What is Probate?
Probate is the process by which an “Estate” is distributed according to Will or law to heirs of a deceased. It involves the appointment of an Executor or Administrator, the collection of assets and debts, the filing of an Inheritance Tax return and the distribution of assets. Dealing with the probate process while grieving can be a trying experience. At Pecori & Pecori we have guided thousand of estates through the probate process. It is our goal to make what can be a confusing process as simple and stress-free as possible.
Why Plan Your Estate?
To protect your family and ensure your wishes are met. No one likes to think about the possibility of their disability or death. If you postpone planning for these events until it is too late, however, you run the risk that your needs will not be met or that your intended beneficiaries — those you love the most — may not receive what you would want them to receive.
What is Elder Law?
Elder Law and Special Needs Law are specialized areas of law that involve representing, counseling and assisting seniors, the disabled and their families in connection with a variety of legal issues from Estate Planning to Long Term Care planning to coordination of available government benefits and insurance.
I am proud to say that I am the third generation to practice in my family’s firm. It has been a privilege to practice with my father and my grandfather, Emil Pecori, Sr., who taught me much of what I know about Estate Planning and Probate.
Beyond the law, my grandfather and father taught me how to be a gentleman and how to listen to people. These traits have served me well over my 23 years of practice. I often meet clients during challenging times in their lives and I view it as an honor that they allow me to help them through it.
