Thank you for inquiring about our

Simple Last Will and Testament for Parishioners.

Wills are extremely important, yet at the same time, something that many of us procrastinate about. Our approach is to make Wills affordable and reliable, which helps ensure that the wishes of our clients are carried out. That is one of the reasons our documents are drafted using effective, yet simple "non-legalese" language, so that you can clearly understand what you are signing and control 'who gets what.'

To set up an appointment, or to get more information, feel free to give me a call at 212-268-8200 or email me directly.
