Reliable Brooklyn Trusts and Estates Attorney
Planning your estate is the best way you can protect your hard-earned assets, your family and your future health. As a highly respected, AV® Preeminent™ Peer Review Rated estates attorney in Brooklyn, Peter G. Gray advises you on your estate options, including the use of wills and trusts. He also helps you plan for other needs, including providing for your children and establishing representatives to make financial and health care decisions should you become unable to do so yourself.
Your estate consists of all of your property and assets, including your family home, real estate, savings, jewelry and clothes, automobiles and any other property you own. When you pass away, your estate should be bequeathed to your named beneficiaries in a will or other legal instrument. As an experienced Brooklyn estate planning attorney, I help you draft all your necessary estate planning instruments and related documents regarding your health care decisions, finances and family:
- Health care proxies
- Guardianship provisions
- Deed transfers
- Medicaid and elder planning
Before your property can be distributed according to the terms of your will, the will must be submitted to the Surrogate’s Court for probate. A knowledgeable Brooklyn will attorney can assist with this process.
Trusts are another way you can distribute your estate and transfer assets to your beneficiaries. Trusts are often used to avoid lengthy probate and minimize tax consequences, and may be created during your lifetime or after your death. There are many different types of trusts a trusts and estates attorney in Brooklyn can help you create, each of which have a specific purpose:
- Revocable living trusts
- Irrevocable living trusts
- Charitable trusts
- Special needs trusts
- Pet trusts
- Family trusts
As an experienced Brooklyn deeds attorney, I help you ensure your trust is properly funded through the appropriate deeds and other estate planning documents.

Medicaid planning for elder estate planning
Medicaid, a federal and New York State health program, is intended to help elders with low incomes and limited assets. It is a complex program that can confuse even the most sophisticated minds. As a Brooklyn living wills lawyer and estate attorney, I strive to help you understand how Medicaid may suit your needs and explain all its rules, regulations and financial consequences so you can make the most informed decisions for your situation.
