Established Western New York Estate Planning Lawyer Helps Clients Build Legacies

Knowledgeable Williamsville attorney provides comprehensive legal support

Johanna Oreskovic, Attorney at Law provides a full range of services for those looking to plan for the future through drafting wills, establishing trusts and handle other estate planning matters. Whether you have an estate worth millions or a family home and moderate savings, it’s vital that you take action now to protect those assets in the future. For over 23 years, I have helped clients throughout Buffalo and Western New York make important decisions about financial and health concerns. I provide trusted, compassionate and strategic support to clients who wish to preserve their legacy.

Dedicated legal advisor drafts, reviews and revises wills, trusts and other documents

You work hard for your family, so you should find comfort knowing that you have planned for their long-term financial security and well-being with a well-thought-out estate plan. I can help you develop a strategy that best protects your interests and reflects your desires. Most estate plans contain a combination of these items:

  • Wills — The foundation of your estate plan is your last will and testament, which can detail the distribution of your assets and name a guardian and trustee for your children.
  • Trusts — My firm assists in creating different types of living trusts, which can reduce or eliminate the need for heirs to go through the probate process.
  • Advance directives — I help clients develop living wills and health care proxies, enabling them to designate trusted individuals to manage their health care and/or financial affairs in case they become incapacitated and are unable to do so.

As your life changes, so might your estate planning needs and goals. I remain available if you need to update your will to address changes in marital status, number of children, your financial condition or general lifestyle interests or decisions.

Comprehensive support for guardianships and conservatorships

You can use a will or trust to state your preference for a guardian or conservator to be appointed for a loved one who requires special protection due to age or incapacity, but the final decision will ultimately belong to the court. Without your input, the court’s decision could be one that doesn’t align with your goals, and that person would then have broad legal authority.

I can help you by including your preference for a certain legal guardian to be appointed for your children should something happen to you while they are still minors or have special needs.

Trusted attorney offers strategic estate tax guidance

You should never transfer or make decisions about assets without a full understanding of the tax consequences involved. I provide estate tax advice to individuals, trustees, executors and businesses on a wide range of issues, including:

  • Federal estate taxes
  • Federal gift taxes
  • Generation-skipping taxes
  • Alternative valuation elections

I give guidance to clients based on my decades of experience and am committed to helping them preserve their wealth.
