At the D'Onofrio Law Office, P.C., I have been assisting clients with their estate planning matters for over 30 years. Through years of working in this field, I have gained extensive insight into all types of estate planning and probate matters. I am here to offer you my knowledge and experience so you can easily and confidently put a plan in place that will aim to protect your wealth, maximize your estate and reduce taxes as much as legally possible.

I am dedicated to providing my clients with affordable, personalized representation.

Providing for those with Special Needs

One of the most rewarding aspects of my job is assisting mothers and fathers with establishing special needs trusts for their disabled sons and daughters. Whether your child has autism, Down syndrome, or suffers from another medical condition, a special needs trust can be extremely beneficial for your child. I can help your family tailor a special needs trust that will ensure your child is well cared for, while not sacrificing their vital government benefits.

Why estate planning?

An estate plan is an important component of every financial plan. Whether you have a large estate and are very wealthy, or if you have a small estate, estate planning is for everyone.

  • An estate plan goes beyond naming beneficiaries in a will, it can allow you to designate a guardian for minor children if you become incapacitated or if you die,
  • It allows you to name an executor to manage your estate, and
  • It can allow you to bequeath assets to close friends, distant relatives or charities who wouldn't normally benefit from your generosity under state law.
  • Estate planning gives you control over your finances and it can enable you to establish a legacy, which is becoming harder to accomplish without help in these unstable economic times.
  • With estate planning, you are in control of your future, and I would be happy to help you reach your goals and create a lasting legacy for generations to come!

In addition to estate planning, I assist personal representatives (executors, administrators, trustees) with probate administration, trust administration and trust settlement. When you enlist my services, you will receive competent and professional legal representation, all aimed at efficiency and reliability.
