Securing The Future For You And Your Loved Ones
Estate planning is the process by which you plan how your assets, debts, medical care and family obligations will be managed when you die or if you become mentally incapacitated.
I am attorney Michael E. Eisenberg. Backed by more than 30 years of experience, I help clients prepare innovative, strategic and personalized wills, powers of attorney and living wills designed to help them achieve their objectives — both now and after they have passed.

Estate Planning · Wills · Power Of Attorney · Living Wills
Drafting a will is an important first step in preparing a meaningful estate plan. If a will is poorly drafted and the decedent’s intentions are unclear, the probate court may assign an unintended interpretation to the will. It is important to have a qualified attorney draft your will to ensure that your wishes are unambiguous and easy for the court to follow.
I provide clients with tailored estate planning services, including:
- Simple trusts
- Advance health care directives (living wills)
- Medical powers of attorney
- Health care proxies
Estate Administration And Probate
Upon the death of an individual, estate administration comes into play. This involves an accounting of all the assets held by the estate. The administrator must pay the debts of the decedent, participate in the proceedings in probate court, handle the tax obligations of the inheritance, and distribute any remaining assets of the estate. Having an attorney handle estate administration puts a neutral person in charge and is a great way to minimize family disputes.
During the estate administration process, it is possible that conflicts will arise. Estate litigation may result over concerns about undue influence, the competency of the deceased to have made important decisions, and the assets included in the last will and testament.
I am an experienced estate litigation lawyer. I understand the pain, frustration, and stress involved when a loved one passes away and questions linger. I can help you understand your options and look for potential solutions in or out of the courtroom.
