Wills and Estates

Estate planning encompasses wills, trusts, living wills, health care proxies, and powers of attorney. A will is a legal document which distributes a person's assets after that person dies in accordance with his or her wishes. A will normally distributes only assets that are solely in the person's name at his or her time of death. Jointly owned or possessed assets, as well as life insurance proceeds, retirement accounts, or pensions will normally pass to the designated beneficiary, or to the joint owner of the asset.

Adults over the age of 18, especially those who own property and/or have children, should draft a will and consider how they'd like their affairs to be carried out after they die. Lawyers are an essential resource during the estate planning process. The goal of our attorneys is to protect the estates which our clients have worked hard to build. By listening carefully to our clients, and relying on our knowledge of the complex laws governing estates, we ensure that our clients' wills are legally viable documents that accurately reflect their wishes.

If you have questions about wills, estates, or trusts, please contact the attorneys at Gordon, Tepper & DeCoursey, LLP. Serving Albany, Schenectady, Saratoga, and the Capital District, we work closely with clients to make important decisions regarding the future.

Matrimonial Appeals and Family Court Appeals

If you are not satisfied with the outcome of your matrimonial law or Family Court case, you have the right to appeal and request that a higher court of law review and reconsider the case. To schedule a consultation with one of our appellate lawyers, please contact Gordon, Tepper & DeCoursey, LLP, today, using the form on this page.

Traffic Tickets

We represent clients who have received traffic tickets for offenses such as speeding, reckless driving, driving while intoxicated, and other moving and traffic violations and offenses. Hiring an attorney familiar with New York traffic laws will reduce the overall hassle of fighting a traffic ticket. Depending on your particular case, our lawyers will:

  • plea bargain your charge down to a lesser offense
  • reduce your points to help keep your driving record clean and possibly keep your insurance rates from rising.

Real Estate Closings

Our practice handles all aspects of the real estate closing process. We strive to make our clients’ experiences as smooth and hassle-free as possible. We will review and revise all necessary contracts, advise our clients, work with the lending institution’s counsel and the other side’s counsel, and attend the real estate closing with you. We are available throughout the closing process to answer our clients’ questions and offer practical guidance.
