Responsible Estate Planning Protects Those You Love

For individuals, families and businesses, planning for the future is not simply a smart choice. It is crucial for the preservation of wealth, preparation of business succession and for securing the financial well-being of future generations. Wills, trusts and other estate planning tools are invaluable to families and businesses of every size.

At the Albany, New York, law firm of Cooper Erving & Savage LLP, our attorneys assist clients in identifying estate and business objectives and implementing those objectives in an effective manner. We can help you develop a strategy to ensure that your wishes are carried out and that your goals are met, while avoiding any potential problems that could arise down the line.

Consulting with a lawyer is the first step toward developing an effective estate plan for you or your business. Contact Susan Carroll Picotte, a leading practitioner in this field, to make an appointment. You can reach us by email, or by calling 888-352-3751.


Drafting a simple will is straightforward enough, but it only takes a simple error to cause significant problems down the road. For more complicated trusts and other estate planning tools, the number of potential errors and the consequences of those errors will only increase.

Our attorneys also provide representation and counseling for the administration and probate of estates. We will ensure that the wishes of your loved ones are carried out correctly and will advise you on any tax and financial implications that need to be addressed.

In addition to wills and trusts, our firm can assist clients through:

  • Drafting powers of attorney, healthcare proxies and other planning documents
  • Counseling closely-held and family enterprises
  • Advising not-for-profit corporations
  • Medicare/Medicaid planning, elder care and nursing home planning
  • Guardianships
  • Business succession planning

The first step toward creating an estate plan that will protect you and your loved ones is scheduling a consultation and discussing your goals. Meet with an experienced attorney by calling 888-352-3751 or using our online contact form to schedule an appointment.
