Attorney Kenneth Kossoff has the experience to assist with the following niche areas of estate planning and probate:
Companion animal trusts: As a pet owner, you want to ensure that the emergency and long-term needs of your animal are taken care of should you die or become incapacitated. Mr. Kossoff is a shelter pet owner himself and experienced attorney who understands this unique area of the law. He will work with you to devise a pet trust that will address the specific needs of your cat, dog, horse, bird or other companion animal.
High net worth estate planning: No matter how simple or complex an estate plan may be, there often is a gap between things that look good on paper and things that work in the real world. Attorney Kossoff understands these concerns and can review existing plans or help draft wills and trusts that can bridge that gap and ensure that your assets are distributed according to your wishes.
