Experienced Estate Planni…

Proudly Serving Cheektowaga, West Seneca, & Other WNY Areas

Estate planning enables you to determine how your assets will be distributed — and how medical and family decisions will be carried out — in the event of your death or if you become mentally incapacitated. Developing the right estate plan is the best way to build and protect your legacy.

At the Buffalo area estate planning law firm of Smolarek Law, we help clients in Western New York realize both their financial and their family goals by helping them create personalized estate plans. Whether your estate is large or small, we are the firm to contact for trusted counsel throughout every stage of your estate planning process.

A comprehensive estate plan should address your needs while you are living and include a smooth transition to your heirs. At Smolarek Law Offices, we utilize a variety of planning tools to cover all of your long-term goals and address the special needs of your family, including:

  • Last Will and Testament - This is a legal document that defines how you want your estate to be distributed after you are gone. It can name alternate guardians for your children who are under 18 years old.
  • Powers of Attorney - This legal document allows someone to handle your financial affairs and act on your behalf if you cannot do. This person can be your husband, wife, child, friend or another responsible person.
  • Probate and Estate Administration - This legal process includes administering the decedent’s estate and distributing assets according to their Last Will and Testament.
  • Living Will and Health Care Proxy - This process allows you to choose one person who  will make health care decisions for you if you lose the ability to make decisions yourself. The Living Will states your preferences for medical treatment. 
  • Elder Law - We offer legal advice for seniors including Estate Planning, Medicaid/Long Term Care Planning and Probate Law.
  • Medicaid Planning - We offer legal advice when it comes to the complicated Medicaid laws. Let us help you protect your family and assets.
