Estate Planning Wills And Trusts

“Long-standing relationships of trust make us the modern equivalent of the family lawyer.” ― Attorney Marianne Sussman.

With a sound estate plan in place, you can rest assured that your wealth is protected. You may be able to take advantage of tax-saving opportunities, and your wealth is distributed in the manner of your choosing. You can appoint trusted family members or others to make critical decisions about your future medical treatment, and financial and business transactions. Without sound estate planning guidance, including advance health care directives, these critical goals could be left to chance. At Marcus, Gould & Sussman, LLP, we understand the importance of sound, comprehensive estate planning. We can provide you with the guidance you need to make the right decisions as you establish estate planning documents in New York.

Our firm is known for its sophisticated estate planning and estate administration practice led by partner Marianne Sussman. Clients gain significant benefits from her depth of experience in tax issues and wealth preservation strategies. We are now handling complex estate planning for a second generation of clients from the same families.

An Estate Plan Tailored To Your Needs

Every client has unique estate planning needs. We do not apply a one-size-fits-all approach when establishing estate plans. We work personally with our clients to gain an understanding of their unique needs. After evaluating your legal and financial goals, our estate planning lawyers can guide you in establishing:

  • Wills
  • Trusts
  • Powers of attorney
  • Health care proxies and living wills

Sound estate planning can protect your assets and spare your loved ones from unnecessary expense and conflict in the future. We have the experience to establish an estate plan that protects your interests and the interests of your loved ones.


Sometimes, your loved ones need assistance in managing their business affairs and personal needs. They may be elderly and have become unable to care for themselves or their property, or they may be disabled of any age who cannot effectively manage their financial and personal matters. Attention to the particular circumstances and the person’s specific needs will assure safe and effective management of both personal and business matters. Attorney Marianne Sussman will develop with you the most effective and efficient plan, whether through a guardianship proceeding or alternative legal approaches.
