Our Philosophy

You At the Village Law Firm, our Team is guided by four overriding principles.

Honesty & Transparency

You deserve a lawyer who will be honest with you – about the good, the bad, and the ugly.  You might not always like what we tell you, but we will always be forthright about what your needs are and what we can – and can’t – do to help.
 
For our planning services, you will know how much a service will cost before we get started, so there are no surprises about what the bill will be in the end.  For estate administration services, we charge on an hourly basis.  For these services, it is much more difficult to predict how much work will be involved, but we will keep you abreast of the financial status of the case and how much additional work we expect as things develop.
 

Highest Quality Legal Solutions

We are committed to providing the highest quality legal solutions for our clients.  With decades of experience in the field of estate planning and administration, our attorneys bring knowledge of the technical details that can save millions of dollars in taxes, protect your loved ones from creditors, and avoid fruitless administration proceedings.     
 

Compassion

We deal with some of life’s toughest issues.  Beyond facing your own mortality, you may have a child with special needs or a brother with a substance abuse problem.  And dealing with the loss of a loved one is painful enough in itself.  Having a supportive, understanding team makes a world of difference during such a difficult time.
 

Premium Service

Our clients are busy professionals in New York City.  They are not looking to take on added burdens of paperwork or dealing with bureaucratic financial institutions.  We provide a white-glove service that makes the process as simple and painless as possible for you.
