Trust & Estates
Leslie J. Garfield & Co., Inc. assists clients in administering the real estate of estates and trusts immediately from inception. When clients pass away, we begin assisting family members, beneficiaries and fiduciaries right away—to ensure that they are properly advised on the valuation of properties. With over forty years of experience we are able to offer advice on the best strategies for maximizing value on the sale of real estate. We work, in conjunction with your tax and legal representation, in providing necessary valuations both in preparation of the Estate and the ultimate disposition of the asset.
We represent individuals and their families, corporations and owners; executors and trustees, including individuals, banks and trust companies; and non-profit institutions including schools, museums, churches, health care organizations, professional societies and private foundations.
