From Ettinger Law Firm

‘Ettinger Law Firm, located on 125 Wolf Road in Albany, has been exclusively engaged in estate planning and elder law since 1991. For two decades, we have been working to help senior citizens to avoid probate proceedings; save legal fees; reduce or eliminate estate, capital gains and income taxes. Protecting our clients’ assets from nursing home costs with Medicaid Planning or a Medicaid Asset Protection Trust is also one of our main areas of expertise.’

Our lawyers have seen people refuse an inheritance for several reasons, but some of the most common reasons why people refuse a bequest include:

▪ The individual prefers that the assets pass to the alternate beneficiary instead
▪ The individual has a large estate of their own and does not need the assets
▪ The assets that are being passed on require a lot of maintenance
▪ The asset is a property that is “underwater” and requires extensive repairs
