Estate planning is not just for those who are up in years—everyone who is of majority age should have certain documents in place to ensure that their wishes are followed in the event of an unforeseen accident or other occurrence. We assist many clients with estate planning in New York, Florida, Arizona and Nevada. Here are the most common forms:
We handle Social Security Disability (SSD) cases throughout the country. To be eligible to receive either social security disability or qualify for SSI benefits (based on need), the following eligibility criteria must apply:
Not every estate requires a probate. We will assist you with determining what steps must be taken in order transfer your loved one’s assets in the most efficient and cost effective way possible. If a court proceeding is necessary, we can assist the executor with getting appointed by the court as quickly as possible. The processes and length of time required vary significantly depending on the decedent’s state of residence.
We assist clients with Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcies. For the most part, which chapter is appropriate depends on the client’s gross annual income.
Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is sometimes referred to as a “liquidation” or a “straight bankruptcy.” Eligibility for filing is based on: 1) whether you exceed the income limit in your jurisdiction; and 2) whether you have filed in the last eight years. Most Chapter 7 Bankruptcies proceed quickly and are finalized several months after case filing.
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is known as a “reorganization” and is an available option for people whose income exceeds the limit in their jurisdiction or for those who are not eligible to file a Chapter 7 due to a prior case filing. The amount of the Chapter 13 Plan Payment is still often much lower than the amount that debtors were paying to their creditors on a monthly basis prior to filing.

Ms. Montante handled several cases for me, all of which had great outcomes. The SSD (social security disability) case was a nightmare until I called her and she was able to straighten everything out and handled all of the paperwork involved. Just a great attorney all around. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Jim W. - Social Security Disability & Family Law
I really appreciate Ms. Montante’s due diligence and efforts to get materials to show what was going on. She pushed me to continue with my case and that’s huge. She has a way of being emphatic and had faith in me. I would not have pursued this case without her listening and grabbing on to it. I am still in shock (that benefits were awarded).
Marianne R. - Social Security Disability

I really enjoyed my services from Jennifer Montante’s office. She did an excellent job helping me.
Harry S. - Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
Ms. Montante did a fantastic job with my Social Security Disability case. She worked hard to do whatever was needed. I really thought that I was going to have to go before a Judge and was really nervous but somehow Ms. Montante was able to convince Social Security to see my side of things without even going to court. I really appreciate it.
