Will, Trusts & Estates

Wills, Trusts & Estates

As one of the firm’s speciality areas of practice, Rowland & Petroff has extensive experience in the representation of clients in cross border estate matters. This includes will probate, estate administration proceedings, and ancillary proceedings both in the United States and Europe. We especially focus on New York, Florida, and German inheritance law and the law of descent and distribution.

Our services include will preparation and estate planning for U.S. and foreign nationals. We also perform services in the areas of legalization, authentication and recognition of foreign executed documents. Where necessary we work with local attorneys in other states and countries in handling multi-jurisdictional estate matters, and with genealogists to find relatives and trace lost property.

We also specialize in tracing artworks lost due to Nazi persecution and finding property lost in eastern Germany. Should you need assistance in these areas, please do not hesitate to contact us for a free consultation.
