LARA SASS & ASSOCIATES, PLLC is a boutique trusts and estates law firm with a strong emphasis on providing our clients with white glove service and a holistic, bespoke approach to estate planning.  We also expertly handle all aspects of trust and estate administration and probate.


Our firm designs customized estate plans, unique to each individual's family circumstances, wealth and values, that ensure that, upon our client's possible incapacity and eventual death, his or her family and loved ones will not be unnecessarily burdened by the courts, confusion or conflict.  We work proactively to constantly keep our clients apprised of changes in the law, and help them to capitalize on unseen opportunities and to avoid unforeseen problems.  Clients hire us to render sophisticated advice regarding how to structure their estates, minimize estate and capital gains taxes, title their assets and plan for the succession of their businesses.  Below are some of the qualities that differentiate us:

  • Fixed Fee Arrangement.  Lara Sass & Associates, PLLC charges flat fees for our estate planning services in order to encourage clients to communicate with us, and to enable clients to approve and anticipate all costs before representation even begins.

  • Big Firm Experience.  Upon graduating at the top of her class from New York University School of Law in 1997, Lara M. Sass began working in Manhattan at Willkie, Farr & Gallagher LLP, one of the nation's top law firms.  At Willkie, Farr, she practiced trusts and estates law for many years, focusing on sophisticated planning for high net worth individuals and their families.

  • White Glove Service.  We are proud to provide every client with a highly personalized, concierge level of service. Lara Sass & Associates, PLLC has a strict policy of returning calls, emails and texts from clients within 24 hours of receipt.  We have a 24-hour answering service on call to ensure that a client's needs are always met in a timely manner.

  • Expedited and Meticulous Document Preparation.  After accessing a client's needs and developing a customized estate plan, drafts of documents are meticulously prepared and produced to the client, typically, within a few weeks of our initial meeting. 


  • Client Education.  We take the time to thoroughly understand our clients' needs and objectives before formulating their estate plans, and then educate them about how their estate plans work.

  • Holistic Approach.  Lara Sass & Associates, PLLC prefers to take a holistic approach to estate planning, often working collaboratively with the client's family and trusted advisors, including financial advisors, insurance agents and accountants.  We don't just recommend and draft documents; we also take a close look at ownership and beneficiary designations, asset protection needs, insurance needs and business succession plans to ensure clients are protected.

  • Annual Estate Planning Update.  Every year, we contact our clients to inform them of any changes in the law and to ensure that, as their lives, wealth and families change, their estate plans continue to meet their needs and goals.

  • Estate Planning Maintenance Program. We offer services to guarantee that our clients are being attentive and keeping their estate plans current, in order to ensure that their objectives continue to be met and to make life a lot less complicated for their loved ones. 

  • Secure Digital Archive.  Our Estate Planning Maintenance Program provides our clients with access to their own secure digital archive containing vital estate planning documents, information regarding their final wishes, important accounts and passwords, and more.  Our clients can designate who will have access to which documents. 

  • Trust Services.  We offer peace of mind and turn-key administration to grantors and trustees with respect to often-burdensome gifting matters, including annual assessment of the gifting plan and preparation of gift funding notices, premium notices and Crummey letters.  


  • Legacy Planning Services.  For the family with complex planning issues, we offer an opportunity for an annual meeting with all of the client’s advisors, including accountants, financial advisors and insurance brokers, as well as a meeting with the family to integrate children in wealth planning and preservation.
