Our very own local Flushing estate lawyer gets featured on Vox! This is a proud day for all of us here in Flushing Queens as this is a major national news publication.
The articles describe the motivation, background story, joys and difficulties of Roman Aminov. He grew up locally in Forest Hills and Jamaica Estates then attended Baruch College earning a B.S degree in Real Estate Development and then onto St. Johns School of Law for his J.D.
He states that when he was in law school while taking a trust and estates courses in law school everything changed. To him, it was the perfect fit and set the stage for his successful law firm which he has today. He said that while taking the class he discovered he loved the subject because it was not abstract tax concepts that only a few benefited from, but rather gave him the opportunity to work with real people, real cases, and offer a personal touch.
The one key takeaway is that it is never too early to start estate planning. He discussed many scenarios where people came to him later in life, and it was simply not possible to morally (or legally) create their will or do their probate or estate planning. The creator of a will or trust or any other state or end-of-life planning must be in a proper mindset and aware of their surroundings. He has even brought in doctors to confirm his own decision in some cases!
He says that even in your 30’s and 40’s you should be considering the big decisions regarding your estate as there are many factors most people just aren’t aware of.
This type of law is not easy, but it is rewarding. Despite sharing tears and some of the most challenging moments with some of his clients, he says that what he offers is that “This is going to take some time, with many small steps along the way. Follow the steps, little by little, file the forms, contact the banks, and we’ll get through this.”
Despite not being trained in psychology Roman Aminov’s advice seems accurate, gentle and professional.
It is not always pretty though. He shares some moments where there were serious wedges between families, wedges that could have been avoided if planning had started sooner.
But in the end, it’s the human-to-human contact that is what’s important. At the end of the day, a probate and estate planning lawyer can leave his office, knowing he has made a real difference in his community. With his skills and knowledge, he helps guide his clients through difficult situations, saving their estate and finances so they can better take care of themselves and their families.
