Ms. Arthurs concentrates her practice on trust and estate planning and administration in both New York and Florida.  She assists individuals, families and business owners with developing tailored estate plans that not only fit their current personal and financial needs, but also provide long-term strategies for preserving and transferring family wealth to future generations.  She creates personalized plans for clients and their families at various stages of life, whether it be drafting wills, health care proxies, powers of attorney and trust documents for young families; counseling high net worth individuals on estate and gift tax savings techniques; or guiding clients through probate, trust and estate administration.

Ms. Arthurs also works closely with clients and their financial advisors, accountants and insurance agents to successfully coordinate, implement and administer their estate plans.
