Elder Law

Attorney William M. Finucane has decades of experience working with clients to help them develop comprehensive, flexible, and effective estate plans. Regardless of your age, financial condition, family circumstances, and employment status, it is important to have an estate plan in place. During the estate planning process, Mr. Finucane will help you explore all of your options with regard to preparing a will and using trusts, powers of attorney, and other estate planning tools to minimize your estate’s tax burden while ensuring that your final wishes are carried through.

Mr. Finucane also regularly represents clients in probate and trust administration.

Real Estate

Our firm has extensive experience representing all parties to residential and commercial real estate transactions in the Adirondack Park and the area. Mr. Finucane has a long history of assisting clients with matters involving the Adirondack Park Agency, and we regularly advise clients regarding purchase and lease transactions, mortgage and foreclosure issues, title and zoning issues, and other real estate-related matters. We provide legal services for real estate closings and property management as well.

Business Law

For businesses in Elizabethtown and throughout the Adirondacks, our services start with entity counseling and formation, and continue throughout the business lifecycle. We can assist you in choosing whether to form a corporation, limited liability company (LLC), or other legal entity, and we can prepare all of the documentation necessary to properly establish your entity and shield your personal assets from liability.
We also advice clients on issues such as directors’ and officers’ liability, franchising, reorganizations, joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions, dissolutions, and shareholders’ rights, and we provide experienced representation for business and commercial transactions, funding and financing matters, business succession planning, and employment-related issues as well.


Our litigation practice focuses in the areas of real estate and estate administration. If you have run into issues in connection with a real estate transaction or construction project in the Adirondacks, we can help you enforce your rights or protect yourself against allegations of impropriety. If you need an attorney to assist you during probate or trust administration, we can assist you here as well. In all disputes, we focus on conflict resolution.
