Trusts & Estates Lawyer
Nicole Israel O’Reilly is a Trusts & estates lawyer who specializes in helping families pass on a legacy of love and care. She is passionate about educating and empowering clients to make the best decisions for themselves and their loved ones. Nicole believes that the estate planning process is not only about passing on your financial wealth but also passing on intellectual, spiritual and human assets. Through a relationship-based, client-centered practice Nicole advises clients through the often complicated decision process around estate planning and works to ensure those plans work in the years to come.
Nicole is a member of the New York City Bar Association, New York State Bar Association and New Jersey State Bar Association. She is licensed in New York and New Jersey. Nicole enjoys spending her time educating her community on the estate planning process and the best ways to protect your loved ones.

In addition, she has worked as a senior analyst for Livingston Capital Management, an investment management firm offering funds in the public securities space and angel investing space.
Nicole attended Boston University where she earned her B.A. in Economics, Columbia University for her M.S. and received her J.D. from New York Law School.
Most importantly, Nicole is a wife, and a mom to an adventurous two-year old. When she’s not chasing after her son, she enjoys traveling with her family and experimenting in the kitchen.
There’s a common misconception that estate planning is only helpful for older individuals or those with a lot of money and property. However, anything can happen at any time. No matter your financial status or age, it’s helpful to have estate planning in place for various reasons. Working with a Guardianship lawyer in New York and New Jersey or a lawyer for Wills can protect your loved ones just as much as your assets.
Estate planning also helps ensure that your advance medical directives are in place should you be unable to make medical or financial decisions.
