BINGHAMTON (WBNG) -- In today’s Lawyers on Call, Associate at Coughlin & Gerhart Keegan Coughlin explains what happens when someone dies without a will.

“In New York if someone passes away without a having a last will and testament it is said that this person has died intestate,” Coughlin said. “That means the individual’s assets that are in their name alone will be distributed in accordance with the New York State intestacy statute.”
