Estate planning

You worked hard to accumulate your assets, and you have the right to dispose of them as you see fit. When devising an estate plan, we advise you on how to protect your children, support your loved ones and advance important causes through charitable gifts. After detailed analysis of your estate, we devise a plan to effectively transfer your assets, minimize taxes, establish guardianship for your children, care for your pets, support philanthropic causes and protect your loved ones. We draft a will that reflects your desires and we also establish living trusts if they are appropriate to your estate planning goals.

Probate

After you have lost a loved-one, dealing with the complicated probate process can add to the burden. Our knowledgeable, assiduous attorneys take charge of the probate process and minimize this weight.

We assist executors in all steps of the complex process of probating a will in New Jersey probate court, including:

  • Creating a plan of action to probate the estate fairly and expeditiously
  • Filing the will with the New Jersey probate court
  • Closing and opening bank accounts
  • Transferring assets from the deceased to the estate
  • Paying taxes and other debts
  • Locating beneficiaries
  • Hiring professional expert when necessary

Probate disputes

A probate dispute aggravates the stress and pain of your emotional loss. When probate disputes arise, our attorneys are prepared to challenge an ambiguously or incorrectly executed will or defend your rights against disgruntled beneficiaries. We use our mediation skills to minimize the hostilities between family members that often arise during the emotionally charged process. We are equally ready to fight assertively for your beneficiary rights in New Jersey probate court.
