Estate planning is an important part of your overall life-plan. Ascertaining what you need for your estate takes time and experience. Depending upon our discussions with you, your estate needs may include a Last Will and Testament, Power of Attorney, Living Will or Medical Directive, Revocable or Irrevocable Intervivos Trust, Special Needs Trust and other estate planning tools. It is important to plan out what will happen to your assets and your heirs in preparation for when you are no longer here, or when and if you become disabled or incapacitated. Each person’s life is special, and you deserve an experienced attorney to help you navigate through what you will need for your own unique situation.

We handle all Probate and Estate Administration matters, such as probating a Last Will and Testament, or probating the Estate of an individual who died Intestate (without a Will). Probate and Estate Administration includes transferring assets through the Will as well as non-probate transfers of the decedent's assets outside the Will, or without a Will.

Each state has its own laws which relate to the Probate process. Oftentimes we are faced with a decedent that has assets in multiple states. If that is the case, an Ancillary Probate is necessary. Because we are licensed in both the states of NJ and NY, this happens often. An Ancillary Probate will need to be done by an attorney licensed from the State where the asset exists. We are able to handle these types of probate without having to have you retain local counsel.

It is important to consult a firm with expertise in this area of the law to ensure that the decedent's assets are distributed properly, expeditiously, and with as little tax consequence as possible. We handle Estate Litigation, as well and will defend your rights as an heir, when necessary. Our fees are usually on an hourly basis, but in some instances, a flat fee may be permitted.
