Our estate planning attorneys, each with an advanced law degree in taxation, have extensive experience in estate planning and administration.
Estate Planning Wills and Trusts:
We prepare simple and complex wills and trusts and advise clients on all aspects of estate and asset protection planning. We use sophisticated tax and estate planning techniques to minimize or eliminate federal and state income and estate transfer taxes.
Estate and Trust Administration:
We represent executors, administrators and trustees in all aspects of estate and trust administration.
Guardianships are necessary when a person is declared by a judge to be incapacitated or otherwise incapable of making life, medical, or financials decisions without the assistance of a family member, caregiver, or another neutral third party. We advise and counsel clients on the best course of action to take when filing for guardianship on behalf of a family member.
Estate and Trust Litigation:
When disputes arise between family members, beneficiaries, and fiduciaries such as executors and trustees, we can help. Our estate litigation attorneys have the knowledge and experience to resolve any estate and trust matter fairly and efficiently.
We practice regularly before the probate courts of the State of New Jersey in all aspects of estate and trust administration, including will contest proceedings and family disputes.
Business Succession Planning:
We advise clients in connection with the disposition of closely-held and family-owned businesses, including developing plans for the transfer of ownership to succeeding generations and the drafting of sophisticated buy-sell agreements.
