Providing advisory, transactional, and litigation legal services to Bergen County, NJ and the NYC Metro area
Every citizen of New Jersey and New York needs a comprehensive estate plan. Everyone has family assets to protect, and health concerns to consider. An estate plan is not something we do for ourselves, necessarily. The full benefits are likely to be experienced by our heirs and preferred charitable causes. But the peace of mind that comes from knowing that our advanced planning may prevent family disputes, avoid inheritance taxes, maximize and protect the assets available to loved ones and avoid litigation is of great value.
To schedule a review and evaluation of your estate planning needs, or to discuss your need for representation in pending estate litigation in New Jersey, contact a Bergen County estate planning attorney at our firm. Our New York and New Jersey estate planning attorneys are experienced, knowledgeable, and efficient. When our services are enlisted proactively, we can prevent family disputes and help avoid probate taxes.
However, should disputes with executors or other problems arise in the administration of an estate, we are also well qualified to handle estate litigation such as will contests and disputes with executors.
