New Jersey Estate Litigation & Estate Planning Attorneys

Our estate planning attorneys work closely with clients to create or update comprehensive estate plans that address financial, guardianship and health care objectives in the event of their death or they become incapacitated. If you have been appointed to settle an estate, an experienced estate planning attorney can guide you through that process, providing guidance and legal advice.

Estate planning isn’t only for the rich. An effective plan created with the assistance and input of an estate attorney can ensure assets go to the right beneficiaries, name guardians for and protect young children, minimize estate tax exposures, and prevent legal disputes.

We take a client-centered approach and work with estates of all sizes.

Essential Estate Planning Documents

An estate plan should allow for the transfer of assets to family members in the event of your death. A defined plan will also include ways for family members to access and control assets and make appropriate medical decisions if you become unable to do so.

The following documents are all important parts of a comprehensive estate plan you will receive from one of our experienced estate planning lawyers:

    Last Will & Testament

    A will is a legal document that should make sure your wishes are honored when you pass away, dictating how your assets are allocated.

    Durable Power of Attorney

    A Durable Power of Attorney is an authorization that allows someone else to make financial and legal decisions on your behalf if you mentally incapacitated.

    Medical Power of Attorney

    An authorization that allows someone else to make health care decisions on your behalf if you are unable to communicate your wishes.

    Living Trust

    A living trust allows assets to be distributed before the grantor passes away. Unlike a will, a trust becomes active the day it is created.

    Living Will

    A living will is legal document that states your preferences regarding medical care to prolong your life in the event you are unable to refuse or provide consent.

    Full Service

    Our attorneys handle a full and potentially complex range of estate planning, probate, guardianship, asset allocation, and health care related matters.
