The Right Will to Help You Protect Your Family From an Unpredictable Legal Process
Every person should have an estate plan that can protect his or her rights. Dedicated to helping everyday people with simple and complex concerns, we can help you explore your full range of options. A good estate plan will do more than just line up a way to distribute your assets. It will also set up a plan for your medical and financial decisions if you are no longer able to make those decisions yourself. We will use the following tools to help you achieve your objectives:

  • Wills and will contest litigation
  • Living wills
  • Testamentary trusts
  • Life insurance trusts
  • Powers of attorney
  • Health care directives
  • Hand-tailored wills in accordance to your religious convictions

In addition to our estate planning services, we also help New Jersey families through the estate administration process. Whether you have an in-depth estate plan to follow or you have to go through the probate process, we will be there for you every step of the way.
