Knowledgeable Estate and Probate Representation

Our Hudson and Middlesex County firm, serving Northern and Central New Jersey, provides a range of estate planning and probate services, including:

  • Estate litigation
  • Probate & Administration
  • Wills
  • Trusts
  • Powers of attorney, including health care powers of attorney

Efficient, Timely and Cost-Effective Probate Administration

After the death of a loved one, we are aware that the stress of legal proceedings can be an additional burden. We provide probate services to efficiently settle an estate in accordance with probate laws, while protecting the rights and interests of the executor and the beneficiaries of the estate. If the deceased had no Will we will proceed expeditiously with administration of the estate.

Our experience and familiarity with such matters enables us to quickly gather the deceased person’s assets, pay any debts that are owed, and divide and distribute the assets according to the provisions of the will or applicable New Jersey law if there was no will.

In some cases, we may be able to avoid the probate process, but in many situations, this is not an option. We can explain how the probate laws apply to your situation and, if needed, guide the estate through probate court in a timely and cost-effective manner.
