Estate Planning: Essential For Everyone
If you have arrived at this webpage because you wonder how to be proactive about the legacy you will someday leave behind, we applaud your thoughtful approach. Peace of mind is priceless.
Founded in 1971, our law firm has welcomed multiple generations of clients who have come through our doors. We are keenly aware of the difference it can make when a business owner, farmer, educator or any New Jersey resident gives estate planning the place it deserves in a lifetime of work and purpose.
We work hard to guide clients to brighter days ahead in many areas of life such as educational careers, agribusiness development and land ownership. Within these and other contexts, we appreciate every opportunity to integrate estate planning into our general counsel.
We also help those who are responsible for administering loved ones’ estates in accordance with decedents’ wishes.
