New Jersey Estate Planning Attorneys Helping Individuals and Families Plan for the Future
While planning for the disposition of your property upon your death may be an uncomfortable topic, an organized estate plan is one of the greatest gifts that you can leave your family members. Whether you are just starting out or are well past retirement, planning for the inevitable will protect your family and help them get through one of the most difficult times in their lives. Keep in mind that if you die without a will or proper estate plan, your wishes for the distribution of your estate will be given no weight. Instead, your estate will be distributed according to a statutory formula set by law.
The Wills, Trusts & Estates Practice at Einhorn Barbarito is committed to helping people put the necessary plans in place to ensure that their future wishes are properly carried out. Our lawyers assist individuals and families throughout New Jersey, including multi-generational and blended families, with all types of estate planning issues. We also counsel fiduciaries (e.g. executors and trustees) in connection with estate and trust administration matters and represent both fiduciaries and beneficiaries in contested estate administration matters that may, or may not, lead to litigation.

Our job is to help you explore the different avenues available to accomplish your stated goals. In doing so, we will give thorough consideration to all of the issues you face, and we will work with you to develop a customized plan that is consistent with your objectives.
When contested estate matters arise, we look to provide guidance as to the likelihood of success.
