Estates & Trusts

No person should be without a will. If you die without a will you are leaving the decisions regarding your estate, including your children and your property, to the laws of the State of New Jersey. The state should not be in the position of deciding where your property goes, who will raise your children, or any other issue related to your estate. I make sure that all of the person’s property, both real and personal, is disposed of in line with their wishes. I make sure that the children are taken care of through the establishment of a legal Guardianship and through financial Trusts.

I am able to handle the sensitive area commonly known as second marriages. Many families do not know what to do with their assets when there is a second marriage. They want to take care of their current surviving spouse; however, they also want to make sure that their children of all marriages are provided for or not, upon their death.

Living Wills:

I strongly suggest that an individual has a Living Will. The purpose of the Living Will is to provide for a medical guardian, in the event that you are unable to make medical decisions for yourself. A living will is your declaration that you do not want artificial means of life support. I work with the client to make sure that the language of the Living Will is satisfactorily to meet their wishes.:

A Power of Attorney is the power that a living person gives to an individual to act on their behalf. I excel at drafting those Powers of Attorney. The power can either be general, for all of the person’s needs or for a specific need like a temporary guardianship of the person or for overseeing their financial affairs.
