If you or your family needs assistance with estate planning, contact a skilled and experienced New Jersey lawyer at Levine & Levine in Florham Park. Our Florham Park trusts and estates attorney has a background in accounting and finance. Attorney Brett Levine has decades of practical experience in advising New Jersey families on powers of attorney, living wills, real estate transfers and the tax implications of their estate planning decisions.
For families with a typical asset profile, we prepare wills, living wills or health care directives, powers of attorney, real estate transfers, and special needs trusts. These instruments are intended to make sure that your estate passes smoothly to your heirs, that your health care needs are met according to your specific directions, and that any family members who need special care or treatment will be properly cared for.
For families who have been fortunate enough to have accumulated substantial assets over the course of a career or through inheritance, our New Jersey estate planning lawyer provides all of the services described above, together with additional services and instruments, including:
With our accounting and business experience, we never need to delegate or outsource your family's confidential financial affairs. All of our estate plans are designed to address your specific and unique circumstances, minimize tax exposure, preserve your assets, and keep your family and your legacy out of court.
We represent executors, administrators and personal representatives in both simple and complex estates. We can also marshal assets, pay or contest claims, transfer real estate, distribute bequests, and render interim and final accountings. In contested probate proceedings, we can represent either the estate or the heirs as trial counsel.
Should disputes arise, our attorney will zealously advocate on your behalf in estate litigation, including contested wills and undue influence.
Our New Jersey estate planning attorney has conducted continuing education courses in estate planning for CPA's in Essex County, and also serves as a court-appointed successor trustee in the courts of Morris County and Essex County.
