Probate Attorneys In Ocean County
Families who have just lost a loved one will have to go through the difficult process of dividing up that person’s belongings and assets. While this can be fairly simple if the correct documents are in place, sometimes things get confusing or arguments break out over what the deceased’s intentions really were, or whether one person or another had “undue influence” over the deceased. Perhaps there is a question of mental capacity when the will was created. When this happens, having a lawyer who understands New Jersey probate law is crucial.
Our Toms River probate and estate planning lawyers have over two decades of experience in helping people settle the estates of their family members. We represent people in probate court matters, including:
- Probate of estates and estate administration
- Estate litigation, including contested wills
- Conservatorships and guardianships
