Our trust and estate department provides estate, trust and tax planning services for our clients. We protect the interests of our clients by devising estate plans that achieve their personal objectives. We draft wills, trust agreements, powers of attorney, living wills, life insurance trusts and all other documents necessary in the preparation of an effective estate plan. In concert with a client’s accountant, financial planner and investment advisor, we develop strategies for transferring wealth with minimal estate and inheritance tax burdens.
In conjunction with the planning of a New Jersey estate, our trust and estate department can offer estate planning strategies for those clients who own real estate or personal property within the State of Florida. Such planning can avoid a secondary probate in the State of Florida and provide for ease of administration of those Florida assets. In addition, for our clients who are residents of the State of Florida, we offer estate planning strategies which incorporate the use of a revocable trust for the administration of assets, both during one’s lifetime and upon death. Depending on the assets which are transferred into the revocable trust, such a strategy can avoid probate in the State of Florida.
Our trust and estate department can provide estate administrative services commencing from the qualification of the personal representative to the distribution of estate assets and closure of the estate. We assist the personal representative in the procedural requirements to administer an estate including the preparation and filing of applicable estate and inheritance tax returns. The attorneys at Feitlin, Youngman, Karas & Gerson have the experience to handle estate and probate litigation including will contests, will interpretation cases and contested accountings and fiduciary matters.
