Knowledgeable New Jersey Lawyer Prepares Authoritative Wills

West New York firm helps clients pass their assets to loved ones

Estate planning is not only for the elderly. Every adult should set clear instructions detailing what should happen to their property after they pass. At Winograd and Schwartz, Attorneys at Law, P.C. in West New York, we offer personalized counsel to clients so that they can create effective wills tailored to their specific goals. Failing to make a will means that state intestacy laws will govern how your property is allocated after your death. It makes much more sense, then, to specify your wishes legally in a plan that suits your own values, especially if you have a spouse, a partner or children that you want to protect. It can be difficult to consider these important matters, but our North Jersey firm will guide you through each step of creating a comprehensive plan that secures your family’s future.

Attorney creates thorough estate plans in Hudson and Bergen counties

A will is both a legal instrument and a document that serves as a final message to your loved ones. To handle both aspects of this process properly, you need an experienced attorney who meets all legal requirements while offering personalized counsel so that your will is as unique as you are. Attorney Laraine Schwartz can guide you through every aspect of the will creation process, advising you on issues such as:

  • Legality — We draft wills in full accordance with New Jersey law, which means your will must be signed by two witnesses. If you choose to make your will self-proving to simplify the probate process, we can arrange to have it notarized as well.
  • Naming an executor — Choosing the person to carry out the terms of your will is an important decision. We ensure you understand the specific duties and responsibilities of an executor so your choice is an informed one.
  • Review and revisions — Life moves quickly, and many people fail to adjust their estate planning arrangements to reflect changes to relationships or finances. If you have not reviewed your will in a few years, we can go over its terms with you and make necessary adjustments.
  • Probate matters — Our firm creates wills that are legal and straightforward. This minimizes the possibility of probate difficulties and helps ensure that your intended beneficiaries will receive their property without undue delay.

No matter the size of your estate or your estate planning goals, our firm will help you meet your objectives at a cost-effective rate. Our staff assists clients in Spanish and English.

Hudson County counselor establishes guardianship provisions

Though many people only associate estate planning with financial arrangements, parents of minor children have a more important concern. For these people as well as those who have legal responsibility for disabled adults, it is essential to formalize care arrangements in the event of an untimely death. We work closely with clients to determine who might be a suitable guardian should their children become orphaned. Our firm creates clear instructions on custody, education and other key parenting issues. If you choose, we can also assist with the establishment of financial instruments to support sons and daughters.
