ESTATE PLANNING

New Jersey Estate Planning Attorneys

While planning for the disposition of your property upon your death may be an uncomfortable topic, an organized estate plan is one of the greatest gifts that you can leave your family members. Whether you are just starting out or are well past retirement, planning for the inevitable will protect your family and help them get through one of the most difficult times in their lives. Keep in mind that if you die without a will or proper estate plan, your wishes for the distribution of your estate will be given no weight. Instead, your estate will be distributed according to a statutory formula set by law.

Sanvenero & Cittadino is committed to helping people put the necessary plans in place to ensure that their future wishes are properly carried out. Our lawyers assist individuals and families throughout New Jersey, including multi-generational and blended families, with all types of estate planning issues. We also counsel fiduciaries (e.g. executors and trustees) in connection with estate and trust administration matters and represent both fiduciaries and beneficiaries in contested estate administration matters that may, or may not, lead to litigation.

we take a comprehensive approach with our clients. Our lawyers are prepared to assist clients with virtually every aspect of wills, trusts and estate planning, including:

  • Wills and Trusts Preparation

  • Estate Planning, including Living Wills and Powers of Attorney

  • Guardianships

  • Special Needs Planning

  • Probate/Estate Administration and Will Contests

  • Elder Law

  • Generation Skipping Planning

  • Charitable Planning

  • Private Foundations

Our estate planning lawyers spend a significant amount of time talking with our clients to develop a clear understanding of their wishes and concerns for the future. We also carefully explain the estate and tax laws so that our clients have a thorough understanding of the impact their choices will have on their families. Through our years of experience, we know that every family is unique and that clients come to us with different needs. Our job is to help you explore the different avenues available to accomplish your stated goals. In doing so, we will give thorough consideration to all of the issues you face, and we will work with you to develop a customized plan that is consistent with your objectives.

When contested estate matters arise, we look to provide guidance as to the likelihood of success. We consider all non-litigation settlement options, but we also provide sophisticated representation in the event that a trial is the only option. We are prepared to vigorously advocate on your behalf at every stage of the process.
