Essex County, New Jersey, Estate Administration Lawyer

If you live in New Jersey and you have a Will that must pass through probate, here is some good news: New Jersey has the most enlightened probate process of any state in the United States.


Will Contests Can Derail the Probate Process

Probate is not a court-based process here, so the process is speedy and simple, not glacially slow. Once the will is submitted for probate, you don’t set foot in a courthouse unless someone is contesting the will or final accounting of the executor or administrator of the estate.
