As you cope with the loss of your loved one it can be difficult to think about anything else. And the grief from such a devastating loss can make other tasks, even vital ones related to estate and probate, feel overwhelming.

At Bercik Law, we’re here to help by providing our clients with legal counsel in key areas related to estate and probate in New Jersey.

Estate Planning

Planning ahead, especially with the help of an experienced lawyer, can help you prevent estate-related issues in the future.

At Bercik Law, our comprehensive, clear, and effective estate planning is designed to meet your needs and provide you with the peace of mind you deserve. We take the time to guide you through the entire process, answer your questions, and help you create a plan that allows your legacy to be passed down as you intended.

Probate and Estate Litigation

If there are conflicts or disagreements surrounding the management of your deceased loved one’s estate, having a trusted lawyer by your side can help to make it less burdensome.

Our Bercik Law team is experienced in addressing probate issues (from the use of vague language in the will itself to disputes about the division of assets). We can help you get clear on what factors impact your particular case and can provide legal insight to help you reach a resolution.

Estate Administration

Whether you or someone you love is tasked with handling a loved one’s estate, you’ll likely have questions or concerns regarding how to do so legally and effectively.

Estate administration is a multifaceted process and can become overwhelming when combined with grief and potential disagreements regarding the estate and the distribution of assets. Laws related to estate administration vary by state, so having a New Jersey lawyer to guide you through this procedure can provide you with a far less stressful experience while giving you peace of mind that you are doing what is required legally.

Will Contests

Wills are designed to guide the division of one’s assets after their death or incapacitation, but even when a loved one took steps to create a will there are potential legal issues that can arise. Someone involved may question the validity of the will because they are concerned about the undue influence of another party on the decedent or they worry about their loved one’s lack of capacity. Either way, if the will is called into question, legal guidance can play a vital role in moving toward a resolution.

At Bercik Law, we have experience in contesting wills and in helping clients when a will they’re tasked with is called into question.

Will contests are based on numerous, different grounds.
If you are involved in estate litigation regarding an estate’s settlement in New Jersey, the attorneys at Bercik Law are here to help.

Estate Litigation

If you’re overseeing a deceased loved one’s estate, there may be legal issues that arise as you do your part to manage the estate.

Whether there are disputes about the administration of the estate, the duration of the asset distribution, concerns about breaches of trust, or familial disputes in the absence of a will, many circumstances are best addressed through litigation. Working with a compassionate, experienced, and insightful lawyer is the best way to overcome any challenges along the way.
