Bridgeton Probate Attorney
It is difficult enough to deal with the emotional impact of the death of a loved one. Add to that the often-complicated legal process known as probate and you may find yourself feeling overwhelmed. If you are the executor of a will or the appointed administrator of an estate, the assistance of an experienced lawyer can help the process go smoothly.
Since 1978, Theodore Ritter has handled estate administration and probate issues for the people of southern New Jersey. As experienced attorneys we understand the potential complications that may arise in a probate proceeding, and we are equipped to resolve them. While some would have you believe that estate administration is something you can handle on your own, you should know that errors made along the way can cause significant legal and financial problems. You should not have to navigate through a complex legal process on your own; our legal team is ready to guide you every step of the way.
What Are the Benefits of Hiring a New Jersey Estate Administration Attorney?
Estate planning and administration are processes rooted in tradition and founded on some of the oldest legal principles in our nation. Unfortunately, this means that some of the most intricate rules of law are involved. The primary benefit of hiring a lawyer for probate is that we have extensive training and experience handling these laws and making sure that the proper procedures are followed. We understand and pay attention to the details that non-lawyers are prone to miss.
Cost savings is another benefit you will receive by hiring our probate lawyers. Our firm charges reasonable fees, which are easily offset by the savings our clients realize through our ability to minimize estate taxes, process documents efficiently and reduce the time spent in court. You should also note that legal fees are paid out of the estate, not out of your own pocket.
Our attorneys can guide you through probate litigation, should the need arise. Even in close-knit families, disputes over inheritance are a real possibility. If someone was left out of a will or receives less than anticipated, the situation can become difficult. In these circumstances, we use our experience and our sensitive yet firm approach to reach resolutions as quickly and painlessly as possible.
The Ritter Law Firm, L.L.C., is committed to meeting your needs when it comes to estate administration. We welcome the opportunity to meet with you to discuss your specific needs and develop a plan to accomplish your goals.
