Do I Need a Lawyer to Probate and Estate in New Jersey?

There is no question that it is possible for you to probate an estate in New Jersey without the help of an experienced probate attorney, but should you?  I suppose you could change the brakes on your car, too, but is that your field of expertise?  I doubt it.

We have years of experience and a wealth of knowlege.  We don’t mind sharing much of what we have learned over the years with you, because we know from experience that it is very unlikely you can do it all on your own, and will come to us when you need help.  We also know from experience, that if you are an executor of an estate, you should definitley seek the advice and counsel of an experienced probate attorney for three very good reasons: (1) Ours fees get paid out of the assets of the estate, so in effect, you are only paying a portion of the legal fees, (2) If you make a mistake, it is all going to be your fault and you will be personally responsible to the heirs, and (3) You get your executor’s commission whether you get professional help or not, so why not get the professional help you need, and thereby both reduce your stress and your workload?
