The firm has offices in Woodbridge and Roseland, New Jersey.
Our Tax, Trusts & Estates Department provides a full spectrum of basic and sophisticated services for individuals, business owners, corporate executives and directors, non-profit and tax exempt entities, and professionals in all phases of business and personal tax, estate planning and administration, and employee benefits. While many of the firm's clients are mid-market businesses and company owners doing business in New Jersey and elsewhere, we also work with out of state firms doing business in New Jersey. For all clients, our services may include representation in these areas:
• Wealth preservation and accumulation strategies
• Asset protection planning
• Tax minimization
• Tax controversies, both federal and state
• Succession planning
• Elder law issues
• Employee benefits
• Executive compensation
• Estate litigation
• Non-profit/tax exempt issues
As our population ages, elder law issues affect not only families, but also employees in the workplace who may be responsible for caring for relatives. Our Department offers a full menu of services in the area of elder law, which encompasses:
• Planning for government programs and benefits such as Medicaid
• Powers of attorney
• Living wills and medical directives
• Special needs trusts
• Medicaid applications
Our Department has also worked on some of the most complicated trusts and estates matters in New Jersey. We are nationally known for our work in probate law, and we have substantial experience in trust and estate administration and wealth preservation for high net worth individuals and owners of closely-held businesses. All clients, those with substantial wealth and sophisticated planning issues as well as those with very basic needs, receive the benefit of our broad professional experience.
Our lawyers advise individual and corporate fiduciaries on all facets of estate and trust administration, preparation of state and federal death and fiduciary income tax returns, post-mortem tax planning, and fiduciary accountings. We handle will contests, will and trust construction and other fiduciary litigation for individuals, as well as for bank trust departments.
Our tax practice is a cornerstone of the Department. A majority of our lawyers hold secondary postgraduate degrees, such as a master of laws in taxation. Our tax work covers the complete range of tax requirements involved in the sale, acquisition, ownership, structure, operation and succession of privately and publicly owned businesses. We are seasoned in representing clients in administrative proceedings before the Internal Revenue Service and other governmental agencies at both the state and local levels.
