Skilled Legal Guidance Through Probate

The probate process can be challenging to understand and take months to complete. At a time when you and your family should be free to grieve, the last thing you want to do is manage the paperwork needed to properly evaluate and process the decedent’s assets. A knowledgeable and experienced probate and estate administration attorney can help take the burden off your shoulders by ensuring that proper procedures are followed and the deceased’s final wishes are fulfilled.

At the Law Offices of Contaldi & Bai, your family is our priority. We want to help honor the decedent’s legacy by making sure their assets pass efficiently through probate and are distributed according to their desires. Our attorneys have years of experience helping families through complex and high-value asset valuation and offer compassionate guidance every step of the way.

Reducing Your Stress And Advocating For Your Family’s Legacy

Several things can happen after a person passes away. If they didn’t have a will, the state of New Jersey may allow some of their assets to pass through simplified probate. This process is much faster and less expensive than the traditional probate process.

The decedent’s assets could also pass through regular probate if they alone owned those assets. The executor of the estate is responsible for creating an inventory of the deceased person’s assets, collecting valuations of their assets, using assets to pay debts and taxes and then finally distributing the remaining assets as the will dictates.

At the Law Offices of Contaldi & Bai, we will walk you through every step of the probate process and ensure that the proper paperwork is filed so you don’t have to worry about the consequences of a mistake. We know that the legal system can be complicated and we’re passionate about helping people through difficult and stressful times. Our lawyers are trustworthy, compassionate and patient and will keep you informed so you know that you’re doing right by your deceased loved one.
