New Jersey Probate Attorneys

How our NJ real estate attorneys help you

Probate, in simple terms, is the process of proving that a specific will is valid, as well as administering the decedent’s estate according to the terms in the said will. Probate law is not as simple as it sounds because every situation is unique and can be riddled with possible scenarios that complicate it—situations such as the absence or incompleteness of a will, unexpected creditors, contests, disputes, deadlines, etc.

Our Free Consultation Process

We’ve been in the business long enough to understand how important it is for clients to have a genuine connection with their attorneys, especially when it comes to legal concerns as complicated as probate. We totally agree with that. We at the Law Offices of Patel, Soltis, and Cardenas want you to make the best decisions from the very start, even in selecting the lawyers to represent you.

We want to be a legal team that you can trust and build a connection with. Allow us to show this to you through a Free Strategy Session where we do the following for you:

  1. Thoroughly discuss all of the legal issues that you are facing.
  2. Review and discuss the various legal defenses and options available to you.
  3. Prepare and deliver a concise list of the facts of your case or situation. This can be used to interview other attorneys, if desired.

The rationale behind our free strategy session is this: We do not work with clients if we don’t believe we can win for them. So we do a probate case evaluation, review your available options, and if during the session either of us feel that working together on your case would not be the best idea, then nothing has been lost.

Our priority is in winning our clients’ cases, and we look forward to helping you win yours.
