In New York and New Jersey, the probate process – establishing the validity of a will and obtaining the appointment of the executor(s) – should be straight-forward, simple and relatively inexpensive. Never the less, sometimes problems arise. The legal proficiency and nearly four decades of experience of Kantrowitz, Goldhamer & Graifman, P.C. can help you avoid or resolve litigation.

The best way to avoid probate issues is through solid estate planning. Without effective planning, heightened emotions following the death of a loved one can serve to produce issues and disputes among family members. When even the best efforts cannot completely eliminate outrageous allegations of undue influence, incompetency or fraud, our KGG  probate and estate lawyers protect your rights.

At Kantrowitz, Goldhamer & Graifman, P.C., we assist you and your family to prepare for and go through the probate process, beginning with estate planning that can withstand any challenge. In addition to probate cases, KGG can assist you in any aspect of estate planning, including: durable powers of attorney, advanced health care directives, Medicaid planning, trusts, life insurance, business succession planning and guardianships.

When an estate or trust is in administration, we coordinate efforts with executors and trustees to see to it that you, the beneficiary, receive the justice you are due. Our attorneys are experienced in diplomatically handling investigation, negotiation and litigation with equal resolve.

Need to Contest a Will in Probate Court?

If you have been deprived of your rightful inheritance because a loved one has fallen prey to manipulation, we can help put things right. We can contest a will or trust if you believe the document was drafted or executed incorrectly, or if it was the result of undue influence or duress. Spouses are entitled to a specific share of an estate under law. If you are a spouse who has been disinherited by a will or trust, we will protect your rights in court to ensure you receive everything to which you are entitled.

If it becomes necessary to present your matter in a courtroom, we will not hesitate to be forceful in the defense of your rights. No matter where your probate, estate or trust administration takes you, we can be right there alongside you with solid support and quality legal guidance that protects your rights.
