New Jersey Estate Administration

and Probate Laws

Under NJ law, an estate is the total of all property owned by a deceased person prior to the distribution of his/her property in accordance with the terms of a will or trust, or, when there is no will or trust, by the law of intestate succession in New Jersey or the state where the individual lived. The process of estate administration can be complicated. Several things must happen.

The will is proven to be valid or invalid.

The property covered by the will or trust is verified and valued.

The manner in which the property of the decedent is to be

distributed to beneficiaries is established.

Creditors of the decedent are identified and given the opportunity

to file claims against the estate.

Fees and taxes for administration of the estate are established

and paid.

The assets of the estate are distributed to heirs and beneficiaries.


An Estate Administration Attorney 

Can Preserve Estate Assets

By retaining the services of a knowledgeable estate attorney with a background in elder law, you benefit from his/her understanding of New Jersey law and their expertise in preserving estate assets. Reducing estate and inheritance taxes is one way that an estate can retain more of its wealth for the decedent’s heirs. Our attorneys know of legal ways to accomplish this goal.

Actual Client Testimonials

During a difficult period in my life, I called upon Hanlon Niemann to help me as executor to my father’s estate. Mr. Niemann stayed with me every step of the way. He is very professional in his manner and dealings, not only with me but with the attorneys, law firms, creditors and others involved in the probate of my father’s estate. I am very satisfied with his services.

—Ralph Cafaro, Manalapan, NJ

Mr. Niemann has been a god send to me and my family. He has met with me many, many times with patience, sensitivity and understanding that few people expect from an attorney. My family issues are complex and Mr. Niemann understands what I want to happen to my estate upon my death especially for my adult incapacitated child and other adult children. He created a special trust for my son. He has followed up with me to help me make decisions without forcing his opinions on me. In the end, he told me, ”Jerri, my job is to explain your choices and help you understand the legal effect of those choices”. He guides me and puts me at ease. He wants me to make decisions that are the right ones for me.

—Jeraldine Vincitore Freehold, NJ

My wife and I wanted to express our gratitude for the guidance and patience from you and your staff along this journey.  Life is strange at times and the things that bring us together can be just as strange, if not more.
I not only got to put a few bucks in the bank, but got to reconnect with my cousin Sarah, which was a great surprise for me. That alone was worth the journey for me. Getting to know her and the family has been really nice.
I know it was a long day for all of us in mediation, but I really am blessed to have gotten to know you and talk with you. I admire your skills, work ethic and attitude regarding time and Patience. When the opposing attorney was running her big mouth and doing her thing, you never lost your composure, nor your position.  I’m hoping it’s one of the nuggets I’m able to take and implement in my personal/professional life.
The short version of this story is that you have a lot to offer people, you’re a true, trusted advisor. Your words and actions seem to align with your values, which is like common sense, very hard to come by now a days. Your staff does a great job as well. Please let them know that as often as you can.
Keep up the good work Fred and thanks again.
