Jennifer’s practice focuses on estate planning, probate and estate administration, as well as transactional work including commercial and residential real estate sales and leasing, business formations and sales of businesses and business assets. Jennifer takes pride in her commitment to providing individualized and personal attention to her clients.
Jennifer aids people with the decisions required for developing estate plans, whether it is deciding on guardians for their children or what types of trusts to establish based on the size and configuration of their estates and their beneficiaries, whether they are seeking to control the distribution of assets or minimize estate and inheritance taxes. Jennifer has drafted wills and trusts for people whose main assets are their home and retirement accounts, and for those who need complex wills and trusts to minimize the significant tax liability which can and will occur without proper planning. Jennifer has experience in helping people who have been appointed as executors to navigate the probate system and to assist in the detail oriented administration of an estate, and to prepare and file the federal and New Jersey estate and inheritance tax returns and close the estate. Jennifer helps clients who have recently suffered the loss of a loved one to wade through the detailed and sometimes frustrating process of collecting assets, preparing estate and inheritance tax returns and distributing assets according to the terms of the decedent’s last will and testament. She assists and counsels the executors of estates in meeting their fiduciary obligations.
Jennifer has extensive experience litigating cases including personal injury trials, workers’ compensation hearings, unemployment hearings, administrative law hearings, and probate and real estate litigation.
