Trenton Probate Attorneys

Your Advocate in Probate Litigation and Administration

If you have just lost a loved one, your mind and emotions may be in turmoil. It may be difficult to know which steps to take to honor the wishes of your loved one. If your loved one was well prepared with estate planning matters settled, the probate should be relatively simple. If your loved one died without a will, the probate may take longer. At Edward S. Kahn Law Offices, LLC, our Trenton probate lawyers represent clients with the full range of probate administration and litigation needs.

We offer understanding as well as experienced legal advice, administration or litigation of any probate matter, including:

  • Administration
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Claims against estates
  • Estate distribution disputes
  • Estate tax matters
  • Guardianship disputes
  • Inheritance tax matters
  • Probate litigation
  • Trust litigation
  • Undue influence
  • Will contests

Noteworthy case: Our law firm's investigation in a disputed will, revealed that a notarized document which transferred $2,690,750 on the deathbed had been forged. After a fully litigated trial, the judge found that the documents transferring the $2,690,750 had been forged and ordered that the money be transferred back to the estate for proper distribution. The monies were recovered for the rightful beneficiaries.
