Helping clients with wills, healthcare planning, and all legal documents and processes needed for estate planning or probate

A will determines how your estate will be distributed after your death. In your will, you name an executor to handle the distribution. If there is no will, the estate is “intestate,” and is handled according to the laws of New Jersey.

Attorney Alan G. Cosner is a former Internal Revenue Service agent and accountant. He is experienced with helping people limit their tax exposure. Using his skills, we handle Federal Estate Tax matters. We also ensure that clients are protected from tax consequences involving New Jersey inheritance tax, New Jersey estate tax, and state and federal income taxes. We advise clients about how the value and type of property in their estates affect the tax ramifications of their estates.

Our probate lawyer can assist with the probate of the estate and asset transfer to heirs as efficiently as possible after death. We shepherd the will through the probate process, which involves submitting it to the court to determine its validity. We also handle will contests involving allegations of undue influence or issues of testator competency.

The probate process can be very difficult and time consuming.  Having an experienced attorney to assist you will make the process move more smoothly and efficiently.  The role of an Executor can be stressful, as you have a lot of responsibilities.  By hiring an experienced attorney, you will be ensured that the estate will be handled properly.  An Executor must gather the assets of the deceased, pay all of the estate expenses, file the correct tax returns and account to the heirs for his or her actions. The attorneys at Cosner Law Group ensure that the estate administration proceeds correctly and that the Executor has no liability to the heirs when the estate is complete.
