Drawing The Blueprint For Your Legacy
An estate plan is a blueprint that shows how your assets should be passed on for the benefit of your children and loved ones. Just as you, your family and your vision for the future are one of a kind, so too should be your estate plan.
At the law offices of Lanza & Lanza in Flemington, our attorneys create customized estate plans. Rather than simply filling out a boilerplate form, our estate planning services begin with us getting to know your situation. We will learn about you and your family. We will explore your assets and get to know how you would like them to pass on. Only when we have this information we can create an estate plan that is truly right for you.

With more than 40 years of legal experience, we are familiar with the various estate planning tools and skilled at determining the ones that are most appropriate for achieving your goals. Among the estate planning tools we use are:

Whether your goal is to preserve the family home or your estate encompasses real property throughout New Jersey, our lawyers will find the right mix of estate planning tools for you. We can address issues like probate avoidance, inheritance taxes and more with estate plans that are clearly written and designed to minimize the risk of estate disputes.
Estate Planning Is Not Just About Assets
When people think about estate planning, they often think only about how their assets will pass on to the next generation. However, estate planning can address much more than that. A strong estate plan can provide guidance to your loved ones about what to do in the event of incapacity. It can provide instructions about how you want to be cared for and how you want your financial affairs handled. Not only is this important for your own peace of mind, it can prevent a wide range of disputes that may arise between family members who, without clear instructions, may all have their own idea of what is best for you.
