The university that inherited the companion painting done by Warhol initiated a probate dispute against O'Neal claiming it was supposed to inherit both paintings.

Will intended beneficiaries recieve assets of New Jersey estate?

When it comes to estate planning, many New Jersey residents already know that wills and/or trusts are important documents for transferring assets upon death.

New Jersey pet owners have the ability to provide for their pets in the aftermath of the owner's death.

New Jersey estate planning: Passing on the family business
