Helping Beneficiaries Assert Their Rights

A beneficiary of a will or trust has certain legal rights, including the right to receive what is provided by the will or trust. In some cases, executors and trustees do not comply with those provisions, either by omission or commission. These cases may call for the intervention of an experienced attorney.

If you believe that your rights as a beneficiary were violated or you are unclear about what your rights are, we can assist you. At our firm, we have been handling sensitive estate matters since 1991. We proudly serve clients throughout New Jersey and across the greater Philadelphia metro area.
