New Jersey Estate Tax Planning

New Jersey Estate Tax Planning Lawyer

Upon death, the state of New Jersey imposes an estate tax on property that exceeds a total value of $2 Million. When working through estate planning matters, a lawyer who is experienced in asset protection issues can help you avoid or minimize this tax as much as possible.

Nicholas A. Giuditta III, Attorney at Law, provides reliable estate tax advice. We provide honest and timely advice that is tailored to your needs. We can help you preserve your assets and protect heirs from the burdens of New Jersey estate taxes, often through the creation of trusts.

Westfield Credit Shelter Trust Attorney

Married couples seeking to protect their assets and minimize estate tax implications can do so with the help of a credit shelter trust. Through a credit shelter trust, the surviving spouse retains the right to use trust funds for health, education, maintenance and support within his or her lifetime. Upon the surviving spouse’s death, assets pass to the married couple’s children exempt from any New Jersey estate taxes.

Our law firm was founded by estate attorney Nicholas Giuditta. If you are wondering if a credit shelter trust might be right for your situation, he can provide personalized and no nonsense advice to help you make an informed decision. If you decide a credit shelter trust is right for you, he will work diligently and efficiently on the necessary legal documentation.

Client Testimonials

5 Star RatingI had no idea estate planning was so important until my mom was diagnosed with cancer and had 6 weeks to live. A neighbor recommended Nicholas Giuditta. The first phone call and meeting sealed the deal. His compassion, understanding, and willingness to guide me thru this process when time was of the essence lifted a large burden off of my shoulders. Estate planning at any time is overwhelming but Nick was there with professional guidance and a shoulder to lean on every step of the way. He was always willing to answer any questions, give legal advice, and assist in handling a lot of family drama. I was so pleased with Nick’s services, that my husband and I actually did ‘our’ estate planning with Nick. I would highly recommend Nicholas Giuditta! You not only receive the best professional help but also make a friend in the process!
