COMMERCIAL / ESTATES LITIGATION
Commercial Litigation Lawyers
Commercial litigation encompasses every type of dispute that can arise in a business context. Whether a large or small business is involved, it is important that the business owner be aware of the various laws and regulations affecting your business.
It is especially critical to be aware of the laws when a claim is brought against a business by a consumer. New Jersey enacted the Consumer Fraud Act, which provides for a business who violates it to pay to the consumer “treble damages,” or three times the actual damages incurred, plus attorneys’ fees.
Even a seemingly innocent violation of this law can lead to disastrous consequences for a business; thus it is extremely important that businesses be properly counseled in how to deal with the general public.

Estate Litigation Attorneys
Estate litigation refers to disputes that arise from the administration of a deceased person’s estate. During this process, any person having a claim against the estate is given the opportunity to file a claim with the Court. The Executor or Administrator of the estate can approve the claim, paying it out of the estate funds. However, sometimes the Executor or Administrator may dispute the claim and litigation may arise regarding its validity.
Additionally, estate litigation often takes the form of a Will contest. A Will contest is a formal objection to the validity of a Will on the basis that the Will does not reflect the intent of the person making the Will, or someone may argue that the Testator lacked the requisite mental capacity to make the Will, that the Testator was unduly influenced in the making of the Will, or even that the Will itself is a forgery. Our attorneys have experience in representing either side of such contests.
Lastly, sometimes a representative of an estate, an Executor or Administrator, will not move ahead to conclude the estate in a timely fashion. In these cases, our attorneys can apply to the Court to force the estate representative to complete the estate, or be replaced by an individual who will conclude the estate honestly and quickly.
While it is true that most estates will go through the probate process without any problems; however, in in the event of a dispute, it is critical to have an attorney experienced in estate litigation on your side.
