Managing An Estate After Death

After the death of a loved one, you may be responsible for the administration of their estate. If you were named the personal representative or executor, it is important to have a clear understanding of your rights as well as your personal obligations in managing an estate. At Piro Zinna Cifelli Paris & Genitempo LLC in Nutley, New Jersey, our firm is committed to helping individuals and families manage the details of estate administration while protecting their personal interests preventing liability.

Attorney Michelle E. Smith will take a strategic and informed approach in handling your case. Our firm represents executors, personal representatives and administrators to assist with the task of settling the estate of a family member or loved one. We also represent beneficiaries and other parties involved in will contests and estate-related litigation. Commonly, our role is to represent or advise both in-state and out-of-state personal representatives who are administering estates in New Jersey or who are involved in New Jersey probate matters.

What We Do

  • Inventory assets, debts and liabilities

Counsel And Advocacy At Every Stage

Our attorneys understand how difficult and complex these cases can become. We will take on all of the burdens and provide you with reliable, trusted counsel so that you can protect your personal interests.
