Certainly! Though same-sex marriage is accepted law, there are still concerns unique to the LGBT community. Historical prejudice and existing hostility both political and familial adds a layer of complication other couples need not address. Please read my article about LGBT Estate Planning.
If you die without a Will, you are “Intestate.” If you have no Estate Plan, then your assets pass under New Jersey’s plan. A Will allows you to craft a plan that reflects your real wishes. The Intestacy Rules do not take your wishes into consideration. For more, read our article that addresses New Jersey Intestacy.
A Camden County Probate Attorney can charge what the court determines a “reasonable fee,” read our article on Probate Attorney Fees.
Unlike neighboring Pennsylvania, the answer can be simple. The New Jersey legislature has enacted a series of statutes detailing an acceptable Camden County executor fee for an average estate when the testator has not specified otherwise. Keep in mind that, for drawn out, or complex estates, an executor may be entitled to greater compensation.” For more information read our article on Executors Fees.
The Trust document often states the Trustee’s fee, which is often “reasonable.” If however, the grantor has failed to specify the compensation, the New Jersey legislature has provided for a statutory fee schedule. However, this does not apply to corporate fiduciaries. For more information, read our article on Camden County Trustee Fees.
New Jersey has adopted the same fee schedule for guardians and trustees. The bifurcated approach that allows a guardian to take a percentage based fee on any income received during the year, and another percentage based on the principal. For more details, read our article about Guardianship Fees.

Klenk Law is an exceptional practice. Their fine lawyers and staff team up to produce excellent results for their clients. They excel at explaining the often cryptic laws and policies that govern estate planning right down to the complexities of the various "trust" frameworks. Peter himself manages each client together with his great team, and he has a rare quality to be both a walking encyclopedia of planning minutia and also one of the most likable lawyers I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. He is truly generous in intellect and in his personal approach to getting the "big picture" for complex family structures. I trust him implicitly to help me make the right choices for the future. In short, Klenk Law is a gem of a firm.
Peter and his staff are very responsive and always willing to help my clients and in a cost efficient manner.
Affable...yet surprisingly cerebral estate planning atty. High marks all the way around.
Peter has done our family's trust and estate work since our children were born. He is not only extremely knowledgeable and honest, but makes sure that our arrangements remain current with the changing legal landscape. I would give him my highest recommendation as a professional in his field.
Professional, cheerful, thorough and fast. Peter responded to my request for a consultation right away, and within just a few days my last will and living will were done. Rates are standard.
