At the Law Offices of Thomas J. Smith, we concentrate on the business transactional, asset protection, and estate planning needs of individuals, families, and closely-held businesses. Our firm is dedicated to providing unique and creative solutions to the complex goals faced by our clients, whether that may involve preparing a Will or a trust agreement, developing a sound business succession strategy, or addressing a complex estate tax matter.
What is referred to as, "Estate Planning" is really a combination of business law, tax law, retirement planning, wills and trust planning, asset protection planning, elder law, and estate administration. What sets our firm apart from those that occasionally "dabble" in this field is that we have the experience and educational background to combine these areas of the law to reach a comprehensive solution to your needs.
For example, it would be of little benefit to you and your family if the attorney that prepared your Will wasn't familiar with the lastest developments in estate tax law, or the potential income tax consequences of leaving your IRA or 401(k) to your beneficiaries, or how asset protection planning might have saved you thousands of dollars.
With our ever-changing tax and estate laws, it is more important than ever to work with an attorney who understands your goals and how to implement them successfully. We are available to serve clients throughout Northern New Jersey and New York.
If we can be of assistance to you, please contact our office at (973) 541-7000 to schedule a consultation.
