At Shapiro Croland, we are the top choice of clients and other attorneys for representation involving estate disputes such as contested wills, contested trusts, closely held business disputes involving a partner or shareholder's estate, disputes over family heirlooms and valued collectibles, actions to compel an accounting of an estate, and actions to remove fiduciaries on grouns of fraud, neglect, conflict of interest, and malfeasance.
Our New Jersey probate litigation attorneys draw on our collective 40+ years of business law, contract law, real estate law, and trial practice in the Superior Court of New Jersey.
A Law Firm founded on Preparation and Attention to Detail
Several of our firm's lawyers had the distinction of serving as a judicial law clerk for prominent judges of the Superior Court of New Jersey. This insight into the courtroom from behind the scenes enabled the partners to gain a unique perspective that continues to serve as the firm's foundation to this very day - thorough preparation and preparedness both outside and inside the courtroom.
Our job is to make sure the judge understands your story so that when we step into the courtroom we are aleady one step ahead of the game.
We believe in frequent and open communication to keep our clients informed of the status of their matter or litigation. Phone calls and emails are promptly responded to. You call to speak to a lawyer then you will speak with a lawyer, not a secretary or lower level support staff. The attorneys assigned to your case will be familiar with all the necessary details.
