East Brunswick Counselors Helping Clients Protect What Matters Most

An estate plan allows anyone with assets or property they want to pass on to specific beneficiaries to control how their estate will be handled if they become incapacitated. These plans include specific instructions for medical care and finances, outlined by a collection of legally binding documents. The types of assets protected by most estate plans include vehicles, stocks, life insurance policies, bank accounts, and pensions.

If you are looking to create an estate plan to protect your assets and build a plan for their distribution once you’ve passed on, Rozin | Golinder Law can help. Our estate planning attorneys in New Brunswick will work with you to create a plan that fits your needs and prevents your assets from being lost to those acting in bad faith.

Elements of an Estate Plan

Everyone is in a different position financially and has different wishes for their assets and property. However, any good estate plan will include most of the following elements:

  • Will: A will is a document created by a person and their attorney to direct who will receive their property at the time of their death. A will also formally appoints someone to carry these wishes out, known as an executor. Anyone with minor children can name a person to become the children’s guardian should they pass away before their children reach 18 years of age.
  • Trust: A trust is a legally binding arrangement that allows a trustee to hold the title of another person’s property, that person being called the beneficiary. Trusts allow people to avoid probate and pass property on to specific people with peace of mind.
  • Power of attorney: Anyone creating an estate plan should appoint a power of attorney to act in their place if they become incapacitated. A power of attorney can help take care of financial affairs and represent someone in court on their behalf.
  • Medical plans: An estate plan should include medical directives for people to follow if the owner of the estate becomes incapacitated. This includes items such as a healthcare proxy, medical instructions, and healthcare power of attorney. This allows someone to decide who will make medical decisions on their behalf if they are in a position where they cannot do so themselves.
  • Beneficiaries: Anyone in the process of creating an estate plan should ensure that their health insurance plan and retirement plan are updated with accurate beneficiaries listed. Without a beneficiary named, the benefits from these plans may be given to someone chosen by the courts.

Real Reviews From Previous Clients

  • Successful Relocation

    “Elizabeth Rozin-Golinder successfully represented my wife on a couple of occasions. Once was for child custody and the most recent was for child relocation, which required a plenary hearing. Elizabeth was very easy to communicate with in person, over the phone and through email. She worked very diligently to ensure that each case was aggressively presented and won. I highly recommend Elizabeth to anyone in need of a top notch family attorney.”

  • Amazing Lawyer!!!

    “Elizabeth was amazing from the very beginning of my divorce process. She not only was clear and prompt in all communication, but also connected with me on a personal level where I felt very comfortable going into all details of my divorce and the reasons why I was getting divorced. I whole heartily recommend her and her team. Not only did she help me through the process, but did so within 4 months! I met her in March and was divorced by June! Thank you so much Liz, you are truly an exceptional lawyer!!”

  • Exceptional Attorney

    “Elizabeth has been representing our family for over a year now in a very sad and complicated custody case that involves the protection of my step daugter. It was a case where the original custody was out of another state. From the day we retained her she's been a godsend. Her motions and arguments reflect the personal interest she takes in every client. She's direct, honest, and very realistic. She's taken us through the temporary emergency custody process...the permanent custody process...and now the child support and contested custody process. She was instrumental in getting the jurisdiction of the child's custody granted to NJ. She has always prepared us for the worst yet we walked out with what we needed to happen each and every time. She's still fighting for this child through this last phase. Elizabeth is a true child advocate it's been apparent since day one. You never know what judges are going to decide but Elizabeth knows the laws, she knows the court room game, she develops a strategy and in my family's eyes she's a top notch attorney. I know one day soon she will climb to the ranks of one of the most powerful family attorneys in this state if she isn't alreay there. She's aggressive, smart, honest and a true talent at what she does.”

  • Forever Grateful

    “Professional and absolutely down to earth, Mrs Rosin-Golinder and her knowledgeable staff listened to my needs and crafted a prenuptial agreement that will not only act as a safety net for my business but as piece of mind if thing don’t go as planned. With my first marriage around the corner, my first child on the way and preparing for my first mobilization , it was an amazing feeling to have something I feared and was very very uncertain of, turn out for the best. Thank you is most certainly an understatement but for the sake of expression..... THANK YOU. You definitely have a client for life. Two thumbs up LIZ!!!”

  • Short, Sweet and Thankful

    “All I have to say is this, Elizabeth is an exceptional Lawyer, and in the field of Law, I can tell you she is a game-changer, I came to her in dire need to help me obtain my Daughter through emergency circumstances, the timing was urgent, and in a matter of hours she was able to accomplish custody of my daughter, she had only 2 hours to prepare for our hearing. That's all she needed, as sharp as she is, surprised it took her that long, Ha. This is a person that reminded me that there is a lot of good in this world. If anyone were to read this, I want to assure you that she will exhaust every opportunity and resource to get the job done accordingly. I would highly, HIGHLY, recommend her to anyone in need of Professional. Job Well Done Elizabeth, Zoë and I are very thankful.”
