Looking at the Big Picture

Some trusts are used as part of the probate process. Trusts are often a useful tool as part of your estate plan. It can direct who should inherit, name the trustee and often will contain other important provisions. At Greenberg & Lanz, we assist clients with administering various trusts, including:

  • Irrevocable/revocable trusts
  • Insurance trusts

Our attorneys understand that in this rapidly evolving and challenging economic and investment environment, close attention must be devoted to this. You can count on us for experience and forward thinking when you and your family need it most.

Steven Morey Greenberg has been appointed by the Court to act as Trustee of various trusts and he has also been retained privately by clients in many instances to serve as trustee. The trusts range in size from relatively modest assets to assets valued at millions of dollars.

New Jersey Special Needs Trust Lawyers

Representative Case: For approximately 10 years, attorney Steven Morey Greenberg has served as court-appointed trustee for a developmentally disabled adult who has no close family and lives in a group home. Mr. Greenberg was originally appointed to protect this person's interests in litigation with another family member, but he now, in effect, serves as this person's family, coordinating her continued eligibility for governmental assistance and all of her care and needs. He manages this person's modest sized special needs trust to provide supplementary needs.
