Everyone knows someone who has died, but not everyone knows how to manage that person’s assets and estate when they die. For attorneys, guiding clients through the complexities of estate administration - which can take many years in some cases - requires compassion as well as a deep understanding of the process. This course, taught by Jordan Wassel of Schenk, Price, and King, will provide insight into the basics of New Jersey estate administration, including a review of the administrative tasks involved, common ways they can be mishandled, and best practices, and give participants a solid foundational understanding of the process.
