Celebrating Over 50 Years of Service

Wills and Trusts

We review with our clients the issues pertaining to the needs of their spouse, children, and other heirs and we give guidance to our clients on the best means to address their concerns in these areas.

We discuss with our clients their insurance needs, and the disposition of their pensions, 401K plans, Roth IRAs, traditional IRAs, and other assets. We review with our clients the tax consequences of their estate plan.

We discuss with our clients the titling of their assets such as their homes, bank accounts, automobiles and stocks, bonds, or other investments that they may own. 

Once our client’s estate plan has been finalized we prepare the documents to implement the estate plan. These documents may be simple wills or more complex instruments such as trusts to take effect during our client’s life time or trusts to be included in his or her will. 

Powers of Attorney and Heath Care Directives or Living Wills

There are considerations other than death planning. We review with our clients the benefits of living wills, also known as health care directives, and address whether our client desires life support should a medical catastrophe occur and address who should make decisions regarding health care for our client when he or she is unable to do so.  

Similarly, we discuss with our clients the benefits of a power of attorney to enable the management of one’s affairs should one become incapacitated and unable to do so.

Probate and Administration

After a person’s death we handle probate matters and give guidance to one’s spouse, children, and other heirs in the transfer of assets in accordance with one’s Will. There are debt issues and tax issues to be addressed. There are insurance policies to be collected and other assets to be inventoried. There are pension plans, annuities, and other post death benefits that need to be reviewed and resolved.

Testimonials

I retained attorney Steve Loewenthal to handle my personal injury case. Prior to our consultation, I was nervous  and still  unsure about what to do. Steve explained  the law, my options, and addressed all my questions or concerns about going forward. He’s an extremely knowledgeable attorney  who acts in a professional, respectful, and kind demeanor. He is direct and honest, does not make any ridiculous promises, or show any sign of unethical behavior.  Before  the depositions,  he explained the process, took the time to calm my concerns/fears, but most importantly, instructed me to tell the truth. I am aware of some of the negative stereotypes assumed about personal injury attorneys; however, Steve exhibits NONE of these negative qualities.

If you are a sports fan, you will love his office! His has an amazing assistant who was also very helpful! I did not call often but when I did, she knew who I was and exchanged pleasantries. With integrity and expertise, Steve succeeded in effectively handling my case. I do not share my experiences often; but in this case, Steve Loewenthal definitely earned my trust, respect, and my recommendation!

Driver, Client of Sharon L. Freeman, Esq.

Mr. Loewenthal represented me in a civil case. From the initial consultation to the settlement, Steve provided the most professional, knowledgeable and considerate level of service. Steve kept me informed every step of the way and took his time to explain each new development in the case.

Steve’s experience gave me confidence from the outset the case would be handled with expertise. He was able to coordinate between all parties involved and his negotiating skills resulted in a most favorable outcome. His staff was a pleasure to deal with and were very accommodating. Steve and his office went above and beyond and he comes with my highest recommendation. Thank You, Steve, for everything you did in handling my case.

Banker, Client of Sharon L. Freeman, Esq.

Mr. Loewenthal took my automobile personal injury case after 2 other law firms turned me down because of car insurance reasons that couldn’t get me a settlement. In NJ, you only have 2 years after your date of accident to pursue personal injury damage. I went to Mr. Loewenthal with my case close to 3 months before the 2 year deadline to sue. He walked me through everything that was going to happen, assured me that we have a case and worked hard on my case and met the deadline to sue. When Mr. Loewenthal called me withe settlement number, I almost fell off of my chair. He got me way more than I thought was possible, for I thought I was getting nothing because of the other lawyers turning my case down. Needless to say, Mr. Loewenthal is a “Jackpot!” lawyer and I recommend him 101% to anyone who wants a real lawyer.
