    Before drafting an expensive trust you probably won’t need talk to these attorneys. After being told by several other lawyers how we needed to form a trust Jason and Matt explained to us why we did not need one. They saved our family money and we thank them for that. Reputable attorneys that will level with you that I will recommend … More to anyone.

    Our distant relative died in NYC. Our family is all out of state. Sizeable inheritance and when we learned it was all going to go to the State of New York if we didn’t act fast we hired the best attorneys in the business.
    These NY estate lawyers worked tirelessly piecing the research together to win our case at trial. This estate
    … More changed our lives for the better and speaking on behalf of the entire family we would not have seen a nickel if not for Jason.
    Our family recommends Jason and Matt wholeheartedly, when you need the best call them.

    When our aunt passed leaving behind a will members of our family began the process to control the estate knowing they were not in her will. We did not even know this could happen.
    We did not mess around and went straight to the best estate lawyers in NY and they did not disappoint . Jason and Matt were prepared for every possible manuever.
    … More When we filed the will as expected these unsavory characters objected. Once again Jason and Matt defeated them in short order.
    In the end I am confident we could not have succeeded like we did without our A team of expert legal professionals on our side. I cant thank them enough these attorneys changed our lives.

    When our mother passed away our estranged brother attempted for lack of a better word steal our inheritance. We put our faith and trust in Jason and Matt and it paid off. My brother’s case was quickly dealt with and we received exactly what out parents intended. If we went with any other attorneys we would have been in trouble. … More Now my children’s financial future is secure and we owe it to these skilled professionals.

    I live in Denmark and have family in the states. We had an unfortunate loss to our family and thankfully Jason and his team handled everything for us. Most of didn’t even have to leave home and everything was handled even from a great distance. We appreciate everything you have done for us and our family. I can’t imagine … More having anyone else handle issues like this for us.

    Very lucky to find such great attorneys to handle our estate. My family is entirely out of state and we needed an experienced attorney to handle our NY kinship case. Jason Stern and Matthew Hunter treated us with nothing but respect and patience, warmly explaining each step of the proceeding to us in terms we understood. Our kinship … More case was a bit more difficult than most because we had lost touch with members of the family years ago. Jason and Matt did not disappoint and did not give up until they successfully recovered the estate for us. Definitely attorneys you can trust and turn to with your case.

    When I used to think of the word attorney the words integrity, honesty, helpfulness and compassion have never really come to mind. But after finding myself in a legal estate nightmare I found my way to Jason and Matt and all of that changed. Not only did they fix the estate and get everyone their share of the inheritance but they did … More it in a way that made us feel informed and protected every step fo the way. You do not have to be afraid of the law or going to court when you have the right people behind you and Jason and Matt are the right attorneys for the job.

    We never realized how good it was to have a great attorney on your side until we needed one. Oh boy did we need one after our parents passed. Our mother made the mistake of making our sister in charge of her estate. Almost a year after she passed our sister still refused to tell us anything about the inheritance. Fortunately we found … More our way to Mr. Stern and he and his partner Matt went right to work on the situation. Once these attorneys dug in they would not stop until we received every penny owed. More importantly Mr. Stern gave this family the closure we needed to move on with our lives. Great attorneys who care.

    If you are looking for estate attorneys to handle your case these are the ones you want. They helped our family with our issue when someone tried contesting the estate. They made fast work of the objecting party and were able to probate the will quickly so that we could all receive our inheritance. The lawyers at this firm are highly … More capable, professional and very trustworthy.

    It is really nice to know attorneys like these exist. Mr. Stern was generous with his time, kind, unbelievably patient and most of all results driven. Our loved one’s passing unfortunately created a storm of estate litigation which at times seemed hopeless with no end in sight. However Mr. Stern was uncompromising in his representation … More of our family’s interests. At the end of the day everything worked out and we were all better for it. Instead of creating problems Mr. Stern did his best to solve them. Could not be more impressed.

    For the first time in my life I found myself in need of a really good estate lawyer. Without ever having any contact with the legal system I was in trouble. Either my estate lawyer was going to fight for me in court to get a meaningful result otherwise I was going to get bupkis as they say.
    Jason put my mind at ease quickly. He
