Since every case is unique, to effectively communicate your position Peter J. Fiorella, III and Richard G. Schwind will utilize their skills developed through more than 30 years of public service as members of the Surrogate’s Court staff where on a daily basis they met “face-to-face” with attorneys and members of the public to resolve various estate, trust, real estate, guardianship and wrongful death preliminary issues as well as conduct hundreds of pretrial hearings to resolve disputed issues. And, with the courtroom trial experience of Peter J. Fiorella, our practice has been further enhanced in regard to litigated issues if judicial resolution is necessary.

We have further expanded our practice to include advanced estate planning to assist our clients.  Attorney Ruth P. George will utilize her skills of more than 15 years of experience in helping you and families with elderly parents through the process of developing a lifetime trust, individual retirement account distributions, and real estate life use transfers to eliminate the need for probate, minimize estate tax and reduce Medicaid ineligibility.

Ms. George’s comprehensive knowledge of real estate transactions, after working with many real estate agents and brokers during her career, will assist you in completing the sale and/or purchase of real property by ensuring prompt completion of transactions with a successful and timely closing.
