The Law Offices of Januszewski, McQuillan and DeNigris has been handling all aspects of trusts and estates issues for clients throughout Connecticut for more than 50 years. Whether planning the care of your family upon your death or guiding you through the probate process as you mourn the loss of a loved one, we can help you with:

  • Estate planning

Estate planning

Our attorneys advise you on the best estate planning approach for you. We thoroughly analyze your estate and strategize the best means of:

  • Transferring your assets
  • Minimizing taxes
  • Establishing guardianship for your children
  • Caring for your pets
  • Supporting personal philanthropic causes
  • Protecting your family

We draft a will that reflects your desires and establish living trusts if they advance your individual needs and your estate planning goals.

Probate

Probate typically accompanies a situation involving painful emotional loss. Our attorneys can ease the stress of probating your loved one’s estate.  We assist executors in all steps of the complex process of probating a will in a Connecticut probate court, including:

  • Creating a plan of action to probate the estate fairly and expeditiously
  • Filing the will with the Connecticut probate court
  • Closing and opening bank accounts
  • Transferring assets from the deceased to the estate
  • Assessing the value of property
  • Paying taxes and other debts
  • Locating beneficiaries
  • Hiring professionals and experts when necessary

Contested wills

The stress of a contested will can compound the pain of losing a loved one. When disputes arise, our attorneys’ composed courtroom demeanor can calm the emotionally charged process of challenging an invalid will or defending a valid will against erroneous claims made by unhappy beneficiaries. If you choose to preserve amiable family relationships, we skillfully mediate disputes to reach just, equitable resolutions with your loved ones. When necessary, we assertively defend your beneficiary rights within Connecticut probate courts.
