Free Seminar On Wills and Estate Planning
This Thursday, October 29th

NEW JERSEY – As a public service, the New Jersey State Bar Foundation presents a free public seminar on wills and estate planning on Thursday, October 29, 2015, 1-4 p.m. at the New Jersey Law Center, One Constitution Square off Ryders Lane in New Brunswick. The seminar is presented as part of the American Bar Association’s seventh annual national celebration of Pro Bono Week, October 25-31, during which local attorneys give back to the community.

The program will consist of two parts: an informational discussion from 1-2:30 p.m. conducted by two guest speaker attorneys, followed by an opportunity for attendees to meet one-to-one from 2:30-4 p.m. with an attorney to discuss matters of individual concern. Please note that the latter segment is an informal question-and-answer session and does not constitute formal legal advice.

Topics of discussion in the first segment will likely include wills and trusts, gift and tax planning, New Jersey probate procedures, power of attorney, living wills, federal and New Jersey estate tax, New Jersey inheritance tax and the use of a revocable or living trust.

The guest speakers are Brian Reynolds, an attorney with the Murray Hill law firm of Mantell, Prince & Reynolds, P.C.; and Kinjal Desai, an attorney with Day Pitney, LLP, in Parsippany.

Also participating are attorneys Mark R. Friedman of Friedman Law, Bridgewater; and Brian Selvin of Greenbaum, Rowe, Smith & Davis LLP, Woodbridge.

The seminar is free and open to the public; however, advance registration is required. To register, visit the Foundation online at or call 1-800-FREE-LAW. The program is made possible by funding from the IOLTA Fund of the Bar of New Jersey.
