Legal Services

Personal

Wills/Estates

The issues surrounding estate planning are varied. Our primary goal is to protect the interests of the living after a loved one has passed. We work with our clients in life to take any worry or confusion out of the business and financial matters that are linked with the end of life. Ultimately, this is something that everyone will have to deal with - most often, doing so "before" makes life easier on the survivors. If you're trying to decide on the next right step to take, give us a call at 732.382.7373.

Real Estate/Foreclosures

We represent owners in foreclosure, workouts and mortgage lending/refinancing. No matter your circumstances, we will analyze the situation and identify the actions available to you. Once the objective is agreed, we will work strategically and aggressively to help you get the outcome you're looking for.

A struggling economy has compromised a lot of hard working people's financial lives. Most homeowners want to stay in their homes and avoid foreclosure. We have the experience and know-how to proactively to try to protect you from being victimized by foreclosure. Let us help you.

We will walk you through your options so you can make the right decision for you. For some, bankruptcy is the right thing to do, but for others there may be a simpler solution. We will work with you to understand your situation and goals - and help you through the entire process. To find out more about your options for personal financial reorganization, please call us at 732.382.7373

Elder Law & Guardianship

The practice of Elder Law relies heavily on planning: Planning for different possibilities around living environment, independence, and health care. The planning requires the participation of the client as well as the client's family - of blood or choice. We help our clients and their families pull together all of the different pieces of government benefits, estate planning, asset preservation, housing and care-giving options.

We have professional as well as personal experience in this work. Growing older can be challenging. We begin to lose our friends, spouses and acquaintances. As our own mortality comes into focus we are faced with difficult choices and stark realities.

Allow us to help you sort through the collection of issues and options as you are working through your own life-plan or the life-plan of someone you hold dear. We know what you're going through. Please don't hesitate to call us at 732.382.7373.

Personal Injury

When someone is injured or killed because of the negligence of another, even if the harm was not intended, often the only recourse is to work through the legal system. In those cases, you need a law firm that will fight for your rights and fairly represent you in court. At Kochanski, Baron & Galfy, that's exactly what we do.

Insurance companies rarely base their offers on your particular case, but on the data collected from similar instances of injuries like yours. Reaching a "fair settlement" requires the injured party's story to be told fully and effectively. That's what we do - we represent your interests and your story - so that all of the facts of the case come out. This gives you the best possible opportunity for personal justice and appropriate financial compensation.

For more information about personal injury cases, please call us at 732.382.7373

Workman's Compensation

Anyone injured on the job should immediately consult an experienced attorney. Too often we see insurance companies take advantage of people who are injured simply because they didn't know any better. Most people aren't aware of their rights when they are injured at work. Not having all of the information can cost you dearly in the long run. We will help you understand the process and facilitate any aspects that you do not understand or are unable to handle because of your injury.

If you or someone you know has been injured at work and is not getting the kind of attention warranted, please call us at 732.382.7373.

Social Security/Disability

At the moment that you need Social Security benefits, there's a lot to think about. Either you're suffering after a significant injury or perhaps grieving a great loss. While you are never required to be represented by an attorney, the odds of being approved for benefits are much better when you work with an attorney to prepare the filing and/or the appeal.

We objectively evaluate the circumstances of your case, and then build the strongest possible argument for your cause. Our experience and reputation for thoroughness have helped us to secure benefits without our clients having to attend a hearing.

If you have questions about your particular situation, please give us a call at ?732.382.7373.

Corporate Restructuring/Debt Reorganization

Whether you're very successful or struggling in your business, corporate reorganization may be necessary to get the most out of the company you have. We work with our corporate clients to envision the best possible outcome and move toward that vision with respect and integrity.

Because corporate bankruptcy (Chapter 11) is one of the most complex areas of law, companies need to bring in experts who can help them maneuver through the process. If the company has assets or real estate, attorneys can help to preserve these assets. Once the company files Chapter 11, the court will administer protection from creditors. However, the filing is complicated, and if not executed properly, the company remains open to further action from creditors.

We can help to arrange for debt adjustment and/or repayment. We can also help to reorganize the debts so that the payments are not as burdensome to the business. Bankruptcy is a serious decision - and we can help you determine if it's the right one for you. Please call us at 732.382.7373.
