The Paton Law Firm, Estate Planning Lawyers in Bergen County
Kimberly A. Paton and her team of support staff are committed to finding custom solutions to your legal challenges and serving your long-term legal needs. We deliver timely and cost-effective legal solutions to help you meet your long-term goals and objectives. We offer the following types of legal services:
Legal counsel and conflict resolution—just short of litigation
In our adversarial legal system, most lawyers engage in a war of words. Kimberly Paton is different. She works with you to develop clearly stated estate plans and contracts. She works with you through the process of estate administration. If a contract fails to protect you or your business from liability, she works with you and the other party to reach a compromise. She takes pride in her reputation as a dealmaker, not a deal-breaker. Kimberly Paton believes that litigation is an absolute last resort. Courtroom trials are often not worth the damage to your reputation or the monetary cost. She exhausts every available avenue of compromise before referring you to a qualified litigator. In most cases, compromise is possible when the issues underlying the problem get sorted out.
A pebble dropped into a pond makes waves
This is our client service philosophy. We see every transaction as a pebble that has long-term effects on our client relationships. This is why we take a personal interest in every case and visit our clients at home or in their offices, no matter how big or small the transaction. We will never turn down a job because the transaction is too small, but we will let you know when an attorney is unnecessary. Our initial consultations are completely free and our fees are competitive because we are careful about our overhead costs. We pass these savings on to clients. Honesty. Integrity. This is what sets us apart.
Valued members of your support network
Our firm is unique in the fact that we have a system of follow-ups in place to ensure that your legal needs are met quickly and cost-efficiently. We often consult with an external network of experts—from tax professionals to real estate appraisers—to ensure that our clients achieve the best possible outcomes. This is how we deliver value to clients and build lasting relationships within our community.
