About Me

I am the Managing Attorney of Shah & Associate's P.C., a service-oriented firm dedicated to Helping to Protect & Preserve what matters most: Your Family, Your Business & Your Legacy.


 


Our practice on all aspects of Estate Planning, Elder Law &  Business Law. My clients range from families to established corporations and limited liability companies, to individual entrepreneurs, and start-up ventures.

The people I help value my diverse training and expertise across the business, real estate and wealth-planning disciplines. I use my skill setto foresee and implement business-succession techniques for my corporate & individual clients as they initiate different stages of their business ventures. I strive to provide relevant advice for asset-protection strategies for business & real estate investors so their actions do not jeopardize their family’s wealth. For these reasons, I have been entrusted in a General Counsel capacity for my corporate clients and in a Family Attorney role for individual clients.


 


I live in Monroe Township, NJ with my wife and 2 school age children.
