Client
Alan Augulis demonstrated his knowledge in the establishment of a living trust for us. We felt very comfortable in the advice provided and the trust that was created for us, as well as protections provided for our children in the future. A Legacy Wealth Planning Portfolio was provided that explains everything in detail.

Best known attorney in his field
I contacted different Estate attorneys in NY and NJ and sure that Mr Augulis is the most knowledgeable and experienced among them. I was 100% satisfied with that attorney and his staff. He was very efficient, extremely helpful, very patient and very pleasant. Mr Augulis and his associates helped me to understand everything concerning Will, Estate Planning, Trusts, Inheritance and possible Taxes. Some topics were discussed and explained not once until I understood all little details of the topic. I strongly recommend him for somebody’s needs. Excellent attorney and perfect choice.

helpful in organizing
I was pleased with the service and the ease with which I was able to organize my information. The ability to organize was due, in large part, to the documents sent for my input. It was a surprisingly easy process.

Excellence and knowledge
We visited this firm regarding my parents welfare in regards to medical and power of attorney. The staff was so very knowledgeable and professional we came back to do a living trust. Again, everything was handled professionally. Mr. Augulis explained so much that we were unaware of; we were lucky to have him and his staff handle our living trust. No question was left unanswered. I would recommend the Augulis Law firm to anyone looking for information regarding trusts and elder care. They clearly exceeded our expectations.

Estate planning and all related legal document
I attended Mr. Augulis's seminar at Pines in Edison. I was impressed. I was looking for estate planing, will, power of attorney etc for long time. I have talked with lot of attorneys, most of them asked me what document I need. I had no idea. I made an appointment with Mr. Augulis office. He and his staff are extremely knowledgeable. They were able to educate me and advise me tremendously. Created all needed wonderful documents for my family. It took couple of months to complete whole process but I felt that it was done right. When we left, me and my wife felt safe and secure in our choice of attorney and the protections we have set up for our family. I have recommended many of my friends to see Alan before they select someone else. I am sure when time comes his office will execute my plan. I hope that day, does not come soon.However, I am ready when it does.

GREAT ESTATE LAWYER
My mom used Mr. Augulis for her estate planning. When my mom died, a friend convinced me to engage a major law firm that she had used to handle the estate. What a mistake! Within 6 weeks of their handling her estate, the bills were over $50000! I was being overbilled by two lawyers on the case, both of whom were billing at over $500 an hour with the partner billing for "attention to detail" on a daily basis for over $450! I realized that I had made a mistake in not allowing Mr. Augulis to handle the estate. I engaged Mr. Augulis and found his fees to be reasonable, the work to be excellent and the communications to be superb. An attorney on his staff, Peggy, was there for me every step of the way. Mr. Augulis put me in contact with a fine accountant who handled the estate tax return filings. Mr. Augulis was competent, capable, honest and someone I do not hesitate to recommend. He is truly a hidden gem of an attorney! In a world where many lawyers are unethical and interested in billable hours over client's interests, Mr. Augulis is a light of fresh air. Thank you Mr. Augulis for helping me with mom's estate! I do not know what I would have done without you!
