About Nicholas

Learn Nicholas’s areas of practice.

In today's complex society, it's important to be well informed and prepared. Many times we are faced with making difficult decisions without sufficient information. Circumstances may also place us in complicated situations that could have been handled easily if proper planning had been undertaken.


My name is Nick Giuditta. I represent individuals seeking advice in estate and tax planning, probate, elder law and guardianship matters. I regularly prepare Wills, Durable Powers of Attorney and Advance Directives (Living Wills). I also represent executors and adminstrators of estates to guide them through the technical probate and estate administration process. These services begin with probating or validating the Will through the completion of inheritance and estate tax returns and distribution of assets to heirs.


Procrastination, whether it be in planning your estate or acting in a timely manner to administer an estate, invariably leads to lost opportunity and  greater expense. We can assist you with difficult and personal decisions regarding these family matters and expedite the process. Telephone calls and emails are returned within 24 hours and usually the same day.


I am committed to ensuring the law works as effectively as possible for you. Please feel free to call so I can assist you in making the right choices for you and your family.

I had no idea estate planning was so important until my mom was diagnosed with cancer and had 6 weeks to live. A neighbor recommended Nicholas Giuditta. The first phone call and meeting sealed the deal. His compassion, understanding, and willingness to guide me thru this process when time was of the essence lifted a large burden off of my shoulders. Estate planning at any time is overwhelming but Nick was there with professional guidance and a shoulder to lean on every step of the way. He was always willing to answer any questions, give legal advice, and assist in handling a lot of family drama. I was so pleased with Nick’s services, that my husband and I actually did ‘our’ estate planning with Nick. I would highly recommend Nicholas Giuditta! You not only receive the best professional help but also make a friend in the process!

Highly Recommend
Nick Giuditta was there during the worst days of my life. It's not often when you come across a lawyer who really cares. He was instrumental in settling my father's estate. His guidance is what I had hoped for. He effectively communicated each step that needed to be taken and made certain I had a clear understanding of the process. He is empathetic towards his clients needs and also builds a strong rapport with those he interacts with. I would highly recommend Nick to anyone who is searching for a lawyer.

Superlative, honest & a great. communicator !!
I contacted Mr. Giuditta to discuss the possibilities of my case regarding a potential litigation situation related to the settlement of an estate. He was very generous with his time over the phone. I ended up hiring him and was extremely pleased with his attention to my situation. Mr. Giuditta returned phone calls in a very timely fashion, replied to my emails and keep me updated with my case. He has a very pleasant manner, addressed my questions thoroughly and with patience. The final settlement of my situation was within the time frame he stated and the concluding details were handled without a problem. I highly recommend him should your situation fall within his expertise. NO hesitation in my mind !
