Legal Practices Area

Estate Planning

Everyone, regardless of age, needs some estate documents, such as a Will, a Health Care Proxy, and/or a Power of Attorney. We will sit with you and together we will analyze your specific needs. We will make recommendations and suggestions for you to consider and then draft the specific documents which are appropriate for you.

Real Estate

Buying or selling a home is one of the most important financial and emotional decisions you will make. There is nothing in the law that prevents you from buying or selling your residence on your own. However, most real estate experts, sellers, and increasingly buyers employ the services of real estate brokers and lawyers to help them navigate through the often confusing world of real estate transactions.

Elder Care

We will help you or a family member (i.e. parent) prepare for Medicaid. Once we have the applicant qualified we will walk the applicant step-by-step through the process. We will then present the case to Medicaid.

Commercial / Civil Litigation

If you are being sued you must promptly answer the summons and complaint to protect your rights. Navigating the Court system takes experience and expertise, which the law firm of Jack Stern can provide for you. 

Traffic Tickets & DUIs

The Law Firm of Stern, Stern, & Fruchtman can help you fight against being charged with traffic tickets and decrease or completely eliminate any points from your license. 

Criminal Defense

When facing criminal charges, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney familiar with the charges, the court system, the prosecutors, and the process.


Whether it’s an S Corp., Limited Liability Company, Sole Proprietorship, Partnership, etc., we will help you determine what is right for your business. We will prepare all the necessary filings with the appropriate state agencies and help you get your business underway quickly and efficiently.
