Norris McLaughlin & Marcus, P.A announced Nicholas J. Dimakos, a member to the firm, will speak on the role of the court-appointed attorney at “Handling Contested Guardianships.” Sponsored by the New Jersey Institute for Continuing Legal Education (NJICLE) in cooperation with the New Jersey State Bar Association (NJSBA) Real Property, Trust & Estate Law Section and the NJSBA Senior Lawyers Special Committee, the program will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 12:35 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 24, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Fairfield.
Dimakos focuses primarily on guardianships and probate and fiduciary litigation. In addition to representing plaintiffs in guardianship matters, Dimakos has extensive experience acting as court-appointed counsel, serving both as an advocate and as a temporary guardian for allegedly incapacitated persons, as well as guardian ad litem. His practice also includes will contests, accountings, and other trust and estate disputes. He writes about guardianships and other probate issues on the firm’s NJ Guardianship & Probate Law Blog.
Dimakos received his J.D., magna cum laude, from Seton Hall University School of Law, where he was a member of the Seton Hall Law Review, served as a research assistant for two professors, and interned for the Chief Judge of the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey, the Honorable Garrett E. Brown, Jr. (Ret.). After graduation, Dimakos clerked for the Assignment Judge of Bergen County, the Honorable Peter E. Doyne (Ret.).
