Butrym & Cassavell is a leading firm in the greater Princeton, New Jersey area practicing in the field of Elder Law and issues relating to estate and financial planning for elderly and disabled persons. The firm has historically and will continue to concentrate its practice in the area of probate and property law, which entails matters such as estate planning, guardianship, wills, trusts, and real estate transactions.

Family "milestones" such as births, deaths, marriage, separation or divorce in many obvious, but often in very subtle ways, affect the legal relationships, responsibilities and expectancies of not only the persons directly involved, but also of those who live, love or deal with them.

The emancipation of a child, family relocation or starting a new career may or may not dictate a change in financial and estate documents. Certainly, a new business venture or the purchase of a major asset in common with a non-spouse or anyone who is not an immediate family member should trigger, at least, an examination of these items.

We invite you to consult with us and consider our firm as your source of advice and assistance in matters concerning the "business" aspect of life.

If you have need of legal advice or services in matters which may be outside of our customary area of practice, you may call on us for advice and reference to sources and attorneys whose practices and experience may best suit your requirements.

Edward, J. Butrym, Esq.
Laura W. Cassavell, Esq.


On January 1, 2003, BUTRYM AND CASSAVELL, P.C. became the new name of RUHLMAN & BUTRYM, P.A., a law practice with roots reaching back over three generations in the Hopewell Valley.

That firm was formed in 1973 with the merger of the law practices of Edward J. Butrym who established a practice in Pennington in 1968 and Cassell R. Ruhlman, Jr. Mr. Ruhlman, who retired in 1988, succeeded to the practice of his father, who settled in Pennington some 80 years earlier and assisted in the original development of a major portion of the Borough.

With the addition of Laura W. Cassavell, the firmís name now reflects and recognizes the talents and contributions of these attorneys who have been associated with the firm over the past several years.


We are pleased to announce that our firm has recently been selected as participating attorneys for
