Religious Jews respect halachah in all aspects of their lives. It governs birth, adulthood, marriage, and death. It governs work and rest from work.

Because halachah governs all aspects of Jewish life, it intersects with secular law from time-to-time. For example, when a person wants to leave his estate to all of his children, in equal measure, he is making a gift that is not consistent with halachic strictures. However, traditional and well-respected Jewish law recognizes the use of shtarim to simultaneously leave one’s estate as one chooses but also conform with halachah.

If your business or personal needs require legal services from a law firm well-equipped to address the intersection of Jewish and secular law, Lippman, Semsker & Salb can help. This Firm has the skill, knowledge, and background to help you comply with Halachah and civil law.
