Planning for the future is a crucial step every individual and family should take. The way to protect what you have worked so hard for is through estate planning. Under the guidance of a knowledgeable estate planning attorney, you can have peace of mind that your wishes, assets and legacy are legally preserved for your loved ones and designated heirs.

With nearly 50 years of serving the local communities, we take the time to understand all our clients’ situations and understand how our services can best be used to achieve their goals.

Essential Estate Planning Tools

There are a variety of different types of documents and designations that can be used as part of an estate plan. Our firm can advise you which tools may be right for you.

There are many different uses for the tools and they can accomplish a wide range of goals.

Our firm can provide you with information on:

  • Wills
    • Living wills

Making Changes To Your Estate Plan

Once you have created a comprehensive estate plan, it does not have to just stay that way. Estate planning documents should be updated any time you experience a life-changing event, such as the birth of a child, the death of a loved one, a marriage, a change in your job, the filing of a bankruptcy, a change in your wishes for medical care and more. We are here to help you make changes and keep your estate documents up-to-date, whether you created the documents several months ago or several years ago.

Probate And Estate Administration

In addition to our estate planning services, our firm is able to assist in cases where a loved one has passed away and the estate needs to be handled. We are highly knowledgeable of the probate process in Pennsylvania and can explain the steps the estate must go through in order to be properly distributed according to a valid will or state law.
