ESTATE PLANNING SERVICES

Without an estate plan in place, your family’s financial future may be vulnerable. It can be a difficult process determining how your home, financial assets, and possessions should be divided after you pass. Taking the time to plan your estate ensures your wishes are carried out. Together, you and your attorney will design a strategy that protects your family’s interests.

WILLS

A last will and testament is a legal document that insures your wishes are carried out after your death. It appoints guardians for your minor children and controls the division of your individually owned assets. An executor is nominated in your will to manage the distribution of your assets according to your will. The Executor will work alongside our attorneys to administer your estate in accordance with Pennsylvania Law. If you die without a will or trust, the commonwealth will dictate who inherits your money. A will ensures your individually owned assets go to the individuals you want.
