Wills & Estates
Our firm provides estate planning services to individuals with estates of all sizes. We assist our clients in developing plans for the transmission of their property and wealth by means of wills and trusts. We advise on the most efficient methods, taking into account the impact of estate and inheritance taxes.
Our firm is well suited to address the specific needs of owners of closely held businesses, for whom we can provide business and succession planning to facilitate the disposition of their business interests. We also prepare Durable Powers of Attorneys, Health Care Powers of Attorney, and Living Wills as a part of the estate plan.
Upon the death of an individual, our firm can assist the estate's personal representative in all facets of estate administration, including probate and ancillary probate proceedings, sale of assets (including business interests and real estate), post-mortem planning, estate and inheritance tax returns, and the preparation of estate accountings. We can also represent the personal representative before the Orphans' Court or other courts having jurisdiction over decedents' estates.
