Estate Planning
Our firm values being caring and responsive. We will listen to you and develop an estate plan that helps achieve your goals,
A lot of people think they don't need an estate plan, or they aren't ready to think it. The truth is that the state has a default estate plan for you if you do no™t make one. Almost all families can benefit from a well-drafted estate plan. Your estate plan can direct how your property will be divided and who will raise your children. Careful drafting can take account of property that you acquire later or children born after your estate plan is drafted.

We will listen to you and develop a strategy that helps you achieve your goals. Over the course of three meetings, either in our office or at your home, we will help you develop a plan, draft a plan for you to review, and have you sign the relevant document. Your plan will be tailored to meeting your goals, whatever they are, including:
providing for your family
leaving specific gifts
donating to charity
minimizing expenses and taxes
preparing for incapacity with powers of attorney
choosing personal representatives/trustees for your estate
providing for the succession and continuation of your business
Probate
Having a loved one pass can be stressful enough. Being responsible for administering your loved one’s estate can add to the stress level. Let a professional help you get through the process.
Probate is the legal process of settling the estate – filing the person’s will (if there is a will), identifying and paying creditors, paying taxes, and distributing the rest of the property under the person’s will – or if there is no will, under state law.

The process usually begins by filing a petition for probate (including the will) with the Register of Wills in the county where the decedent lived. The personal representative must obtain a Letter of Appointment from the Register of Wills to begin the process. If the process can be overseen administratively, it is overseen by the Register of Wills where the decedent lived. If not, it is overseen by the Orphans Court in that jurisdiction. The Orphans Court also hears all matters involving contested estates. While it is possible to work through the process yourself, it is time-consuming. Let a professional guide you through the process.
