Probate

Solo practitioner with undergraduate degree in Accounting has done hundreds of Wills and related documents and has handled numerous estate administrations. Penn Law Graduate and former member of Board of Governors of Philadelphia Bar Association.

I am a solo practitioner so clients deal directly with me. I answer my own phone and return all calls. Office phone migrates to my cell phone so I answer during business hours as long as I am not in court or meeting with a client. I have handled small estate petitions (no real estate and under $50,000 in assets) up to multi-million dollar estates. I represent a government entity and have represented a nationally-known, publicly-traded corporation, a seller of a 96 unit apartment building and a medical group of four doctors in purchase of a medical center and creation of partnerships. No estate is too small or too large for me to handle. I can represent an estate for a fee calculated under a formula followed by PA courts since 1983 or hourly as client decides.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

Estate administration makes use of my education and professional experience. I have an undergraduate degree in Business Administration with major in Accounting and, of course, a law degree.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others?

My undergraduate degree prepared me for the need to assist clients in the financial workings of estate administration, keeping track of assets and liabilities, preparing and filing inheritance tax returns and final accounting to heirs and distribution.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

I am a solo and I answer my own phone and promptly return all calls. I am aware of the need for compassion when dealing with someone who has recently suffered the loss of a loved one. My office on City Avenue at Monument Avenue near Channel 6 and Channel 10 and Target Store is convenient to all of the Philadelphia area with ample free parking.
