An important part of my law practice is the representation of clients in trusts and estates matters. These activities often require a great deal of sensitivity to the needs of clients in handling what can often be very emotional matters. I often am called upon to use my legal counseling skills to properly advise clients of the choices available to them.

The scope of my trust and estates activities includes the following:

  • Drafting of wills and/or trusts;
  • Drafting general powers of attorney;
  • Drafting of advanced health care directives (living wills and health care powers of attorney);
  • Representing executors in the administration of estates through the probate process;
  • Representing parties in disputes over the interpretation of wills and/or trusts;
  • When requested to do so, acting as a trustee;
  • Completing Pennsylvania inheritance tax returns.

All of these matters are handled with care and at the same time in a cost effective fashion.
