Delaware County Estate Planning Attorney

I help clients understand the law pertaining to estate plans in Pennsylvania, as well as the consequences of their decisions. When drafting a will, trust, power of attorney or other estate planning tool, it is crucial to know what you are signing. Too often, people use boilerplate documents that do not reflect their actual wishes.

I offer estate planning assistance based on more than 10 years of experience practicing law in Delaware County and 20 years of experience teaching law in the areas of wills and trusts, and property and real estate law.

Media Estate Planning Lawyer

No matter the size of your estate, you need current information when making critical decisions, as estate planning laws change frequently. I can build flexibility into your will, so it will withstand future changes to the laws. I handle estates ranging in size from modest to large. Contact me for guidance in the following areas:

  • Wills (simple to complex)
  • Trusts, including living trusts
  • Elder law and the financing of nursing home care
  • Inheritance tax planning
  • Health care directives
  • Powers of attorney, including durable power of attorney and health care power of attorney
  • Special needs trusts
  • Guardianships
  • Estate taxation
  • Prenuptial agreements

Do I Need a Revocable Trust/Living Trust?

While some so-called experts exaggerate the value of revocable trusts, also known as living trusts and revocable living trusts, they do offer significant potential benefits to certain individuals. They can also offer some advantages over powers of attorney. Please contact me to find out if a revocable/living trust is the right option for you.

Beware of Probate Avoidance Schemes

Many advertisements offer documents or living trust systems that claim to enable a person to avoid probate. There are dangerous pitfalls to revocable trusts/living trusts for some people, and it is important to keep in mind that the primary goal of these companies is to make money. For most people, there is no reason to purchase an expensive document package to avoid probate fees.
