An Experienced Estate Planning And Probate Lawyer Serving Delaware County & Surrounding Area

Planning For Your Family's Future

Estate planning is about much more than simply filling out the right forms. To create the best plan for yourself and your family, it's important to work with an experienced estate planning attorney who can help you understand Pennsylvania's laws and translate the fine print into plain English so that you can make informed decisions about your assets and your family's future.

I, Jeff L. Lewin, Attorney at Law, offer estate planning assistance based on more than 15 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.

An Experienced 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
  • Inheritance tax planning
  • Healthcare directives
  • Powers of attorney, including durable power of attorney and health care power of attorney
  • Special needs trusts
  • Estate taxation
  • IRAs and 401(k)s

I can help you tailor your estate plan to accommodate your unique circumstances. Wills and other documents, for example, can be prepared in a way that disburses funds on a strict and gradual schedule to a beneficiary who struggles with drug addiction, gambling addiction or any other kind of spending problem. I will make sure that your estate planning documents are set up with the correct executor and the correct trustees.

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.

It's Never Too Early To Plan For The Future

It can be stressful to think about the future, but having a solid plan in place can bring you peace of mind. When needed, I also make house calls and hospital visits to plan for your estate in emergency situations.
