Crafting High Quality Estate Plans in Philadelphia

Our Philadelphia estate planning attorneys assist clients in conveying their wishes to loved ones through carefully drafted estate plans. These plans can be as simple or as complex as the client needs or chooses. Our estate planning practice includes:

Wills and will contests: We can help you express your wishes regarding property distribution through a last will and testament. We can help avoid will contests among family members by ensuring that the process of completing and executing your will is valid.

Living wills: Express your end-of-life decisions to loved ones and medical professionals through a living will (also known as an advance directive for health care).

Power of attorney: A power of attorney for health care allows you to appoint someone to make decisions regarding your health care should you become incapable of making such decisions.

Trusts: People have different reasons for using trusts in their estate plan — charitable giving, control, probate avoidance and many other factors. We help you evaluate your needs and determine if a trust is an appropriate instrument for your estate plan.

Post-divorce estate planning services: A will or estate plan that was established years ago may not reflect your current wishes, especially after a divorce. We can assist you in modifying estate plans or establishing new estate plans after family changes.

“So much anxiety has been lifted ”

I have homeowners insurance. The All State Agent called me this afternoon about 3:30 pm they received your fax of the Deed, and I have a policy as of this date. I am so happy and relieved. I picked the right attorney in less than 24 hours you made it happen. So much anxiety has been lifted off my shoulders, I can sleep easy. God Bless You Attorney Langsam.

What a blessing this man has been in my life. I can not thank him enough. You really need an attorney in handling estate matters, real estate, because the general public has no idea. I thank God I started listening to the radio show, and one caller had a question about real estate, Dean said call Saul. I called that Monday morning and he has been an amazing person in my life. Thank you attorney Langsam.

Probate Litigation and Estate Administration

Before property can be distributed to heirs or beneficiaries, an important process called probate, or estate administration, must take place. This process consists of: validating the will, opening the estate and collecting assets, resolving debts, paying taxes and distributing remaining assets to the heirs or beneficiaries according to the will or intestate statute
We assist families through the probate and estate administration process after a loved one passes. Additionally, we represent clients in probate litigation if there is a dispute.
