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.
