Everyone Needs a Plan
Everyone should have some kind of estate plan. Whether you are wealthy or not, when you make decisions in advance about your health and property, you are looking after your loved ones and their future, and avoiding disputes about how to divide your estate.
We recommend that every client should have a will, a power of attorney and an advance health care directive.
Estate Administration and Orphans’ Court Litigation
After a person has passed away, his or her assets must be distributed to the heirs. An estate plan determines how the distribution should go, but it does require a good amount of work from the person’s personal representative, who is sometimes known as the executor. We help personal representatives inventory estates, pay off any remaining debts or taxes, file all paperwork and manage the many tasks that go into settling and administering an estate.
Occasionally, a problem arises during the administration of an estate. Some of the most difficult cases involve disputes over the interpretation or validity of the will. We represent clients in these legally difficult and extremely sensitive cases, helping them resolve disputes in a way that defends their rights and respects their loved ones.
