Estate Planning Attorneys Serving Clients in the Beaver Valley and Greater Pittsburgh to Preserve Their Financial Legacies.

Preserving your financial legacy for family members or a lifetime partner is extremely important. Everyone deserves the peace of mind that their assets will pass on to their loved ones after death, that money left to minor children can be safely administered for their benefit, and that their financial and medical affairs can be managed in the event of illness or incapacity. An estate plan that is the result of clear, understandable discussions between lawyer and client can accommodate the needs of your loved ones, regardless of the total value of your assets and can provide that money is left to those to whom you intend. If your success has led to high net worth, proper estate planning can establish trusts to shelter money from Federal Death Tax. If you have a lifetime friend or partner, your estate plan can address the special issues that concern you. We provide advice regarding legal tools that enable our clients to deal with medical and financial issues for their loved ones when illness or incapacity prevent them from handling their own decisions and affairs.  With financial and medical powers of attorney and living wills, your business and medical affairs can be handled by trusted family members or friends if you are unable to handle them yourself.

If you have an existing estate plan, our attorneys will meet with you to review it and, if necessary, can update it to accommodate changes in your life circumstances. We can also advise you as to any new law that is applicable to your existing estate plan and can revise your estate plan to conform with current law, if necessary.
