Pittsburgh Estate Planning – Wills, Trusts, Powers of Attorney, Living Wills

Pittsburgh Estate Planning Attorney
Preserving your financial legacy for family members or a lifetime partner is extremely important.
We are Pittsburgh Estate Planning Attorneys Serving Clients in the Wexford, Cranberry, Sewickley, and Greater Pittsburgh area to Preserve Their Financial Legacies.

 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

Regardless of the total value of your assets, an estate plan that is the result of clear discussions between lawyer and client, can accommodate the needs of your loved ones and can ensure that money is left to those to whom you intend.

Do I need an Estate Plan?

We provide advice to help answer this question, because we will advise about legal tools that enable you to deal with medical and financial issues for your family when you can no longer handle your own affairs.

  • For instance, 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.
  • 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. Additionally, we can also advise you about any new law that applies to your existing estate plan. We can revise your estate plan to conform with current law, if necessary.
