Message to Estate Planning Clients​

Our estate attorneys and staff are pleased to review, at no cost, estate plans we prepared for you (or your clients). Further, if you are a new client concerned about your estate plan and would like to have us review it, there is also no charge for our review.

NOTE: under Pennsylvania law, wills and trusts do NOT need to be witnessed or notarized to be valid. We can provide documentation to clients who wish to revise or develop their estate plans. The clients can execute the documents in their homes and, after the pandemic subsides, we can more fully review the plans and, if necessary, adjust them further at our office and provide for witnesses and notarization. Please read our full statement here.
