Estate Planning

When you come to my Greensburg office, I will listen carefully as you discuss your finances, your family, your values and your goals. I will then draft documents that reflect your wishes and that can help you achieve those goals. When a significant change in your life occurs, such as marriage, the birth of a child, or divorce, I you should and can update your estate documents.

Business Succession Planning

In addition to estate law, I have extensive knowledge of and experience in business law, real estate and other matters affecting the management of business enterprises.

As a business owner, you have put your heart and soul into making your company successful. I can help you plan for the transfer of a business to a family member or another party, so that it continues to be a source of employment and income for your family.

Efficient And Cost-Effective Probate Administration Services

My law firm provides probate and estate administration services designed to efficiently wrap up the financial affairs of estates. My goal will be to complete the process as quickly as possible, so that the estate's assets can be distributed to beneficiaries in accordance with the will.

If you live some distance away from Greensburg but you have been named an executor (personal representative) of a Pennsylvania estate, I can handle all aspects of the probate administration process without your need to travel.
