Will & Estate Planning Lawyer Serving York, Hanover, Adams, Lancaster, and Harrisburg

Individuals

All people, all families, need proper estate planning in Pennsylvania to keep their loved ones safe.Everybody needs a will. It doesn’t matter if you have a large estate or a small, simple one. It doesn't matter how old you are. If you do not have a will, Pennsylvania law will distribute your property (and decide who takes care of your children) when you pass away. Unfortunately, the unexpected can happen at any age and at any time. Failure to prepare properly can cause great stress to your loved ones during what is certain to be a very difficult time.

Pennsylvania Powers of Attorney

In addition to a will, it is critical that everyone has appropriate documents to protect them should they become incapacitated. This includes powers of attorney (which allow someone to handle both your health and financial matters for you) and living wills (which tell treating physicians how to proceed if you are in what is determined to be a terminal medical condition). These documents can alleviate much stress and difficulty if you should become ill or seriously injured. Each document is tailored to your specific needs. In addition, Sara always checks in with her clients every few years to make certain their circumstances or the laws haven’t changed so that their needs are still being met.
