Estate Planning

Pennsylvania Estate Planning Attorneys

The disposition of your estate is not something that you should leave to chance. If you die without a will, your assets and possessions will be distributed according to Pennsylvania laws. A will is the foundation of most people's estate planning strategy. More complete and encompassing estate planning may include trusts, powers of attorney and health care directives.

Contact a lawyer at Quinn, Buseck, Leemhuis, Toohey & Kroto, Inc. to schedule a consultation regarding estate planning in Pennsylvania if any of the following sounds similar to your position in life and your concerns:

  • You are at the beginning of adulthood. Perhaps you are recently married, just had your first child or are not married but are beginning to acquire assets.
  • Your children are growing, your career is maturing and you are interested in protecting your assets from excessive taxation should anything happen to you.
  • You are an empty-nester, thinking seriously about long-term plans and the legacy you intend to leave behind through the direction of your assets.
