Knowledgeable Estate Law Representation

Many assume that estate planning involves only the wealthy trying to protect assets or the elderly trying to get their affairs in order. However, estate planning is also a useful tool for families with young children who need to establish guardianship in case the parents are incapacitated or deceased. An experienced estate law attorney can also provide guidance to families and beneficiaries going through the probate process and the many other details that need to be resolved.

At Gordon & Dennison, we understand that each family is different and the needs of their estate are unique. We customize our estate planning services to address the needs of the client and to minimize the impact these challenges will have on the rest of the family.

A Final Gift To Family

Many find it difficult to contemplate their mortality or make important decisions regarding how assets should be distributed. While Pennsylvania does have a clearly defined probate process, avoiding these important decisions means that others will have to guess what your intentions were.

By clearly and carefully considering an estate plan, you can even ease the mourning process by making all foreseeable decisions yourself. Working with a knowledgeable lawyer can lessen expenses, avoid overpaying taxes and guide families going through the probate process. If disputes arise, we can provide knowledgeable and unbiased guidance to resolve them quickly and effectively whenever possible.
