Thank you for looking at my profile. My 33 years of experience will assure you that I will anticipate issues that many less experienced estate planners would never anticipate. I endeavor to make sure that every client fully and completely understands each and every document prepared for them as well as the complete probate administration process. As a result, much of my estate administration business comes from my estate planning clients who are faced with administering their parent's estates. Estate planning is a process that requires a complete understanding of the client's situation and goals. My staff and I will devote the time necessary to complete your estate planning documents in a timely and professional manner.
I was recently designated as a Top Lawyer by Main Line
