Comprehensive Estate Planning

In practice for 30 years, attorney Joe Ferdinand has helped hundreds of couples and individuals prepare for the future. He helps clients identify goals, anticipate unfavorable scenarios, and dispel common myths. For example, it's not always good to avoid probate, and a living trust does not shield survivors from Pennsylvania inheritance taxes (only spouses are exempt).

Proper estate planning does express your clear wishes, providing guidance and security to family members through:

  • A will detailing who inherits your assets
  • Powers of attorney to govern your financial affairs
  • Advance medical directives and living wills
  • Guardianship of minor children
  • Trusts to preserve and control assets
  • Business succession planning
  • Estate tax and inheritance tax planning
  • Elder law planning

Before you sign a will or other estate planning document, have it reviewed by an attorney. Better yet, have it drafted by an experienced lawyer who understands state and federal laws and the legal and personal ramifications for those you love.

Contact attorney Joe Ferdinand today at (570) 213-7961 or (888) 493-4887 to discuss your estate planning goals in a discreet, comfortable settling.
