Wills ▪ Trusts ▪ Power of attorneys ▪ Health directives ▪ Business succession ▪ Medicaid Planning

We integrate our complete range of family law and business law services to meet our clients' estate planning needs. We know that helping to preserve the estate assets of a homestead in Woodbury is just as important as setting up the right business succession plan for the owner of a family business in Altoona. Estate planning isn't just about making sure the right people receive the right things. It is about making sure that your loved ones are protected from the devastating effects of probate court decisions, inheritance taxes, nursing home admissions and unforeseen disputes upon your death.

We offer more than simple wills

We can also help your family deal with the probate law issues that may arise following the death of the estate holder. Your Evey Black attorney will work closely with you to represent your interests in probate court. We handle every legal detail including probate, assisting in the transfer of assets, working with creditors, preparing inheritance tax returns, working to resolve disputes among beneficiaries, and handling the details of any contractual obligations that might be outstanding. Our lawyers know that what you need most following the death of a loved one is compassion, responsiveness to your needs, and the time to grieve and heal. We handle the estate details so you can focus on your family's needs.

Guardianships

In the event that you are considering filing for guardianship of a minor child or a vulnerable adult, we can help you with every part of the process. From gathering initial records and filing the petition to representing you at the final hearing, we will be at your side, helping you manage the issues that can block a successful petition.

A note to parents of young children

Many young parents make the mistake of overlooking the importance of having a legal will in place. Your testamentary will isn't just about who receives what from your home. You can also use the will to establish who should raise your children in the event of your early death. Having a will, durable power of attorney, and an advance healthcare directive regarding your medical treatment will resolve the tough issues and decisions that often are left surrounding minor-age children when parents die unexpectedly early.

Medicaid Planning

The need for nursing home placement of a loved one can be a stressful process for the family. Questions arise concerning protection of assets, appropriate transfers of assets and payment for care. Medicaid has many confusing rules and requirements. We can help you understand this process and protect your hard-earned money. Whether planning for the future or facing an imminent nursing home admission, let us help you maximize your assets and income.

Talk to us about your estate planning needs. It's never too early or too late to start protecting your family's success. Contact our offices in Hollidaysburg or Roaring Spring to discuss your estate and probate law needs with an attorney from our estate planning group. Home visits can be arranged at clients' request for wills, power of attorneys, and living wills.
