Safeguarding Your Present & Future

Pittsburgh Estate Planning Lawyer

Protect Your Assets, Your Family, and Your Future

Estate planning involves making arrangements for how your affairs will be handled if you experience a serious injury, illness or death. Your estate plan typically consists of a number of legal documents, such as a will, power of attorney, and trust, but also consists of arrangements such as pay-on-death beneficiary endorsements, joint ownership with right of survivorship, etc.

Every estate plan is different and must be customized to your individual needs and concerns. At Marks Elder Law, we work one on one with our clients to tailor their estate plan to their unique circumstances. Our lawyers in Western Pennsylvania can even work with your financial advisor, accountant, or other professionals as needed.

Importance of Having an Estate Plan

Drafting an estate plan while you can still state your wishes is essential as it allows you to declare how you want your affairs handled and by whom. If you pass away without an estate plan in place your wishes may be unknown, questioned, or not followed. Your estate will likely go through the probate process where an impartial judge will make important decisions on your assets.

Creating an estate plan with our attorneys can help to avoid or reduce significant legal issues and expenses for your family. Additionally, most aspects of your planned estate are flexible and can be changed at any time.

We offer a wide range of estate planning services, including:

  • Last Will and Testament
  • A living trust or Revocable Trust
  • Irrevocable trust
  • Special needs trust
  • Asset Protection Trust
  • Gifting and tax planning
  • Power of Attorney
  • Health Care Power of Attorney and Living Will
  • Long term care planning
  • Deeds and asset transfers
  • Planning with IRAs, 401ks, etc.
