Basic Estate Probate Services in Pennsylvania

We offer our Basic Estate Probate Services to personal representatives who are responsible for the estate planning and administration of relatively uncomplicated estate matters. Our estate planning lawyers also provide these services to clients who desire less than our comprehensive probate services.

Comprehensive Estate Probate Attorney Services

In addition to our basic estate probate services, we also offer the most comprehensive estate probate services available. These services, guided by our experienced attorney, are particularly valuable to personal representatives who are involved with the complex estate probate process, as well as personal representatives who are living out of state or abroad.

Powers of Attorney (POA) gives another person the power to make financial decisions and property transactions on your behalf.

For example, if a person dies and upon distribution of assets, the estate or a large portion of it is left to a minor child, a legal guardian will need to be appointed for them and the estate until they reach adulthood.

We ensure the performance of all of your duties and fiduciary obligations in strict accordance with state probate law.

Here are just a few examples of the many probate duties covered by our full and complete services:

  • Initial filings and appointments, including securing surety bonding, if required
  • Notices to beneficiaries and heirs
  • Estate advertising
  • Securing of assets
  • Insurance of assets
  • Final accountings
  • Payment of estate debts and obligations
  • Sale and liquidation of real and personal property and securities
  • Filing of inheritance tax return and final state and federal returns, and fiduciary returns
  • Informal or formal estate settlement agreements
  • Distribution of estate property
