Helping You Put Important Plans In Place
Estate planning can give you peace of mind that your most important wishes will be carried out and your loved ones provided for in the face of an uncertain future. At Olexa & Casari, in Hazleton, our attorneys can guide you through all aspects of the estate planning process, including the creation of:
Wills: A Pennsylvania will is a document that determines where your assets will go upon your death. It is a legal document with much importance, as a Pennsylvania testator (or the person drafting the will) gets to make these decisions based on his/her preferences and determine which family members or others will receive assets or property from the estate upon death.
Living wills: A living will allow you to decide which types of medical treatment you want to receive and which you would like to decline in certain (typically end of life) scenarios.
Trusts: Trusts perform a variety of functions, from allowing property to be passed to heirs without probate, to providing for the needs of a loved one with special needs. We can help you understand the pros and cons of various types of trusts so you can maximize their asset protection potential.
Powers of attorney: By establishing a power of attorney, you can grant a trusted agent to make important decisions on your behalf.
Our estate planning lawyers will work with you personally to ensure that each document is tailored to your unique needs and goals. We have helped generations of Pennsylvanians achieve the peace of mind that comes with having a sound estate plan in place.
