Chester County Clerk of Orphans’ Court Goes Above and Beyond

Posted on Mon Feb 24, 2014, on Probate and Estate Administration

A problem for many clients suffering from illness or the ravages of old age is that they are not physically able to travel to their Chester County estate planning lawyer’s office. Pennsylvania has by statute addressed this problem by allowing lawyers to witness a client’s signature, and then take that to document to a notary and have the document notarized.

I have done this many times, which saves the client the cost of having a notary travel to the house. The Clerk of the Chester County Orphans’ Court has also recognized this problem and offers the option of sending a person from her offices to travel to hospices, nursing facilities, hospitals, and private homes to notarize power-of-attorneys for those not ambulatory. This service is a blessing for those no longer able to travel on their own.

Good job Chester County Clerk of Orphans’ Court!

Peter is a model attorney who puts his clients first at all costs. His extensive expertise in estate planning and tax planning was a great comfort as we began, and have expanded, our family. He is very thoughtful, generous, and quick witted. His approach towards his business has been an inspiration to his peer group, and his zest for life is extremely infectious. Without reservation, I highly recommend Peter as trusted and cherished counsel

Like another reviewer, I contacted Peter through his website using the free consultation link, for a question regarding PA inheritance taxes. The question was quite technical and difficult to explain, and the answer was nowhere to be found on the web. Peter grasped precisely what I was asking, and provided a clear, helpful response (with a touch of humor) the very next day.

Peter explained things in a way that was easy to understand. Everything was done in the time frame he said it. Could not have been better!
