Estate Planning Lawyer Montgomery County, PA

Estate Planning Lawyer Montgomery County, PAWhile the importance of proper estate planning is well-known, some young people still don’t believe having a will is necessary. They might think that they don’t have enough assets yet or a big enough family to necessitate an estate plan. However, having a solid estate plan is crucial for people of all ages. Even if you aren’t fully established yet, you should still consider speaking to an estate planning lawyer in Montgomery County, PA, about drafting a will.

Why Young People Need Estate Plans

  • You Received an Inheritance: If you recently received an inheritance from a family member, you might not consider it an asset. However, it’s actually in your best interest to put it in your estate plan. Otherwise, should you die suddenly, it will be much more difficult for your surviving family members to obtain it.

  • You Have a Pet: If you have a dog or cat, you likely consider it a member of your family. You want your pet to have a good life, even if it outlives you. That’s why an estate planning lawyer in Montgomery County, PA, would advise you to create a will. In this legal document, you can appoint a person you trust to take care of your pet and set aside money for its care.

  • You Want to Give Assets to Friends: If you die without a will your wishes no longer matter. The Intestacy Rules determine who gets your assets. Most likely, immediate family members, like your spouse, parents, or siblings, will receive your assets. Therefore, if you want to leave some of your possessions to friends, it’s critical for you to establish a will.  Because these are not your family members, make sure your will is properly drafted. Otherwise, an expensive will challenge could result. Get the help of an estate planning lawyer in Montgomery County, PA.

  • You Want Your Family to Avoid Probate: Without a will, your family will have to take your assets through probate, which can be a very long process. The state where you live and your particular assets will determine if probate is advisable. By establishing a proper estate plan, your beneficiaries could receive your assets much faster.

  • You Might Become Physically Incapacitated: Even if you’re perfectly healthy right now, you never know what the future holds. If an illness or injury renders you physically incapacitated, you need a trustworthy person to make medical decisions on your behalf. Typically, part of drafting an estate plan includes preparing a health care directive.  The health care directive, or Living Will and also known as a Medical Power of Attorney, names your Surrogate. The Surrogate has the power to make medical decisions when you cannot.

Hiring an Estate Planning Lawyer

Establishing an estate plan can be very complex, and you don’t want to do it alone. Although there is DIY software out there, it’s easy to make errors if you don’t know estate law. It’s in your best interest to consult an experienced estate planning lawyer in Montgomery County, PA, as soon as possible. A lawyer can help you establish a proper estate plan in a timely fashion.

Peter provided outstanding advice and preparation of a will and trusts.

Peter was excellent. He explained everything very clearly and is super friendly. My wife and I originally tried using a lawyer through group legal coverage, but unfortunately the old adage - "you get what you pay for" - applied to the other lawyer, and we decided to go with a real professional.

When it came down to picking the right attorney to handle my affairs, I knew right away it was this firm. From speaking to their secretary to speaking to Peter I knew I was making the right decision. After only a few mins Peter knew right away what I was looking for and handled all my questions professionally and even gave me great feedback that put my mind at ease. All that without even giving a single penny! So of course I hired him! So far so good...

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 is excellent. I had a very complicated situation with my parents' estate planning and potential Medicaid needs. Peter was very knowledgeable in estate planning matters, able to define the best solution for the situation. Additionally, he was congenial and able to communicate effectively to my senior citizen parents the benefits of estate planning. He earned my trust, and more importantly, my parents' trust in a 45 mins consultation period. Highly recommend Peter. He is very easy to work with.
