Effective probate attorneys base their workloads and fees on the circumstances of each estate. Our Guide to Pennsylvania Probate Attorney Fees can help you learn what a Probate Attorney in Pennsylvania can charge.
Serving as Executor or Administrator of a Pennsylvania estate is a time-consuming and challenging task. A person taking on this responsibility and commitment deserves compensation. However, since relatively few of us ever serve in this capacity, it’s sometimes confusing to guess whether that compensation is fair or excessive. Our team has compiled The Guide to Pennsylvania Executor’s Fees for Pennsylvania residents, designed to help you avoid mistakes that can put you at odds with creditors or heirs.
A person serving as a trustee is responsible for the proper maintenance of the fund and-often-the well-being of beneficiaries. Is the fee a trustee can charge based on a percentage of the trust fund? Are corporate trustees allowed to charge more than regular people? Our Guide to Pennsylvania Trustee Fees examines how to determine the right compensation structure.
An Agent typically has access to the principal’s entire financial portfolio. When another person has control of your financial assets, how can you ensure they are appropriately compensated? Just because someone is authorized to use your accounts, does not mean they should enjoy free rein. Our Guide to Agent and Power of Attorney Fees in Pennsylvania reviews appropriate Agent compensation.

Whether overseeing a minor or an incapacitated person, one thread binds the spectrum of scenarios: responsibility and commitment to the incapacitated person. Persons who assume this critical task deserve compensation, but how much? Our Guide to Pennsylvania Guardianship Fees reveals today’s best practices.

I contacted Peter through his website using the free consultation link for a question regarding a will. While I was expecting only a few minutes, it was a lengthy conversation. He made sure he understood the situation by asking many questions before offering advice. He then went through my options and results of each one. He left it up to me to decide if I wanted to proceed and did not push me toward one or another. His website has very useful information which I definitely researched before I called him. While I decided not to proceed at this time, I feel I had enough information to make that decision. I would not hesitate to hire him should I need to in the future.
Peter came highly recommended by a close friend to do our estate planning. We have been putting off for years. He is knowledgeable, professional and easy to work with.
Peter recently gave a presentation about Wills & Trusts at my employer, and it was fantastic! He was extremely knowledgeable and provided valuable information to the group. People were very engaged and asked several questions, all of which Peter thoroughly answered. Personally, my husband and I have selected Peter to help us with our estate planning, and he has been very helpful in providing us with all of the information we need to provide a secure future for our family. Thank you, Peter!
