Help With Estate Planning

Are you prepared for the future? Do you have a will? Do you need a financial power of attorney or a healthcare power of attorney? Do you need a trust? If you don’t have an estate plan, are unsure if you need any of these documents or have not updated your estate plan for many years, I can help. I’m attorney Shaun E. O’Toole, and at the Law Office of Shaun E. O'Toole, I provide knowledgeable estate planning services. I can provide you with:

Reach Your Goals With An Estate Plan

I take the time to sit down with you, discuss your specific family situation and develop a complete estate plan that will help you achieve your goals. I’ll help you examine relevant legal issues related to the future of your estate and determine the legal instruments you need. Don’t risk leaving behind a negative legacy. Schedule a consultation with me today.

Some people believe an estate plan is only for the wealthy. If you own any property, you need an estate plan to ensure your assets pass to the beneficiaries you designate. If you die without a will, they will pass via “intestate succession” and the Pennsylvania legislature will have determined where your assets go.

What If You Are Incapacitated?

What if you are incapacitated by an illness or accident? Who will have control of your assets, bank accounts or business? Would someone have the legal authority to pay your bills?

A durable power of attorney would provide the answers to these questions. Likewise, a healthcare power of attorney, a living will or advance healthcare directive can help ensure you receive the medical treatment you want when you are unable to speak for yourself.

Here’s What I Can Do For You

You can face the future with confidence. During your estate planning consultation, I can help you:

  • Draft a will or living will
  • Draft a trust
  • Designate durable or healthcare powers of attorney
  • Develop a nursing home plan
