Estate planning

At the Law Offices of 194 W. Johnstown Road we use proven estate planning tools to ensure the cost-effective transfer of your property. We never take a one-size-fits-all approach to estate planning. We ensure that your estate plan is tailored to your specific needs. 


Wills: A will is a document stating your intention for how you want your property to be distributed to your heirs.

Trusts: Trusts can take the place of or supplement a will. A trust manages the allocation of property by giving its benefits to many individuals and can be used while an individual is still living. Trusts become more useful for high-value estates and tax avoidance.

Health care directives: Also known as living wills, these documents express how you would like to be treated in different medical situations.

Power of attorney: Granting a power of attorney to an individual allows them to act on your behalf in various business and legal matters.
