Full-Service Estate Planning And Administration Lawyers

Zullinger-Davis-Trinh, P.C., offers comprehensive representation in estate planning, probate, estate administration, and litigation. Our work begins with determining each client's individual estate plan and making those lifetime decisions that are so critical.

But we don't stop there. Our attorneys also provide guidance and support to executors, administrators, and family members of the deceased during what is often a difficult and uncertain time. These are just some of the ways that we demonstrate our commitment to being a full-service law firm.

Our Estate Planning Services

We are prepared to assist you with nearly any aspect of estate planning, including drafting:

  • Wills
  • Trusts
  • Special needs trusts
  • Living wills
  • Durable powers of attorney
  • Health care powers of attorney
  • Guardianships

In addition to drafting the documents listed above, our firm can also help you amend or update your estate planning documents. We are prepared to assist you even if a different firm wrote the original documents.

Pennsylvania Probate Lawyers

Although many people go into estate planning with the goal of avoiding probate, this isn't always possible. If and when a Will must be probated, it is important to seek the help of an experienced attorney.

Probating a Will is a detail-oriented and time-consuming process. As such, it is easy to make mistakes if you are not an attorney. Tasks such as paying inheritance taxes and filing inheritance tax returns are not something the average person feels comfortable doing on their own. And any savings associated with the do-it-yourself approach must be weighed against the costs of fixing mistakes.

Estate Administration Services And Litigation

Generally speaking, the goals of estate planning and administration are to honor the decedent's wishes and to reach family agreement and unity. At Zullinger-Davis-Trinh, P.C., we describe our role in estate administration as counseling families through the process.

We work very well with estate executors and administrators, guiding them and offering advice as they fulfill their duties. With all clients, we seek a good working relationship that is emotionally supportive and sensitive to their needs.

In cases where litigation is necessary (contesting a Will or contesting/defending heirs, for instance), we will vigorously defend the interests of our clients and their loved ones. At the same time, we strive to resolve these matters quickly, affordably, and peacefully whenever possible.
