I sincerely enjoy and appreciate the opportunity to interact with clients. Understanding that end of life issues raise so many emotions in clients – grief, concern, stress, confusion – I strive to bring an empathetic as well as a sympathetic approach to my clients’ needs.

My principal area of practice involves aiding our clients with the administration of an Estate and the preparation of the Pennsylvania Inheritance Transfer Tax return. As such, I am involved in daily communications with clients, financial institutions, accountants, financial planners, as well as the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue.

Following the death of a loved one, your primary concern should be emotional healing.  Let us assist you with the legal, financial and administrative issues that occur when there is the death of a loved one.
