Estate Planning

The law firm of Casale & Bonner, P.C., has been serving individuals and families in Pennsylvania since 1956. Our extensive experience and commitment to our clients have resulted in countless referrals over the years. Whether you need to create a basic will or litigate a complex dispute over the distribution of a late family member's assets, we are here for you.

We handle estate planning matters pertaining to:

  • Wills: A will is one of the most basic and vital aspects of an estate plan. It allows you to decide who will receive your property, who will care for your minor children and more.
  • Will contests: We litigate disputes over the validity of wills. Cases like this often involve allegations of undue influence, lack of capacity and other legal issues requiring the assistance of a skilled lawyer.
  • Trusts: Our Williamsport estate planning lawyers help clients create a variety of trusts, including special needs trusts that can be used to provide for a child with physical or cognitive disabilities.
  • Powers of attorney: If you are incapacitated and unable to make medical or financial decisions for yourself, it is important to grant someone else power of attorney. This will allow a person of your choosing to act on your behalf.
  • Advance health care directives: These documents clearly specify your wishes in regard to medical care, should you be incapacitated. They are sometimes called "living wills."
  • Probate: After the death of a loved one, our attorneys can guide you through the complexities of the Pennsylvania probate and estate administration process.
