Estate Planning and Administration

Estate Planning Services in Wake of COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Our firm is committed to serving our clients in their time of need. With the uncertainty of the world today, it is important to be sure that your estate plan is up to date.

We understand that times might be difficult, and we want to help.

If you or your family have been affected by the Coronavirus, we are offering our full estate planning services for a negotiated fee that can be paid via monthly interest free installments. This offer is available upon request to new clients thru July 1, 2020.

Feel free to browse the Estate and Trust section of our website to review the ways we can help your family.

This offer is non-negotiable and not available to existing clients for services other than drafting of wills, trusts, and power of attorney documentation.

Because of the unexpected twists and turns that our lives take, it is important to make our wishes known before it is impossible to do so. For nearly a century, the attorneys at Strassburger McKenna Gutnick & Gefsky have counseled individuals throughout Western Pennsylvania on how to protect their estates, their families, and their futures. With candor tempered with compassion, we provide guidance for our clients in a full range of personal services, including:

  • Simple and complex wills
  • Revocable (living) and irrevocable trusts
  • Special needs planning and trusts
  • Irrevocable life insurance trusts
  • Estate and trust administration
  • Financial powers of attorney
  • Healthcare Powers of Attorney/Living Wills
  • Tax planning
  • Charitable giving
  • Asset protection
  • Guardianships
  • Fiduciary litigation

SMGG’s cross-disciplinary approach to the law ensures that our estate planning clients also have access to the experience of our real estate, business, creditor’s rights, banking, and family law attorneys. When clients holding very substantial wealth or complex, closely held business or special purpose assets require help to protect, manage, and transition those assets under a variety of circumstances, we work with our Business Services Group to set up trusts and family organizations designed to meet our clients’ objectives. And our litigation attorneys handle will contests and other probate litigation, always seeking practical solutions to issues with fracture family relationships every bit as much as do divorce proceedings.
