Wills Trusts and Estates

Wills Trusts and Estates

Eastburn and Gray provides estate, tax and succession planning to individuals, families and businesses in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Our attorneys work closely with our clients to understand their goals and concerns.

Estate Planning

Our attorneys have decades of experience in counseling individuals and families in all facets of the estate planning process. Estate planning may encompass any number of purposes, including:

  • Transfer tax planning
  • Succession planning for the ownership and management of a business
  • Philanthropy and charitable giving
  • Wealth preservation planning
  • Planning for persons with special needs

Whether our clients’ needs are simple or complex, we carefully review all tax, financial, and family circumstances, and prepare documentation appropriate to accomplish the client’s goals, from simple wills to sophisticated trusts and gifting arrangements.

Administration of Estates

Our attorneys and estate administrators work with fiduciaries and beneficiaries in all phases of estate and trust administration and settlement. Our administration services include preparation of probate papers, the preparation of inheritance, estate, and income tax returns, accounting services, general administrative matters, and post-mortem planning.

We advise and assist executors, trustees and beneficiaries in connection with the administration and distribution of estates of all sizes and levels of complexity.

Trusts and Estates Litigation

The intent of our attorneys is always to find resolutions through compromises and alternative dispute resolution methods. Unfortunately, litigation sometimes cannot be avoided. We have significant experience in handling disputes and litigation related to trusts, estates, guardianships and powers of attorney.

Our attorneys work closely with our clients to understand their goals and concerns.
