The health and safety of our clients remains our highest priority, today and always. Even though we requested and received an exemption from the Governor’s Order of 3/19/2020 and have been deemed to play a critical role necessary to sustain life, we will continue to practice social distancing with video and/or phone conferencing to meet with our clients rather than face-to-face meetings, as well as car-side signings.

We are open for business and are here to provide you with the same service as always.

We know this is a sensitive and uncertain time, especially for our elderly clients. Let us know if there is anything we can do to help. If you have any questions on estate planning at any age, long-term care planning, Medicaid, guardianships, estate issues, special needs, or any question on how to improve the quality of life of a senior, please reach out.

We can be reached at (570) 784-5211 or through email at [email protected].
