Count on Help and Guidance From Attorney Nenni
Estate planning and administration involve the preparation of documents to direct the distribution of personal assets upon death or other incapacitating events. This is done through the drafting Wills, trusts, powers of attorney, and other related documents. Attorney Nenni will make sure your loved ones are protected after you are gone.
Protect Your Loved Ones After You Are Gone
In Pennsylvania, any person over the age of 18 and of sound mind may make a Will. Each Will is a unique and personalized document that depends on the person's wishes. However, state law provides certain requirements for the execution, revocation, and modifications of Wills. An attorney experienced in the area of estate planning can help you to be sure that, in the event of your death, your wishes concerning the distribution of your estate are followed.
A trust is a type of legal entity which is used to hold legal title to property for the benefit of one or more persons. Many types of trusts can be created under Pennsylvania law, including living trusts (revocable trusts), testamentary trusts (under your Will), and charitable trusts, to name a few. An attorney experienced in the area of estate planning can help you to be sure that, in the event of your death, your wishes concerning the distribution of your estate are followed.
Power of Attorney
Through a power of attorney, you can give someone else (your agent) the power to act on your behalf. Most people create this document so that their agent can manage their personal affairs in the event they become incapacitated. A power of attorney is an extremely powerful document. It provides your agent with broad powers to handle your property and make various other decisions without your knowledge.
Healthcare Power of Attorney
Through a healthcare power of attorney, you can give someone the power to make medical decisions on your behalf when you are medically unable to do so. A healthcare power of attorney is a document that is prepared as part of our estate planning package.
A Living Will (Advanced Healthcare Directive) lets you make decisions about your healthcare in the event that you can no longer make them on your own and if you're permanently unconscious or have an end-stage medical condition. A Living Will does not go onto effect until such time as your doctor determines that you are no longer able to make or communicate your health care decisions, and you are permanently unconscious or have an end-stage medical condition.
Probate is the actual process that transfers legal title of property from the estate of the person who has died (the "decedent") to his or her proper beneficiaries. The term "probate" also refers to proving the existence of a valid Will or determining and (proving) who are the decedent’s legal heirs are if there is no Will.

About Attorney Nenni
I have been practicing law in the Lehigh Valley since 1986.
When I first arrived in Bethlehem, I took the larger firm route and was employed by larger firms for the first half of my legal career. When I opened my private "solo" practice; for the first time, I truly understood what it meant to be an attorney and "counselor" at law. I understand that retaining the services of an attorney can be emotionally exhausting and an incredibly trying time.
I know and understand that your legal matter is of great importance to you. I promise you that your case, no matter how large or small, will be given my prompt attention. I will do my best to ensure that your experience with an attorney is as pleasant as it can be under the circumstances and I will give you the personalized attention you deserve.
Please feel free to contact me at your convenience to discuss your case and, if circumstances warrant, to schedule an appointment to discuss the facts of your case.
