Estate planning

You've worked hard for your assets, and we at Sharpe & Sharpe, LLP believe you have a right to dispose of these assets as you see fit. When creating an Estate Plan, we advise Clients on how to protect their children and grandchildren, continue to support their spouses and loved ones, and how to support important causes through charitable gifts. After a detailed analysis of your estate, we can devise an effective plan that identifies, transfers, and protects your assets, minimizes unnecessary and unsavory tax waste, establishes sound guardianship for your children, ensures continued cares for your pets, provides support to philanthropic causes, and certainly most importantly, protects your loved ones you leave behind. We promise to draft a Will that best reflects your goals and desires, and establish Living Trusts if they support your Estate Planning goals.

We also offer other services in Estate Planning to ensure you and your loved ones have your personal, financial, and health affairs organized in the event of a change in circumstance. Whether you are a new parent, newlywed, parent of a young adult, or a senior citizen, a Power of Attorney can be personally tailored to provide you with a trustworthy agent who can handle your personal affairs in your absence, assistance, or in your time of need. Whether it be having access to medical information, authorization to pay bills or cash checks, or handling other personal affairs, Sharpe & Sharpe, LLP considers a solid and personalized Power of Attorney a corner stone of proper Estate Planning.

A Living Will is a third piece of proper and sound Estate Planning preparation. It is a set of written instructions expressing your wishes related to medical treatment in the event of an end-stage medical condition or state of permanent unconsciousness.  With a Living Will, an agent of your choosing honors your wishes by following the instructions that you have thoughtfully expressed.  The attorneys at Sharpe and Sharpe, LLP will guide you through this sometimes-difficult process, explaining every detail.  They recognize the importance of this document not only for the Client, but also for the family. 


Losing a loved one, whether unexpected or prepared for, can be overwhelming to navigate  the daunting and complicated Probate process alone. The knowledgeable, caring, and diligent attorneys at Sharpe & Sharpe, LLP can take charge of the Probate process, bring a sense of calm to the mourning family, and ease the weight of your loss by assisting you through the rigors of managing an Estate. The personal representative you choose is called an Executor.

We assist Executors in Pennsylvania through all steps of this complex Probate process by:

  • Creating a plan of action to probate the estate fairly and expeditiously
  • Filing the will with the Pennsylvania Probate Court
  • Closing and Opening bank accounts
  • Accompanying the Executor through the Swearing of their Oath
  • Transferring Assets from the Deceased to the Estate
  • Paying Taxes and other Debts
  • Locating Beneficiaries
  • Obtaining Renunciations
  • Hiring Professionals and Experts when necessary

Probate disputes

Sometimes, there can be a Probate dispute which further aggravates the stress and pain of your emotional loss. When Probate disputes arise, our attorneys are prepared to challenge an ambiguously or incorrectly executed will or defend your rights against disgruntled beneficiaries. Using our mediation skills, our attorneys can ease potential hostilities that may arise between family members during the emotionally charged process. We are equally ready to assertively fight for your beneficiary rights within the Pennsylvania Probate Court. When time is of the essence, know Sharpe & Sharpe, LLP is ready and willing to immediately protect your rights and avoid future conflicts.
