In today's world, with the availability of documents on the Internet, you may believe that you can successfully plan for the distribution of your property upon death by filling in the blanks of an online will or trust document. The reality, unfortunately, is that most of these documents are boilerplate and cannot be easily adapted to your unique situation. In addition, many of them are so generic that they don't account for the differences from one state to the next. It is always in your best long-term interests to hire an experienced attorney to help you put the best estate plan in place.

At the office of Cunningham & Chernicoff, P.C., we bring more than 130 years of combined legal experience to people throughout central Pennsylvania.

Our Estate Planning Practice
We understand the emotional challenges that come with estate planning, which forces you to consider your own mortality. We work hard to minimize your anxiety, helping you look instead at the ways you can make circumstances easier for your loved ones through sound planning.
We will take the time to learn as much as we can about your financial situation, as well as your goals, so that we can draft documents that meet your needs. We will help you understand the different strategies for passing on property, from the use of dispositive documents such as wills to the retitling of property to avoid probate or lifetime gifting. We will also prepare and execute the documents necessary to put your estate plan in place.
We strongly advise people not to rely on form documents found online or in a bookstore. We handle the administration of many estates and have never successfully probated a will that came off the Internet.
