Estate Planning & Administration

At Zator Law, we apply our solid foundation in Estate Planning to designing strategies and plans aimed at protecting and distributing our clients’ assets and establishing directives unique to each individual and business.  To do this, we study the many nuances in our clients’ finances, businesses, family backgrounds, and wealth-transfer goals.  We then customize a plan of action, thereby enabling them to make educated decisions now about how such things as their hard-earned assets, property, business concerns, and healthcare will be handled in the future—and by whom.  As a full-service Estate Planning & Administration firm, we also provide probate and estate administration, assisting executors and beneficiaries with efficiently navigating this challenging process.
