Estate Planning and Probate Practice Areas
Whether you are single, married, have children, or grandchildren, you should have a Last Will & Testament and other basic estate planning documents in place to ensure that your wishes for your health care and property disposition are followed. Here are just a few of the matters and documents DeLeo Law can help you with:
- Last Will & Testament
- Durable Power of Attorney
- Advance Medical Directives
- Living Will
- Guardianship Appointment

Trusts can be used in a variety of different circumstances to provide for and protect your family. For example, trusts can be used for protecting assets for minor children, avoiding probate, minimizing taxes, protecting assets from creditors of your beneficiaries, and protecting the assets of individuals with special needs. Contact us to discuss your needs.
If your life is touched by someone with special needs, you have important considerations to take into account in providing for that individual. For instance, if you have a minor child with special needs, in many circumstances, they will be legally entitled to make their own decisions once they reach the age of majority. This may or may not present issues for your family. Additionally, if your loved one receives funds from government programs you may be able to establish a special needs trust as a way to supplement those benefits. Contact us to discuss your needs.
While many individuals quite commonly enter into second marriages and blend their families together, the law has not caught up with this commonality. You need to make sure you have an estate plan in place to protect your family in line with your wishes, as opposed to the law’s design. Contact us to discuss your situation.
We understand the the death of a loved one is an emotionally stressful time for a family. We strive to carry some of the burden by handling the probate of your loved one’s estate as efficiently as possible.

What DeLeo Law Firm’s Estate Planning Clients Say
“Working with Trish took a lot of stress out of our estate planning. My husband and I needed a will and all the other “no one wants to talk about” papers. Trish took the time to explain what we needed, what we didn’t need, why, and how to proceed. We met twice initially and then a final time where she presented us with the official documents and provided us with witnesses to oversee signing.
Trish is a true professional. She leaves no stone unturned and is not afraid to ask the tough questions, yet she does so in a non assuming and non judgmental way. She is the lawyer you want on your side!”
“My husband and I used DeLeo Law Firm, LLC to prepare our wills and powers of attorney. We have four small children, so we really didn’t want to think about any of it. However, Trish made the process very comfortable for us. We are happy to finally have the proper documents in place.”
