A Practical and Thorough Approach to Planning for the Future

Estate planning is a vast field, and you have a choice of many firms and providers. At Jacobson, Julius & Harshberger, we are committed to identifying and delivering what you really need. For many people, asset protection and basic security require a few essential documents:

  • A will and/or trust devised to ensure that your money and property will be distributed according to your wishes when you pass away, with minimal complexity and financial burden for those you leave behind
  • Durable and medical power-of-attorney documents designating someone you trust to oversee the handling of your estate and make financial, health care or other key decisions if you become unable to make them yourself
  • An advance directive for health care — also referred to as a living will or medical directive — enabling you to identify conditions under which you would or would not want life support after a catastrophic accident or the onset of an incapacitating terminal illness

We are conscientious attorneys who will not “over-lawyer” your situation — nor will we oversell our services if you need specialized tax planning or other help outside our comfort zone. That said, we take great pride in our ability to develop a comprehensive legal plan to accomplish your goals, or to thoroughly assess which changes are necessary after a divorce, birth of a child, bankruptcy or other major event.

You may have a strong sense of the estate planning documents you need. You may be confused by the legal terminology and need clear guidance in clear English. We can help — beginning with a free, helpful initial consultation by telephone or at our conveniently located Harrisburg offices.

We are a debt relief agency. We help people file for bankruptcy protection under the Bankruptcy Code.
