Pittsburgh & Western PA Estate Planning Attorney

Help for Guardianships, Special Needs Planning & Revocable Trusts

My name is John D'Onofrio, and as the founder of D'Onofrio Law Office, P.C., I have been providing clients with legal assistance for more than 34 years, always striving to professionally and timely serve my clients-the friendly residents of Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania.

Through years of experience working in the legal field, I have gained insight and knowledge on a wide variety of estate planning and probate matters. As such, I am here to provide the quality legal representation you need.

I am Passionate About Special Needs Planning & Guardianship

While I focus on helping a variety of clients create their estate plans, I am especially passionate about special needs planning. Throughout my legal career, it has been my goal to raise awareness to the specific legal process available to protect special needs individuals. I aim to provide every family who has a special needs member with a professional special needs plan which will secure the future needs of the disabled family member.

When your child or loved one has special needs, it's important to create a plan for their future protection. Most parents wonder what would happen to their special needs child if they could no longer care for them. With special needs planning, you can use a variety of legal methods, most specifically a special needs trust, to safely put money away for your special needs child or special needs family member and they will still qualify for their government benefits.

I can also assist you with guardianship matters. Pennsylvania considers any person over the age of 18 an emancipated adult, regardless of their disabilities or needs. For this reason, I encourage families to pursue a guardianship petition for their special loved one.

Creating the Right Trust for Your Family

I can assist you with preparing a variety of trusts such as a revocable living trust, irrevocable life insurance trust, family dynasty trust, charitable trust, and other trust agreements suited to your specific needs. Additionally I am available to assist with settling a trust, handling the estate taxes, and inheritance taxes and other debts that might need to be settled before the trust assets or probate assets are distributed.

Let My Firm Assist with Your Unique Situation

Whether you want to create a trust for your child's financial security or shield your assets from creditors, I am available to help. I can also assist your family throughout the probate process. When you enlist my services, I will provide you with the support you need for your specific situation, always aiming for professionalism and efficiency.
