Moon Township Estate Planning Lawyer
Protect Your Assets, Your Family & Your Future
As a Moon Township estate planning attorney and founder of the D'Onofrio
Law Office, I have over 30 years of experience helping the residents of
Moon Township and all throughout Allegheny County. I am passionate about
helping people and always strive to serve my clients professionally and
in a timely manner. Since estate planning is an ongoing process which
may require amendments and changes as life circumstances change for my
clients, I often build long-lasting relationships with my clients which
I strongly value.
Estate planning is a process which involves planning for the distribution of one's

Without an estate plan, your hard-earned assets are distributed according
to the state's intestate succession laws (dying without a will), which
may not be the way that you would have wanted.
