Plotnick & Ellis, P.C. is a small but unique suburban law firm with a strong emphasis on helping people plan their estates, and settle the estates of deceased persons, as well as assisting our clients with their business and real estate needs.

We find that many people spend their entire lifetime creating an estate for their family, but do not take the time to make certain that their heirs receive their assets in the most beneficial manner. We therefore stress what we call “people planning” as well as tax planning, and we bring over 50 years of experience to meet our clients’ needs.

We can also be of considerable help to Executors, Administrators, and Trustees in the administration of Decedents’ Estates. In addition to collecting assets, paying outstanding obligations, including State and Federal death taxes, preparing death tax returns and making distributions to beneficiaries, there can be opportunities for “post death” planning, often overlooked without proper legal advice.

Our attorneys have written books and articles on planning for and settling the estates of deceased persons, and have lectured extensively to the public, to other attorneys and to accountants. We have the experience and the credentials, as well as the compassion and understanding, to meet the individual needs of each client, and have recently been named “Best in Client Satisfaction” by Philadelphia Magazine.

We welcome your inquiries.
