Jennifer primarily focuses her practice in the areas of estate planning and estate administration. Her estate planning work involves counseling clients through the planning process regarding the management of their assets after their passing so their intentions are carried out and their loved ones are cared for once they have passed. This process often involves the drafting of various key documents such as a last will and testament, powers of attorney, advance directives and trusts. In her estate administration work, Jennifer assists and guides the executors of estates to successfully complete the probate process so estates may be properly assessed, taxed and distributed. Jennifer is also frequently involved in estate litigation, including will contests and guardianship proceedings, and appears frequently before the Orphans’ Court of Philadelphia and the surrounding counties.
In addition, Jennifer handles commercial litigation and other business matters, including shareholder disputes, landlord/tenant disputes, foreclosure and creditors’ rights for banks and lenders, and related collection matters. She also works with other attorneys in the Firm to counsel clients regarding business law issues to reduce liability and exposure for these clients.
The following is a small sampling of matters that Jennifer has successfully handled for clients:
