Hazleton Estate Planning and Probate Attorneys

Estate planning is an important concern for nearly everyone, not just for the wealthy — and it should not be put off until retirement. Everyone should complete some degree of estate planning, including young, single people with modest assets and others in prime health.

You can't predict death, tragedy, illness or mental infirmity, but you can prepare for it. Laputka, Bayless, Ecker & Cohn, PC, in Hazleton offers comprehensive and affordable services in estate planning, elder law, estate administration and probate law. Our established firm has proudly served Luzerne County and the surrounding region for more than 60 years.
