“As a first-time Executor, I found myself completely overwhelmed by the probate procedures and estate tax laws. The estate process for Pennsylvania, and Federal tax laws can be very confusing. My friend, Tom Panzer referred me to Stephanie Henrick for assistance and guidance. Ms. Henrick and her staff were not only knowledgeable and professionals throughout the entire process; but they exhibited extreme patience and compassion for my endless questions. They were able to thoroughly explain the laws to me and guide me though the steps of the probate procedures. I would strongly recommend Ms. Henrick for anyone executing a will, or in need of estate planning.” – Steve B.
