Estate Planning

Attorney Anthou can carefully craft any estate planning, trust, or related documents you, your family members, or your business may require. Ranging from a basic will or power of attorney to a full estate plan, including a personal or family trust, which could be as specific or broad as you require and which could be custom to fit your particular needs and concerns.

When it comes to something as important as estate planning, you’ll want someone who can patiently take the time to understand the uniqueness of your situation. Someone who can ask the right questions and provide the right answers. Someone who can design a flexible, cost-effective, and efficient plan that can be easily modified or amended over time, as situations may require, due to unexpected changes. Someone you can trust. Someone who is by your side. 

Mr. Anthou will prepare new or review any existing documents: estate plan, trust, will, power of attorney, or health care directive (living will) for a reasonable fee which can also be credited towards any future service you may require. 

Anthou Legal also welcomes new estate administration, and probate clients, and often makes arrangements to visit clients at their homes, nursing home, hospital, or other treatment facilities, as may be necessary and expedient best to serve the client’s best interests and needs.

Land Use / Zoning

Need assistance with a new development, building, or existing construction project?

We can successfully guide you through the maze of regulatory red tape to ensure compliance and not violate local planning, use, or zoning laws. Although some municipalities now ascribe to standardized national codes, most have widely differing rules and certain special exceptions, requiring specific permits and procedures for various buildings and areas. We can help you resolve disputes from boroughs, townships, cities, the state or PENNDOT regarding the use or development of residential, commercial, or other property.

Eminent Domain

If a governmental or other entity is attempting to force the sale or transfer of your property, either with or without your consent, you need someone who understands Pennsylvania’s regulations on Eminent Domain and the defense of property owners’ rights. We help defend and protect property owners threatened by eminent domain and ensure that each property owner is compensated to the fullest extent allowable by law.
