Our Workshops

Here at Heritage Elder Law & Estate Planning, we feel very strongly about educating individuals and families about the importance of having a good estate plan. Of course, “good” means different things to different families so at our workshops we discuss various issues that arise in our lives, some of which might resonate with one person but not another.

Our workshops are advertised in many places, including our website, mailed postcards, mailed invitations, and local newspapers. Interested attendees can RSVP on our website or by calling our office. After registering, attendees will receive a confirmation letter in the mail and also a confirmation phone call a day or two before the workshop date.

At our workshops, you’ll learn about wills, powers of attorneys, trusts and other important elements of a modern estate plan. Whether you’re attending a workshop because you saw our articles in the paper, were referred to us by a friend or family member, or simply have heard about us in the community, you’re going to learn some valuable tips which will enable you to begin the process of creating a good estate plan for you and your family.

Workshops are a great learning experience. They are interactive where attendees are free to ask questions as we discuss the “do’s and don’ts” of planning.

The learning does not end at the workshop, as everyone who attends receives a free 90-minute consultation with one of our knowledgeable attorneys. This no-obligation meeting is a great way to have your questions answered and see which estate planning vehicles will work best for your family. The consultation is known as the Vision meeting and you can learn more about it here.

Our Upcoming Events

Speaking Events

Educating the public on the ins and outs of elder law and estate planning is paramount to our mission at Heritage. Elder law and estate planning are relatively new specialties of law and we take pride in using our years of experience in these fields to be a knowledgeable community resource.

Not only does Heritage offer free informational workshops on estate planning basics at our offices throughout Western Pennsylvania, but our lawyers look forward to speaking to various professional and community groups to further educate them on the ever-changing landscape of elder law and estate planning.

The Heritage staff has experience presenting at CEU seminars for both healthcare and financial professionals, participating in trainings on guardianships and estate planning for state and local agencies, and speaking at law conferences throughout the country.

If you are interested in having one of our lawyers speak at your professional or community event, please contact us.
