Michael Daiello – Probate Attorney 

I founded my firm in 2017 because I care about helping families resolve estate challenges after the passing of a loved one. My law career began in 2007 upon graduating from the Syracuse University College of Law. After more than a decade of experience in probate and estate administration, I concentrated my practice on serving families faced with difficult estate matters.

The probate process can take an emotional toll on a family. My approach is compassionate and patient, guiding you gently through the complexities of the probate process.

I reside in West Chester with my wife Heather and three young children. We enjoy spending our weekends at the beach and exploring nature preserves throughout Pennsylvania.

WHAT OUR PROBATE LAW FIRM CAN DO FOR YOU

Estate Administration

The Pennsylvania Probate Law Firm has helped many families complete the estate process. Probate is the process of settling a loved one’s legal and financial affairs according to the law. We are here to walk you through probate and ensure your loved one’s estate is done right.

Many people leave a Will that states how the estate should be handled. Other people pass away with no Will. Although each estate is different, our clients often have common concerns. Many estates involve real estate which the family may wish to either keep or sell. Some estates have highly complex issues such as passing inheritance to a minor or where the loved one held a business interest.

We represent families with all types of estates. Our goal is to help reach agreements about how the estate should be handled and protect the estate representative from legal pitfalls.

Overcome Estate Property Roadblocks

Real estate is often the largest asset in a person’s estate. Estates that have real estate can complicate the probate process. Retitling of an estate property can be difficult, especially if multiple family members inherit the property. Some estate properties have title problems such as liens or mortgages which block a sale. Other properties may be occupied by someone who does not have a right to reside in the property.

We help resolve legal roadblocks that prevent the sale or retitling of an estate property. We aim to settle the issues amicably, but make use of tough litigation strategies when necessary. Our goal is to help estate representatives take full control of the estate property so the deceased’s wishes can be carried out.
