What buyers need to know about title insurance

If you are purchasing a home in the Greensburg, Pennsylvania area for the first time, the process can be a bit overwhelming. There are a lot of documents and jargon involved that many people have never heard before. At Schimizzi Law, LLC, we work hard to make sure that our clients feel comfortable and knowledgeable about every step of the transaction.

Should I file for bankruptcy?

If you are facing money issues in Pennsylvania, you may be considering bankruptcy as a means of getting out of debt. While filing for bankruptcy can be very beneficial in some cases, for other people it may not be the best course of action. In this case, it’s important that you ask yourself a few vital questions before going ahead with the process.

Mandatory minimum sentencing bill advances

Although mandatory minimum prison sentences have been falling out of favor across much of the country, the Pennsylvania House is advancing a bill reintroducing them in the state. According to the Morning Call, the bill has yet to be voted on by the State Senate, but did pass the House with a recent vote, although another was scheduled before passing the bill on to the higher chamber. The Senate has previously rejected similar bills, and Gov. Tom Wolf is not in favor of mandatory minimum sentences, so it may never become law.

The importance of careful estate planning

If you do not have an estate plan, or are in the process of drafting a will or trust, it is essential to understand how vital it is to have a solid plan in place and carefully work through the process. At Schimizzi Law, we are very familiar with the benefits of creating a solid estate plan and we also know how difficult life can be for families when their loved one passes away without one. In Greenburg, and across all of Pennsylvania, numerous complications can be avoided by simply planning ahead.
