Estate & Probate, Municipal Law & Business Litigation

Gerry Evashavik

With more than 55 years of experience as an Estate and Probate Attorney in Pittsburgh, I understand the importance of protecting your assets and planning for both you and your family's future.  Estate planning is not just for the privileged few; it extends far beyond protecting bank accounts and establishing trust funds.  It is for every person who wants to make thoughtful decisions today about unforeseeable life events.  Basic estate planning services include:

  • Power of Attorney for Health Care/Living Wills
  • Power of Attorney for Financial Needs
  • Wills
  • Establish Trusts
  • Gifting Criteria
  • Asset and Estate Protection

My legal expertise is not limited to estate planning and probate law.  I have extensive experience in business litigation and civil law having tried more than 500 civil cases to jury verdict.  My multi-dimensional understanding and respect of the law  has allowed me to successfully practice not only elder law, business litigation and civil law, it has given me the opportunity to work as a municipal solicitor with numerous municipalities for more than 5 decades.  It is this confluence of experience in multiple areas of the law that has given me the compassion, insight and guidance needed to help both individuals and local governments.
