Nancy celebrates three decades with Barley Snyder, where she focuses her practice on estate planning, administration of estates and trusts, long-term care planning and elder law issues. She appreciates the personal nature of estate planning and combines her knowledge with compassion when advising clients about wills, trusts, powers of attorney and medical directives. She remains sensitive to the sorrow and stress that people experience after the death of a loved one, as she guides clients through probate and the process of settling an estate.

Nancy also has significant experience in counseling older clients about long-term care planning and elder law issues, especially as related to eligibility for Medicare and Medical Assistance. She represents individuals and guardianship support agencies in connection with the appointment of guardians for incapacitated persons and the subsequent duties and obligations of the court-appointed guardians.

Nancy’s husband was a special education teacher for thirty-five years. As a result, Nancy has a special interest in working with persons with disabilities and their families to plan effectively for their future through the use of special needs trusts.

Because of her own background in teaching, Nancy frequently volunteers to speak to community groups on topics related to estate planning, estate administration and long-term care.
