Expertly crafted estate planning for the LGBTQ community in PA and NJ.
What most people don’t realize is you already have a plan. The problem is if you didn’t create the documents yourself, your “plan” will follow intestate succession laws — meaning if you are incapacitated or pass away, your next of kin will take control of your estate. The person put in charge to make financial and medical decisions on your behalf will be decided by a judge — not you.
An estate plan ensures your decisions are carried out how you want.
No contested probate. No conflict. No questions. Your loved ones will know what to do next because you took the necessary steps to shield them from the stress of not knowing what you would have wanted.
Give them peace and clarity. Create an estate plan that perfectly outlines your goals and last wishes.
Dedicated family lawyer with a special focus on collaborative, conflict-free divorce.
Obergefell v. Hodges was the landmark 2015 civil rights case that made marriage a fundamental right to all, including same-sex couples. Thanks to the ruling, LGBTQ couples who tie the knot can now claim the unlimited marital exemption for federal estate and gift taxes.
So, while “gay marriage” may now be a thing, “gay divorce” is a reality, too.
No one wins during a high conflict divorce. Well, except maybe the lawyers. Opt out of the financial and emotional stress that comes with separation and get help navigating this difficult time with an LGBT divorce lawyer that will help you move on with your life.
The journey through your separation doesn’t have to be a solo trip. A separation agreement can be just what you need to get your life back. We can show you how it works.

I enthusiastically recommend Angela
I enthusiastically recommend Angela Giampolo Esq. for her attention to detail, and her professional yet personal touch. Angela handled my Last Will and Testament, my Living Will, and a Real Estate purchase. She made the process easy and stress free. She also answered any concerns/issues I had with empathy and a steady hand. Recently, I needed to reach out for advice and help out of the blue, and she responded to me immediately. Assisting me through a stressful moment in my life, that ended up not being the problem it could have been, due to her great work. I am confident that my experience is not an anomaly – each and every person will receive the same respectful, thorough, proficient service. The LGBTQA community in Philadelphia is blessed to have her in our corner!
Angela is as patient as she is knowledgeable
Estate planning is one of the most difficult thing I have ever done. We all work hard for our money and that should be respected in life and after it. It’s so complex it is easy to find any excuse to not do it. Angela Giampolo made me feel completely at ease. We had a discussion of assets and I was given alternatives for distribution. We discussed estate taxes and set up an option that made the most sense for me- a trust. And after that we talked about power of attorney, living will and a trust to care for my dog when I am gone. Angela is as patient as she is knowledgeable. I am so glad I found her and used her legal services. End of life planning is hard. Angela made it much easier. She is the best there is.
She made a difficult and confusing process so easy
Angela is the best! She made a difficult and confusing process so easy to go through! She is truly always looking out for her client’s best interests!
I didn’t have to worry about anything
I reached out to Angela when the pandemic shutdown threw a major wrench in divorce proceedings. Within a day of my initial inquiry she had already reached out to me and gotten together my paperwork. She was efficient and incredibly supportive of me through this process. Got everything perfectly streamlined and I didn’t have to worry about anything. So grateful to her and I cannot recommend her enough. She takes care of everything, even in the midst of a pandemic. I didn’t have to go down to the city once. She did everything electronically. An awesome lawyer.
