FAMILY LAW

It’s what makes us, us: an unusually deep and eclectic pool of talent – each attorney a specialist in his or her field – whether tax or corporate law, or family or criminal law – all under one roof. And though none of that is unusual for a top law firm, there is one very important difference: our roof is down the block – and not deep in the city.  

Dischell Bartle Dooley opened in the year of our nation's bicentennial, and though our service area has grown by

leaps and bounds since, we (as well as our hearts and homes and families and little league teams, etc.) remain devoted to Southeastern Pennsylvania.

40 years later, our success – from new clients and new acquisitions (new additions to the DBD family) still comes by way of great word of mouth, not advertising. So in a way, we’re living/breathing proof that our tagline, “results matter,” rings true.  And we wouldn't have it any other way.

Aretha Franklin’s Handwritten Wills Show The Benefit Of Formal Wills

When Aretha Franklin died last August, lawyers said she did not have a will. But in early May, the singer’s family found three handwritten wills in her Detroit home. A hearing is now scheduled in probate court in mid-June.

Dischell Bartle Dooley partner Jack Dooley says handwritten wills are considered valid. A holographic will, as a handwritten will is called, must be in the handwriting of the testator, the person making the will, and must be signed at the end. Evidence that the person writing the will lacked capacity is permitted to be entered as part of a challenge to the will, Dooley said.
