The Elder Law Offices of Shields & Boris

Helping You Protect Your Family Legacy

About the Legal Team at Our Law Firm

Serving Clients in the North Hills, South Hills, and Beaver

The Elder Law Offices of Shields & Boris has three office locations: North Hills (Wexford), South Hills (South Fayette/Bridgeville), and Beaver.  Our attorneys have been featured on KDKA/CBS Pittsburgh and WPXI, have authored seven books, and have been recipients of numerous awards, including Lawyers of Distinction and Five-Star Wealth Managers.  We are members of the National Alliance of Attorneys for Alzheimer’s Planning, (N3AP), a national association for member attorneys who focus on Alzheimer’s Planning.  Our attorneys and all of our full-time staff have also completed the Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia Care Seminar through the National Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners.

Our firm started years ago by helping people through the loss of a loved one. However, we quickly realized, it is not all about dying.  It’s really about LIVING!!!  We found most clients are not terribly afraid of dying. The majority are actually more afraid of living too long and becoming a burden for the people they love.  As a result, we began creating COMPREHENSIVE ESTATE PLANS.  That’s what makes our firm so different.

We are proud to distinguish ourselves from other attorneys by preparing Comprehensive Estate Plans consisting of POWERFUL legal documents combined with UNIQUE financial products. With this combination we will solve your problems! We work on a FLAT FEE basis so there is no question as to what work will be completed and what the fee will be. We NEVER charge for phone calls and offer FREE initial consultations in your home, in our office, or online (via Zoom).  We make things as safe and comfortable for our clients and friends of the firm as possible.

We believe everyone has a legacy to protect. 

It is our mission to use our experience to protect your legacy from its greatest threats.  Whether that threat is from long-term care costs, in-laws, market loss, loss of income or unnecessary legal fees, court costs, insurance expenses, or taxes, we can give you peace of mind that your legacy will be protected. 

We combine our unique and time-proven legal, financial, and insurance techniques to protect what you have spent a lifetime building.  While proper legal, financial, and insurance techniques are powerful in their own right, when proper legal documents are combined with the right financial and insurance products, they become even more powerful. 

Let’s protect your legacy together.
