At Greevy & Shoemaker we focus our practice on Elder Law and Oil and Gas Law. While these may seem like very distinct practice areas with separate, complex issues, these broad areas intersect in the need for long term planning. Whether you have saved assets over a lifetime or are receiving royalties from a gas well, planning to protect these resources for your loved ones requires the guidance and experience that we can provide.

Mr. Greevy and Mr. Shoemaker between them have litigated most of the important issues in the Marcellus gas play. They have authored hundreds of estate and Medicaid plans and administered many estates in the Northern Tier counties.

The law firm of Greevy & Shoemaker has the experience needed to provide the highest level of service to our clients. Lester L. Greevy is a member of the National Association of Elder Law Attorneys and is an experienced estate-planning and elder law attorney who has represented individuals and families in central Pennsylvania for over forty years.
With a strong background in all forms of real estate work, Greevy & Shoemaker provides clients purchasing or selling land with prompt and reasonably priced services.

Our Philosophy
We believe in prompt service and delivering good value for reasonable fees. We believe that families who have made and saved money should not be impoverished by nursing home bills and we promise to work diligently for you and your family to protect what is rightfully yours.
Not everyone goes into the Nursing Home but those who do find that the self pay cost approaches $10,000 per month and is devastating to their finances. Proper planning by a Certified Medicaid Planner™ can avoid this catastrophe.
