Latisha Bernard Schuenemann joined Leisawitz Heller in 2007. She holds a Master of Laws degree in taxation and practices in two of the firm’s practice groups: the Estates and Trusts and the Business Group. Her knowledge of tax law is an invaluable resource in helping the firm’s clients with estate planning and estate and trust administration matters. Latisha also handles a myriad of business transactions.
Outside of the office, Latisha is involved with many organizations. She serves as a member of the Pennsylvania Bar Association’s (PBA) Women in the Professional and PBA Minority Bar Committees, the Berks County Bar Association, vice chair of the Diversity in Practice of Law Committee, a board member of the Estate Planning Council of Berks County, a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, Inc., a member of the Pennsylvania Association of Elder Law Attorneys, a board member of the Berks County Community Foundation, a board member of the Gilmore Henne Community Fund, a past board member and past vice president of the Greater Reading Young Professionals, and a past member of the Berks County Libraries Task Force.
Latisha is an alumnus of Reading Central Catholic High School. She earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from Kutztown University and her Master of Science degree in Criminal Justice from St. Joseph’s University. Latisha also earned her Juris Doctor degree from Widener University School of Law and her Master of Laws degree in taxation from Villanova University School of Law.
While attending law school, Latisha worked as a legal intern at the Office of Attorney General within the Capital Litigation Section and Medicaid Fraud Section. Latisha also worked as a certified legal intern at the Harrisburg Civil Law Clinic, which provides legal services to the community. “I really enjoyed my past community service work and I’m glad the firm encourages its lawyers to get involved.”
Our firm provides a variety of elder law services. These include Medicaid asset protection planning, assistance with Medicaid applications, preparation of wills and trusts, tax planning, estate and trust administration, will contests and trust litigation, guardianships and planning for distributions from qualified retirement plans. I have a standard $500 charge for the initial consultation in most elder law matters. That initial meeting is a lot more than a "get to know you" meeting. The purpose of the initial consultation is to review the facts of your case, explain the legal issues you face and offer specific recommendations to address the challenges you are facing. Once we’ve done that, I can usually quote a fixed cost to implement whatever plan you agree upon. I am available for evening appointments, Saturday mornings and home visits by special arrangement.
