Steinbacher, Goodall & Yurchak, an elder law firm with current locations in State College, Wilkes-Barre, Williamsport, Wyalusing and Wysox, Pa., is pleased to announce the opening of a new office, located at 1913 East Pleasant Valley Blvd. in Altoona. The firm will begin seeing new and prospective clients in this new location on Wednesday, October 4, 2023. This marks the sixth location for SGY, which opened another new office earlier this month in Wilkes-Barre. The Altoona office can be reached at 814-900-7613.

“We have been serving clients from the greater Altoona and Blair County areas for several years now, ever since the firm moved into State College in 2015,” said Attorney Jenna Franks, a partner at the firm. “This new office in Altoona will allow us to better serve these clients that live closer to Altoona, as well as further grow our practice and the number of people we’ll be able to assist in the future with their various estate and long-term care planning needs.”  

Steinbacher, Goodall & Yurchak, an elder law firm with current locations in State College, Williamsport, Wyalusing and Wysox, Pa., is pleased to announce the opening of its fifth office, located at 273 East Northampton St. in Wilkes-Barre. Additionally, SGY welcomes Attorney Stacey Acri to its staff as an associate attorney. Attorney Acri comes to SGY from the Acri Law Firm in Wilkes-Barre, Pa. and has been practicing law for 25 years, including the last 16 in Pennsylvania. The new office will open and Attorney Acri will begin seeing clients on September 11, 2023. The Wilkes-Barre office can be reached at 570-266-7034.

“We are thrilled to be growing our firm into Wilkes-Barre and Luzerne County, where we look forward to providing the same high-quality service that our clients in Williamsport, State College and Bradford County have come to expect over the last two decades, as we help them plan for their second half of life,” said Attorney Landon Hodges, a partner at the firm. “We’re also very excited to have Stacey join our firm and focus her entire practice on elder law, while also maintaining her presence in her community where she will be able to continue serving her friends and neighbors.”

Attorneys Julie Steinbacher, Landon Hodges and Jenna Franks, all partners at the elder law firm of Steinbacher, Goodall & Yurchak, were sworn into the U.S. Supreme Court Bar during a ceremony held at the Court in Washington, D.C. earlier this year. 

Being admitted to the Supreme Court to practice before the Court allows them to argue cases before the Court - essentially practice law in its jurisdiction. Though far more attorneys are admitted to the Court than will actually ever argue a case before it, it nonetheless is considered a tremendous accomplishment and one of the greatest honors of a career for any attorney. 

To qualify for admission to the U.S. Supreme Court Bar, an attorney must already be admitted to practice law in the highest court of a state, commonwealth or territory for at least three years. All three attorneys are already members of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court Bar. They also must be sponsored by two current members of the U.S. Supreme Court Bar.
