Leonard L. Shober

Leonard L. Shober has represented clients in their estates and tax matters for the past 40 years. He began his legal career in an estate planning practice. However, his interest in taxes and estate planning led him to pursue a Master of Laws (LLM) from Temple, which he completed in 1994. Len continued his estate and tax practice, ultimately focusing on the needs of the elderly and disabled. At Shober & Rock, Len focuses on elder law, tax and estate planning, and estate and Trust administration.

Len attended Temple University School of Law and graduated in 1986 with honors. He was awarded the prestigious Bureau of National Affairs (BNA) Award for his scholastic performance in his senior year.

Prior to law school, Len was a social worker and family counselor with a degree in Psychology from LaSalle University, where he graduated cum laude. Both during and after college, Len worked in the Department of Psychology as a psychological testing administrator and later as a social worker and family counselor at Eagleville Hospital. Len later worked as head of the Social Work Department at Interim House, a long-term residential drug and alcohol program for addicted women. Len’s social work and counseling background has greatly assisted his work with the elderly and families in crisis.
