My wife and I had Wills, Power of Attorneys and financial plans created by a local law office and filed with the Recorder of Wills for the State of Delaware.  Are the fees associated with the creation and processing of the Will a valid deduction from Taxes?

Generally, no these costs are not tax deductible. If any portion of the legalfees were for tax advice that part is deductible.
