Estate planning offers tremendous peace of mind for residents of any age – because nobody can tell the future. Even though you may not need them for a number of years, estate planning documents ensure your financial affairs and your health care instructions will be taken care of as you wish. Our Estate Lawyers are here to help you navigate them.

Estate planning encompasses much more than just a last will and testament. Depending on your circumstances, you may need to consider multiple documents to ensure your wishes are carried out should you become sick or disabled or pass away. Our estate planning attorneys specialize in the following estate planning services:
Our experienced estate lawyers offer compassionate and personalized approach to help you plan for life's difficulties. We can help you make the most of your resources through long-term planning for retirement, medical emergencies, and the eventual transfer of assets to the next generation. We will help you to draft a will and prepare your other estate plan documents in a way that will complement your unique situation, as an expression of love and concern for the most important people in your life.
Clients frequently bring us challenging legal problems, often involving the affairs of an elderly parent. These problems would have been minimized if careful estate planning, including at a minimum a durable power of attorney and a last will and testament had been put in place years before.
You can ensure that your life's accumulation of wealth is not at the mercy of the probate court, which will distribute your estate according to Ohio probate law rather than according to your wishes. In addition, sizable court and attorney fees will be added to this process. Our goal is to facilitate the smooth transfer of an estate to the designated heirs while reducing estate taxes and streamlining the probate process - or eliminating probate altogether.
Our clients range from members of the middle-class to those with substantial assets to protect, young as well as old. If you are ready to conduct thoughtful, financially prudent estate planning to avoid problems and maximize your retirement, call us to arrange a courtesy consultation at 937-898-5583 .
