Experienced Ohio Trust and Estates Attorney
With 38 years of experience, I possesses in-depth knowledge about all aspects of trusts and estate issues, including:
I can advise you on the best approach to your estate planning. One of my strengths is the ability to translate complicated legal concepts into understandable words and ideas. I thoroughly analyze your estate and strategize the best means of transferring your assets, minimizing taxes, establishing guardianship for your children, supporting personal philanthropic causes and protecting your loved ones. I can draft a will that reflects your desires and establish living trusts if they would be beneficial to your estate.
I apply my knowledge about Ohio probate courts to guide you through the complex process of probating a will. I assist executors in all steps of the process, including:
When disputes occur between beneficiaries, I represent your interests. I have the extensive knowledge to challenge invalid wills or to defend valid wills against the improper assertions of dissatisfied beneficiaries. I can negotiate between beneficiaries to preserve relationships or scrupulously pursue your rights in court when necessary.
