In my practice, estate planning comes in two forms — traditional estate planning and business succession planning. In other words, I help those who want to safeguard their assets and define their wishes in regard to their medical treatment, finances, business operations, and other such matters before they become incapable of doing so. Done right, a well-rounded estate and/or business succession plan can ensure that a person’s wishes are known and, in turn, prevent future legal disputes for their loved ones.
If you are severely injured or pass away, do your loved ones:
- Know where to find important paperwork?
- Know who would care for your children?
- Know how to distribute your legacy in an orderly and private fashion?
- Know your final wishes?
- Have the legal authority to fulfill your wishes?
- Know how you want to be cared for if you cannot care for yourself?
The above are just some of the questions we address when we are reviewing your estate and developing your plan.
As an Ohio estate planning lawyer, I help clients preserve their lives' work. Whether you are single, married, a business owner or otherwise, proper estate planning is essential to make sure that your loved ones know, and have the legal authority to implement, your wishes, provide for your care in elder years, and protect your legacy.
In my practice, I assist clients with estate planning in a variety of ways. For instance, I help them draft advance directives, wills, living wills, and trusts of all kinds. I guide clients in designating powers of attorney. I work with them to develop thoughtful asset protection strategies.
