I am, at my core, a business attorney. I have always been a businessman, and I’ve always been fascinated by the legal proceedings that relate to business. Through my work, though, I’ve discovered that several of my legal skills can benefit both business owners and non-business owners alike. One of those skills is preemptive planning. In my practice, this 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.
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 if you wish to avoid tax pitfalls, establish business continuity, provide for your 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. And I handle matters related to guardianship.
