I Clean Up Estate And Probate Messes

In a 2017 study, 70 percent of the individuals surveyed had misconceptions about the value of their parents' estate. Children, on average, underestimated their parents' estate value by $278,000. It should come as no surprise then that the passing of a loved one is frequently followed by confusion, fear and a lot of questions:

  • Do we have to go through probate?
  • Is there a valid will?
  • Are there trusts?
  • Are there any debts?
  • How long will this process take?

As time passes and the process moves forward, new questions and doubts can surface, even if the estate did not pass through probate:

  • Is the executor doing his or her job?
  • Am I being cheated?
  • Is the executor stealing from the estate?

At times like this, with emotions running high, you need a calm, experienced lawyer to represent your interests, whether you are the executor or not.

Ohio's Antiquated Probate Laws

Ohio's probate laws are antiquated. The state has never adopted the Uniform Probate Code, which was completed in 1969 and was intended to be used in all 50 states. As a result, Ohio's probate process is famously time-consuming, expensive and frustrating.

However, with my vast experience in both helping clients avoid probate in Ohio and working on probate administration, I am able to resolve probate as quickly and efficiently as possible.
