Probate and Trust Administration
Designing, building, and delivering planning documents is just the start. We make sure to support those same documents for the rest of our clients’ lives. Its because we care and we want to make sure that it works not just when signed but when actually needed.
Why did you choose this type of law?
To help people. A good friend of mine growing up was an estate planning attorney in Delaware, Ohio and he was the reason I went to law school.
I saw the impact that he had not only on his clients, but also in the community, and I strived to be like that.
I enjoy helping protect clients’ hard-earned assets from the costs of nursing home care, and peace of mind in knowing that an estate plan will make things easier. When people come to us, they are often going through a difficult time, so for me, the best part about this job is caring for clients like they are your family.
