What is Estate Planning?

Estate planning is the process of assisting clients in arranging and preparing their affairs in the event of injury, illness, incapacity, or death.

Our Ohio law firm provides a full range of estate planning services for individuals and families of all types, from the very basic to the advanced. Our Dayton estate planning lawyers are ready to take your case.

If you were to pass away today….

  • Who would care for your minor children?
  • Who would represent your estate?
  • Would your estate owe any federal or state taxes?

If you became incapacitated today…

  • Who would handle your day-to-day decisions?
  • Who would take over your business decisions?
  • Who would make your health care decisions?
