Estate Planning Lawyers in Southern Ohio

As we have all learned from the national news within the last few years, dividing your property after your passing can cause some of the most painful and complicated moments of anyone’s life. But planning and managing your estate’s assets does not have to be like that. For close to 30 years, I have provided sound legal guidance to my clients with respect to their estate issues, minimizing their aggravation, and maximizing their options. My office, The Law Firm of Richard M. Lewis, helps clients manage their assets no matter how complexly those assets may be held or how highly they may be valued.

Probate Attorneys

My firm assists clients with their wills and trusts and the settlement of their estates. The Ohio Trust Act, enacted in March 2013 has introduced new considerations on trusts. Whether your estate involves the assets commonly held by most people or your estate involves unusual and high-value assets, the attorneys at The Law Firm of Richard M. Lewis can help you.

We serve clients throughout southern Ohio, including the towns of Jackson, Wellston, Vinton, Gallipolis, Chillicothe and beyond.

Without a specific set of rules for people to follow after your passing, even well-intentioned relatives can mismanage your estate or divide property in ways that you would not have wanted. Particularly if you feel overwhelmed at the thought of preparing for and managing these difficult issues, we can manage the estate planning process on your behalf. We work with you to craft the estate planning solution that achieves your legal goals with respect to your estate. A well-crafted will or trust, for instance, can ensure that your wishes are implemented even if strong-willed family members wish to handle your estate differently.
