Probate and Estate Administration
When a loved one passes away, you want to partner with a law firm that will work diligently on your behalf. Our probate law department handles estates of all sizes. The term "probate" refers to the legal proceedings that distribute the property of someone who has passed away (the "decedent"). These proceedings also ensure that all debts owed by the decent are properly handled, that any taxes that are owed are addressed.
If somebody has passed away with a will or a trust, then our law firm will follow the instructions in these documents during the probate process. If the decedent did not have a will or a trust, then Ohio statutory law will govern the property distribution.
