A death in the family is normally a time for grieving a loss and regrouping. It is also a time with many legal duties to fulfill. While your family is grieving, who wants to handle the responsibilities associated with estate administration? What if there is a dispute or contention that you made a mistake as personal representative or executor? Our Ohio law firm can help you through these and other challenges that arise when a loved one dies.

Most people do not know what to do to close an estate, and need the help of a probate lawyer. Furthermore, other pressing issues in the family can be overwhelming and an attorney's guidance and assistance become vital.
