Experienced Attorney At Law - Free Consultations

If I request a consultation, does that mean I have to hire you?
No. The usual office consultation fee is $80.00. At the conclusion of this consultation, you can decide to hire my firm if appropriate. Sometimes clients use an office consultation to determine if they have a legal claim or simply for legal advice.

Does your firm use mediation?

Yes. My firm believes that if the parties to a dispute are able to agree to a resolution of their dispute that is better than having a disinterested 3rd party issue a ruling. As a general rule, mediation is free and, in some instances, attorneys do not attend.

What is the difference between a dissolution and a divorce?
A dissolution is an uncontested proceeding terminating a marriage. Because it is normally uncontested, the parties are required to reach an agreement on all of their issues (parenting time, division of assets, debts, child support, spousal support, etc.) In most cases, a dissolution is a shorter more economical proceeding. A divorce is a legal proceeding to terminate a marriage. Divorces normally begin as contested proceedings. However, the majority of divorce proceedings settle before going to trial. In a divorce, if the parties do not settle, the Court will allocate the parties' parental rights and obligations as well as their assets, debts, and make orders regarding child support and/or spousal support (if applicable).

Do I need a will?
In Ohio a last will and testament is a document in writing properly executed by the Testator (person creating it) that contains the Testator's instructions, intent, and requests regarding their personal property, real property, choices for executor, and appointment of a guardian (if applicable). In most cases everyone needs a will. There is a common misperception that only wealthy or affluent people need a will. However, this is not the case. Most if not all people need a last will and testament if they have any thoughts or ideas about their estate and/or property. If you do not have a will, your estate could be administered without one and without the Probate Court being aware of what your thoughts and requests actually were.

What does the term, “estate planning” mean?

Estate planning is the process of careful and thoughtful planning of your legal and medical affairs for the time periods both during your lifetime and after your death, and the crafting of legal documents that accomplish those objectives. These legal documents ensure that the legal interests of you and your loved ones are protected, and your healthcare intentions are fulfilled.Do I need a lawyer for my home closing?
Yes. Normally an attorney can ensure that the documents are correct to complete the transaction and examine the records at the courthouse to ensure that no one else has an interest in that real estate.

Does your firm accept credit cards?
Yes. We accept Visa, Mastercard and American Express only.
