Probate Administration And Estate Planning

After a loved one dies, it can be difficult to know what steps to take to make sure your loved one's estate is being handled correctly. Our attorneys at Kuenzi/Somogyi can guide you through this process with the compassion and skilled legal advice you need during this emotional time in your life.

Probate Administration And How We Can Help

Probate is the legal process of paying a person's debts and distributing the remaining real estate and assets upon death through probate court. This process can be very complex. Our lawyers have decades of experience helping families with the probate process in Ohio. We can make sure all debts are paid and that the remaining assets and real estate are accurately distributed.

Estate Planning And What Documents You Need

A will is instrumental in determining how your assets will be distributed after you pass away. If you die without a will, the probate court will distribute your estate according to Ohio laws. To make sure your wishes are known and carried out, it is essential to have an estate plan.

Our attorneys have helped many individuals and families plan for the future by creating an estate plan. We will carefully review your personal situation and future goals to determine what documents should be included in your estate plan. An estate can include a variety of documents, which can include:

  • A will
  • A power of attorney
  • A living will or health care power of attorney
  • A trust

We can review your situation to make sure your estate plan protects your wishes and preserves your wealth.

Handling Your Needs With Compassion

Our lawyers will guide you through this process with compassion. We understand how difficult this can be, especially if you recently lost a loved one. You can trust us to handle everything for you so you can focus on remembering your loved ones and protecting your future.
