Parma Ohio Estate Planning Lawyer

Serving Individuals and Families in Northeast Ohio Since 1989

Estate Planning is not often the first thing a person has on their to-do list. However, it is reassuring to know that in the event of a tragedy, you have made your wishes clear regarding issues such as providing for a guardian for your children and ensuring your estate will be divided among your family members and loved ones.

At the law office of Kirner & Boldt Co., L.P.A. in North Royalton, Ohio, we can help you develop the right estate plan, whether it involves a simple will, or a trust, or retitling of assets to avoid probate. We recommend that you also provide for designation of agents to assist you during your lifetime should you become incapable or unable to handle your financial affairs or health care decisions.

Achieve Goals in a Timely, Cost-Effective and Thorough Manner

Our lawyers take the time to get to know you so that we can help you clarify what is important. We ask the questions that need to be asked and then help create a plan that best achieves your goals in as timely, thorough and cost-effective manner as we can. Our estate planning services include:

  • Durable Powers of Attorney: If you are incapacitated and cannot make health care or financial decisions for yourself, you can designate a surrogate to stand in your place to act in your best interests.
  • Wills: A Last Will and Testament designates how you wish your estate to be divided upon your death.
  • Donor Registration: This addresses whether you choose to be an organ donor upon your death.
  • Trusts: We help our clients determine which trust will best suit their needs while minimizing estate taxes. Trusts can include special needs trusts, educational trusts and trusts that skip a generation and more.
  • Elder Law and Medicaid Planning: We help clients protect their assets, while planning for the cost of nursing home, other health care, or estate taxes.
  • Other areas include: guardianship trustee issues and will contests, and probate and estate administration.
  • Living Will: A Living Will is your declaration under Ohio law that you do not want your life to be artificially prolonged or heroic measures taken to sustain your life at the time of a terminal illness or when you are in a permanently unconscious state.
  • Durable Powers of Attorney for Finances: Your Durable General Power of Attorney and Nomination of Guardian is a legal document that allows you to name another individual to take all legal action on your behalf in your name, in the same capacity as you would do for yourself. It may contain whatever limitations you may specify.
  • Durable Powers of Attorney for Health Care: Your Health Care Power of Attorney designates your Agent to make health care decisions for you should you be unable to make them for yourself.
