Estate Planning Lawyers for Life

Estate Planning Lawyers f…

Estate planning provides for your loved ones during your physical incapacity or after your death. Thoroughly mapped out, forward-looking estate planning is a great gift one can give his or her family.

At the Wadsworth law offices of Palecek, McIlvaine, Hoffmann & Morse, we have used our comprehensive knowledge and experience in this field to serve clients all over Medina County and surrounding areas for over 45 years. Our clients appreciate our quality counsel, personal service, attention to detail, and confidentiality.

Whether you are single or married, the preparation of an estate plan that is customized for you can help in many areas. It serves to avoid the time-consuming expense of a probate proceeding, or the need for a conservatorship if you become incapacitated. A solid estate plan might also reduce the federal estate tax, otherwise known as the death tax, and help address planning issues for end of life.

Contact our Wadsworth law offices to arrange an initial consultation with our attorneys. You can reach us by phone or e-mail.

Quality Estate Planning Counsel, Personal Service

Our skilled estate planning and probate attorneys represent your interests in estate matters, including:

  • Wills and Trusts
  • Complex Trusts
  • Trust Planning

The act of planning your estate is an ever-changing, constantly evolving process. Wills, trusts and powers of attorney change over time, according to adjustments in your family's circumstances. An estate plan should not be something that is drafted once, dispensed with and forgotten about until the time to use it.

There could be changes in your family situation, in your attitudes toward others, or changes in Ohio or federal law. Life events such as births, deaths, marriages, divorces, major losses or gains in wealth, care and rearing of minor children, and inheritances can all contribute to the need for the regular "checkups" of your estate plan. The estate plan you have today may not be suitable tomorrow.

The skilled estate planning attorneys at Palecek, McIlvaine, Hoffmann & Morse monitor the tax law changes that can impact an estate plan. We can advise you on estate planning moves that can maximize your goals and avoid tax pitfalls.

Don’t delay. We are ready to talk about your estate planning needs and can assist you shortly after you call. Contact our Wadsworth law office today.
