Proactively Helping Families With Estate Planning And Probate

At Kelley & Ferraro, LLP, we have dedicated our careers to helping families affected by mesothelioma, medical malpractice, accidents and defective products pursue justice and compensation. For over 20 years, we have also had a probate department that has represented families in asbestos litigation after losing loved ones.

Now, we are pleased to offer Ohio estate planning services to make end-of-life decisions and final wishes known to family members prior to death. This can relieve much of the emotional toll of losing a loved one and also provide practical guidance about what the decedent wanted. Please find out how we may be able to help you plan ahead and make decisions that will protect your loved ones and your estate.

An Estate Plan Is For Everyone, Regardless Of Their Financial Status

Too many people put off estate planning because they think they do not have enough money or assets to warrant an estate plan. It is important to remember that estate planning is not just about your estate; it is also about planning for end-of-life care, final wishes and naming guardians for minor children.

We can help you with the creation of:

  • A last will and testament
  • Financial powers of attorney
  • Health care powers of attorney
  • A living will

Our lawyers will work with you at each step of the process to help you make informed decisions about your future and the future of your family.

Compassionate, Experienced Ohio Probate Representation

After the death of a loved one, the executor of the estate has a lengthy and complex task ahead of them. While you can attempt this on your own, it is often a good idea to work with an attorney, especially for larger estates. In Ohio, the costs of a probate attorney are paid out of state funds, not the decedent’s estate.

We can help executors with every stage of the probate process, from opening the estate and filing the will to paying the bills and distributing the assets. In addition, we still provide representation to families of mesothelioma victims in asbestos-related litigation. We are passionate about securing the financial compensation that these families need to move forward.
