When a loved one dies, it is an emotional and challenging time, as family, friends, and relatives struggle to deal with the loss and handle the legal challenges that arise. Often, one of the most pressing and complex legal issues is probate administration­–the legal process of transferring the decedent’s property or estate. Early planning can ease the burden placed on your loved ones during such a challenging time, and having a will in place or disposing of your assets before death or automatically upon death are just a few options that can help avoid unnecessary conflict and dispute.

At Crowe & Welch, our Ohio probate attorneys are compassionate and show great concern for the delicate and sensitive nature of the matter. While the probate process can be time-consuming, difficult, and expensive, our experienced team of legal professionals works closely with family members to ensure a smooth and pleasant transfer of the deceased’s assets and estate. Our probate attorneys encourage our clients to consider early planning options and purse viable alternatives that enable older adults to transfer assets upon or before death in such a manner that avoids the probate process altogether. Careful estate planning is key, and we are eager to work with clients and explore the legal options that are available to them.
