Prestigious Estate Planning Attorney Protecting the Financial Interests of Ohio Families

Planning ahead now when you’re able-bodied and mentally scrupulous is not only a smart decision, but a kind one. Your family will be spared much stress and anxiety if you leave clear instructions and well-managed assets behind for them. Since 1980, Garretson & Holcomb, LLC has helped countless individuals and couples plan their futures and support their families for generations to come. We are eager to do the same for you and yours.

Drafting a Will

A legal will is a notarized document that enumerates your instructions and awards benefits to others after you inevitably pass away. You can denote a fairly boiler-plate will covering the basic tenets of your estate, or work closely with an estate planning attorney to create a completely custom and exhaustive will. Every person is different and we will tailor your plans to your specific needs.

 

A good will is clear and specific. It leaves no room for ambiguity and covers everything from burial instructions to a delineation of debts and assets. Garretson & Holcomb, LLC can help you draft a will that eases your family’s grief as opposed to enhancing it.

Establishing a Trust

A trust is essentially the transfer of assets from one person to another or others. There are many different kinds of trusts that accomplish varying goals and are managed in a different way. For example, we can help you establish a living will that exists during your lifetime, as well as other trusts that will go into effect after your death. Trusts can be useful for managing your taxes, as well as forming a financial safety net for your spouse or children. Whatever your financial goals, we can help you establish a trust or trusts that accomplish them in a perfectly clean and legal way.
