Every family and indeed every individual should build out their estate with a wide range of legal options, such as wills, trusts, and powers of attorney among other potential options. But even though the number of legal options is ultimately finite, there are an infinite number of circumstances that could be involved in any estate plan. No two families will be the same; no two wills will be the same; no two trusts are the same. Each and every estate has to be dealt with individually and addressed in a specific manner.
Given the wide range of outcomes and options, it is imperative that anyone who is drafting a will or putting together their estate gets in touch with an experienced attorney to help them. Without legal help, you run the risk of putting forth an estate that doesn't fully capture your wishes, or even runs afoul of the law.
At Lindhorst & Dreidame, we have helped families all across Cincinnati and Ohio with their estates. Whether they have a complicated family network, a family business, complex assets or property, or potential legal issues with their assets and property, we stand ready to advocate for you, your loved ones and your estate.
Remember that your estate will enter probate, even though you can take many steps to limit your estate's exposure during probate. Probate is a complicated matter in and of itself, so if your estate runs into a dispute during this process, or if your estate is legally challenged by a benefactor or potential beneficiary, then talk to an attorney.
