Cincinnati Estate Planning Lawyers
No two families have the same assets, the same individuals or the same goals. At Lindhorst & Dreidame, in Cincinnati, Ohio, our lawyers provide estate planning services that are based on your family’s unique situation.
An estate plan consists of several individual documents, which work together to accomplish your goals. Some of the basic components of an estate plan include:
- A will: The purpose of a will is to plan for the transfer of your assets to your beneficiaries upon your death. Your will can also name a guardian for your minor children if both you and your spouse should die.
- Trusts: Trusts are powerful estate planning tools that can be used to accomplish a variety of goals, such as preservation of assets, elimination or minimization of estate taxes, and more. Learn more about wills and trusts.
- A durable power of attorney: A durable power of attorney allows a trusted family member to step into your shoes and make decisions for you if you should become incapacitated or disabled.
- A living will: A living will allows you to tell family members and medical professionals whether you want feeding tubes and other extraordinary measures to keep you alive if you are in an end-of-life situation with no hope of recovery.
Our lawyers will take the time to learn about your assets, your family and your goals. Then we draft documents that are the most advantageous for your situations. We serve families in the greater Cincinnati metropolitan area, Southwest Ohio and northern Kentucky.
We are experienced in working with the blended families, owners of closely held or family businesses, families who have children with special needs, and families who are concerned about protecting their assets from taxation, disability and other events.
