Business Counseling


Business counseling requires a good corporate counsel that has experience with start-ups, day-to-day business management and operations, and succession planning and mergers, acquisitions and business sales.  Corporate counsel should protect your business interests and help you achieve your professional goals.  Business start-ups typically require filing Articles of Organization or Articles of Incorporation, executing an Operating Agreement or Bylaws, distributing membership unit certificates or stock certificates and many related services.  Contact us today to speak with business attorney for businesses in Cleveland, Akron, Medina and all surrounding areas.

Estate Planning


Estate planning typically includes a will, trust, healthcare planning documents and many related documents.  Estate planning can be complex, but a top notch estate planning attorney can provide creative, cost-effective estate planning documents. Our estate plans range from simple wills for a husband and wife to high level estate planning structures with multiple trusts for multiple generations. The best estate planning attorneys should pay for themselves by saving your estate money in taxes, court costs and professional fees. Contact us today to protect your assets and provide more money to your heirs and beneficiaries.  Contact us today to talk to a successful estate planning attorney.

Probate Attorney


A good probate attorney should make the probate court process simple and stress free.  In many probate cases we act as the probate attorney and either represent the executor or in some probate cases, we act as the executor ourselves. We will take care of your probate estate and make sure the probate estate administration is efficient and affordable.  We can also handle will contest cases if you suspect that someone has exerted undue influence on a loved one and manipulated them into giving them their estate and make sure you get your fair share of your loved one’s estate.  Call us today to speak to a successful probate attorney in Cleveland, Akron and the surrounding areas.
