Lorain Guardianship Lawyers
If you need help with the drafting of a last will and testament, as part of your estate planning, or a guardianship to protect a minor or elder loved one, we can help.
In Elyria and Northeast Ohio, the attorneys who offer dedicated, effective, experienced estate planning representation — and have since 1970 — are the Spike & Meckler Law Firm, LLP.
A will or living will can spare your survivors the inconvenience of costly, lengthy probate proceedings. We can draft a will or advance health care directive that explicitly spells out your wishes for distribution of assets and property to beneficiaries, and guidance for end-of-life decisions if you are incapacitated.
We can assist with formation of guardianships as well. Spike & Meckler documents and files the required paperwork, explains what needs to be done and represents you for dealings with administrative agencies, to provide for an accurate accounting of assets.
Spike & Meckler provides solid guidance with conservatorships in which a ward is mentally competent but, because of physical infirmities, is unable to handle his or her affairs. If a person meets the definition of legal incompetence and there is no next of kin, or next of kin are unable to serve, the court will often appoint an attorney as guardian to arrange for care.
We can serve as representatives for the guardian and also serve as guardians. Contact us to arrange your initial consultation at our Elyria law offices.
