Does everyone need estate planning?  Yes.  John and Mari Alice’s experience, direct client contact, and attention to detail allow them to work closely with you to develop a personalized estate plan.  Once you have consulted with our Attorneys and developed your personalized estate plan, it is recommended that you update your plan every 5 to 10 years, depending on your life changing events.  John and Mari Alice also focus their time on probate administration and adult and minor guardianships in probate courts throughout Ohio.
