For many individuals in Ohio, their financial wellbeing is paramount and the basis for many daily and year decisions. As such, protecting their finances, property and other assets is often the purpose and goal for creating an estate plan.
Whether you are young or old, rich or poor, healthy or ill, creating an estate plan helps you memorialize your wishes when it comes to the distribution of your assets. Furthermore, an estate plan puts plans in place when it comes to your medical care and creates legal authorization for an individual to make healthcare or financial decisions on your behalf if you cannot.

An estate plan is unique and tailor-made to the individual and their wishes. At Rapier & Bowling Co., LPA, our skilled estate planning attorneys understand this, which is why we ensure the experience is personalized to each client.
