Estate Planning for Central Ohio

No matter how small your estate may be, estate planning allows you, while you are still living, to ensure that your property will go to the people you want, in the way you want, and when you want.  It permits you to save as much as possible in taxes, court costs and attorney fees, in addition to giving you comfort that your loved ones can mourn your loss without being burdened with unnecessary paperwork and financial confusion.


All estate plans should include at least a will, a financial durable power of attorney and healthcare directives.  In addition, trusts can be utilized to minimize taxes and administration costs, as well as manage estates both during life and after death.  At MacLaren Law LLC, we can assist you in determining which documents are right for you.

Estate Planning for your Pets

A pet trust is an agreement that specifies how an owner wants a pet to be cared for, including details on who will be responsible for the animal and how the care will be paid for.  The most important aspect of a pet trust is to ensure the pet and funds can be turned over quickly to the caregiver. A pet trust will ensure that your pets do not end up in a shelter and that they will receive the same standard of care after you are gone.



Estate Administration and Probate Court
