Longstanding General Counsel Serving Greene County Clients in a Variety of Practice Areas
Miller, Finney & McKeown LLC is a general practice firm in Greene County, Ohio that offers professional and affordable legal services to clients dealing with matters pertaining to business law, estate planning and probate, and real estate law.
Estate Planning & Administration
Passing without having a proper will or trust in place leaves your property subject to the laws governing intestate succession in the State of Ohio, meaning that your hard-earned assets may not be distributed among your beneficiaries according to your wishes. That said, estate planning isn’t just about ensuring the smooth transfer of your wealth to your loved ones, it also ensures your rights and dignity are protected in the event that you become incapacitated and incapable of making decisions about your health care or finances.
You may be able to spare your loved ones a great deal of stress and expense down the line by taking the time to contact an experienced estate planning attorney today and get started on creating a comprehensive plan that can safeguard your assets regardless of what the future holds. Call Miller, Finney & McKeown LLC to learn more about our estate planning services and how we can help you secure peace of mind for you and your family for years to come.
Additionally, if you have been named the personal representative of a person’s estate and you’re wondering how you can discharge your duties according to the letter of the law, we are here to guide you. As a personal representative, you’re responsible for accounting for the assets of the deceased individual, settling any debts to creditors, and distributing the remainder of the estate among their designated beneficiaries. Our experienced attorneys can significantly reduce the time and expense associated with going to probate court and, in some cases, even help you avoid it altogether.
We offer our clients and their families a number of different estate planning services, including, but not limited to wills and trusts, powers of attorney, advance healthcare directives, probate administration, affidavits of heirship, conservatorships, guardianships, and tax issues.
