Probate

Probate and Estate Planning Lawyers

Serving Akron, Canton and Summit County, Ohio.

Probate Court in Ohio is the Court responsible for wills, estates, trusts, guardianship, adoptions, conservatorships, and any lawsuits regarding those things.  Usually when people refer to Probate though, they are referring to opening an estate for a deceased person and using their will to distribute the property of the deceased person to their beneficiaries.

At Hoover Kacyon LLC, our experienced probate attorneys handle every type of case at the probate court.  When an attorney opens an estate in probate court, that is called Estate administration.  Our lawyers will help you get a will admitted to probate court, get appointed executor or administrator, and administer the estate.  We have the knowledge and experience on how to file for the estate, complete the inventory, sell or transfer the estate assets, and complete accountings.  Our attorneys will guide you through every step of the probate process.

If a person passes without a will, they are said to have passed intestate.  Our estate lawyers can help with that as well.  Ohio law governs the process for administering an intestate estate.  Let our probate attorneys guide you through the estate from start to finish.

When a loved one passes away, it’s important to know that their affairs will be handled promptly and professionally. Once you have made funeral arrangements, it’s time to call an attorney you can trust to handle the estate. Whether the person had a will or not, our attorneys and staff can help make sure that the deceased’s property is distributed from the estate. After your loved one has passed, see if you can locate a will or trust in their documents. Then call us at 330-922-4491 or contact us online to schedule an appointment.

The probate process does take time, but our estate team will help guide you through the process. If you are out of town or even out of state, we can act as the executor or administrator of the estate as well.
