About Estates And Elder Law
Creating an estate plan or protecting an estate is one of the most important things you can do to protect family finances, reduce the potential for family conflict and ensure that your loved ones benefit from your lifetime of hard work and responsibility. Estate planning also allows you to leave a legacy of charitable giving if you so choose.
Many people are hesitant to create an estate plan or simply procrastinate because they assume they have plenty of time. Unfortunately, none of us knows what life has in store, so it is important to be prepared.
I’m attorney George E. Pattison, and I have decades of experience helping clients navigate Ohio estate planning laws. My services are convenient, comprehensive and legally sound. Keep reading to learn more about what my firm, George E. Pattison Attorney at Law, has to offer.
Full-Service Estate Planning
I am here for you for any estate planning need, including legal advice and documentation related to:
- Wills and trusts and other testamentary documents

- Financial powers of attorney

Guidance In Estate Administration And Probate
In addition to estate planning services, I also assist clients with probate matters and estate administration. Probating a will can be very complex and time-consuming. Therefore, most non-attorneys are unable or unwilling to take on such a task. Executors and administrators often seek help from a lawyer, which speeds up the process and reduces the risk of errors.
Regardless of whether the will needs to be probated, I am also able to assist executors and administrators as they carry out their assigned duties.
