Probate & Estate Law

Gottschlich & Portune, LLP, maintains an active probate and estate law practice, headed up by Gary Gottschlich, serving individuals and families dealing with the challenges of transition. We work on all sides and in all aspects of cases, representing the individual seeking to manage his or her estate, family members as they deal with financial issues, and the estate itself as it passes through the probate process.

Issues presenting themselves include:

  • Basic estate planning: wills, trusts and essential documents such as powers of attorney and HIPAA waivers
  • Guardianships
  • Estate and probate administration
  • Qualifying for Medicaid nursing home eligibility
  • Financial abuse of the elderly
  • Will contests and inheritance disputes: charges of undue influence, fraud, incapacitation, the wrong will, theft of estate items, etc.

Our great strength in probate and estate law is our experience in litigation. Your best protection against being ignored or treated unfairly in the probate process is an attorney who knows Ohio law and will assert your interests.

Our lawyers are committed to providing effective, responsive counsel and representation. We explain the process at every stage, so you are never in the dark about your case. Our goal is to deliver top-quality advocacy for fees that are manageable.

Despite the antiquity of the building we helped restore to function, Gottschlich & Portune, LLP, uses the latest and most powerful technology to support you in estate planning and the probate process.

To discuss your problems in these areas, schedule a free initial consultation with our lawyers at our historic Dayton offices. We will hear your story and help you plot a strategy leading to the outcome you desire.
