Transitions are never easy, especially when they involve untangling someone's assets, or possibly your own. Without the proper legal guidance, confusion and despair can take over as the process grows in complexity.

At Gottschlich & Portune, LLP, we work on all sides and in all aspects of cases, representing people seeking to manage their estates, family members as they deal with financial issues, and the estate itself as it passes through the probate process. Our firm has served the Miami Valley for decades, and we hope to serve you as well.

What We Offer

We have an array of services available for financial planning in all stages of life. 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. Our services include:

  • Basic estate planning
    We draft wills, trusts, powers of attorney and HIPAA waivers.
  • Guardianships
    We can draw up the appropriate documents to delegate financial responsibility in case someone is unable to make those decisions on their own.
  • Estate and probate administration
    We can guide you through the process of winding down the affairs of an estate.
  • Nursing home eligibility
    We can give financial guidance to enable people to qualify for a Medicaid facility.
  • Financial abuse prevention
    We can offer strategies for preventing the financial abuse of a beloved senior, or give advice on what to do if you believe abuse is already occurring.
  • Inheritance disputes
    This includes contested wills and other allegations of fraud that occur during the probate process.

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.
