Ohio Probate and Trust Administration

The law office of McCoy & McCoy provides essential probate and estate administration services including wills, trusts, powers of attorney, living wills, health care directives, asset protection planning, and more. As an executor or fiduciary of an estate or trust, it is important that you know your duties and follow the law in distributing the assets and paying the debts. Executors and fiduciaries can be held personally liable for the mistakes they may make. This is one of the reasons it is important to have experienced, competent legal representation to assist with the administrative process. Generally, attorney fees and executor (fiduciary) fees are paid from the estate or trust upon court approval.
