Estate Planning

Keller, Barrett & Higgins is a trusted estate planning firm in Cincinnati, Ohio that will guide and assist you with this necessary legal matter. An estate plan is the best way to organize your life so that you and your loved ones are taken care of in case of disability, sickness or death. It's one of the best gifts you can give your family. A foundation for an effective estate plan includes the following: 

  • Wills
  • Property Power of Attorney
  • Healthcare Documents (Healthcare Power of Attorney & Living Will)

An estate attorney in Cincinnati, Ohio will sit down with you to see exactly what you need before providing recommendations. Your goals and needs may necessitate an estate plan that goes beyond the foundation documents. After gathering personal, family and financial information from you during an initial consultation, we will discuss your options, including:

  • Revocable Living Trusts
  • Credit Shelter Trusts
  • Irrevocable Life Insurance Trusts
  • charitable donations
  • gifting

If you have a family member with a disability, especially if he or she qualifies or may qualify for Medicaid waivers or other need-based government aid, then it is very important to plan appropriately for their inheritance. We can discuss all the available options, including Special Needs Trusts and Ohio new stable accounts. Please call or email Ellen Keller to discuss your estate planning.
