About Dennis Aaron Rathburn Esq

My practice has transitioned over the last few years. The largest area of practice is Estate Planning (helping families prepare for a death and minimize legal work needed following a death in their family) and helping families with legal work necessary after a death in their family. It's referred to as "Probate" work. However, with proper planning, it should be referred to as Probate/non-Probate legal work. I have helped families in hundreds of cases from large, complex matters to small non-complex matters. The people that you plan for will likely be your family. We can help you make a plan to greatly help your family minimize necessary legal work or leave it to the Ohio statute of descent and distribution. We still represent clients in Domestic Relations matters (divorce, dissolution, legal separation, custody, shared parenting, contempt, spousal support), Real Estate matters (buy/sell real estate, lease - residential/commercial, land installment contracts both preparation and enforcement by forfeiture, mortgages, foreclosure), Probate, Probate avoidance, Estate Planning (Last Will & Testament, Power of Attorney, Living Wills, Trusts, Revocable Living Trusts, Special Needs Trusts, Survivorship, Transfer on Death), Probate Court litigation, Will Contest, Elder Law, Medicaid planning, Guardianships, Business matters (business formation, LLC, Partnership, incorporation, operating agreements, collection, collection defense), Notary Public, Insurance, some criminal defense, traffic OVI / DUI defense, Social Security appeal, SSI appeal.
