We all need to plan for the unexpected events in our lives. An estate plan is a backup plan for the protection of your family and your assets in the event of your disability or death.

Estate planning protects you and your loved ones. For example, you can ensure that your minor or special needs children are provided for as you personally determine.  Also, it ensures that your assets are distributed to your spouse and bloodline beneficiaries.

For more than 35 years, Mark Hoffman has been assisting individuals and families across Northeast Ohio by creating sound estate plans.

We work closely with clients to draft crucial documents such as Wills, Trusts and Powers of Attorney that outline your predetermined wishes. These estate planning tools can prevent, for example, an immature child from receiving a large sum or can protect the assets you leave behind to support your heirs from creditors. In addition, estate plans can prevent your loved ones from going through a potentially costly and lengthy Probate administration or litigation. If you do not have a plan, you are subject to the complicated Probate laws. The Probate Court may control and distribute your assets with unintended consequences. It is always significantly more expensive than if you have an estate plan.
