Chardon Estate Planning Law Firm

Chardon, OH is the county seat of Geauga County, Ohio, with a population of just over 5,000. The city is just 35 minutes east of downtown Cleveland. Chardon is known as the epicenter of Ohio’s maple syrup industry as well as the center of Ohio’s snowbelt. The residents are proud of the notoriety the community receives for the average of over 105 inches of snow annually, and their ability to continue day-to-day activities in adverse weather conditions.

Chardon is seen as a small, typical, mid-west town promoting the best such a community can provide. It offers a safe environment, excellent schools, and superior city services, and in 2004 Chardon was rated Cleveland’s second-best suburb by Cleveland Magazine.

The Bankruptcy Code was established by the United States Congress to offer people the ability to file for financial relief. The addition and removal of restrictions for filing for bankruptcy have changed through the years. Most recently, a change went into effect in October of 2005. These changes included the addition of education requirements for those who want to file for bankruptcy relief and income-based limits on filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. There are, of course, many considerations when deciding which chapter of bankruptcy relief to pursue, and an experienced lawyer can help you make that decision.

Probate & Estate Planning

Managing the estate of a family member who has passed away can be a difficult and extremely emotional situation. That’s why it is so vital to get outside help from a legal expert that you can rely on to be fair and honest while guiding you through the probate process.

The ideal situation, of course, is creating an estate plan that covers precisely how you want your assets handled once you do pass away. It’s not something any of us want to think about, but it saves the stress and uncertainty that can come about when plans haven’t been put in place.

Real Estate

Few – if any – of our assets are as important as real estate. That said, the laws surrounding real estate property can be highly complex, and it’s important that you understand the options you have under the law.

Whether you’re dealing with a landlord-tenant dispute, a purchase agreement, or other real estate matter, we have the experience and expertise you need on your side to keep your best interests in focus.

Business Startups

Statistics tell us that the majority of startups will fail. But there are some common reasons for that, one of which being that too many new business owners try to do everything themselves without the help and support they need.

That’s why we love working with new business owners to help them manage the legal details so they can focus on building a successful business.
