Trust And Estate Administration

Your family’s comfort and security are paramount. If you have anything more than a few houseplants to pass on, you need documents! To achieve vital protection for you, your family, and your assets, you will want a good listener with focused experience in estate planning who can provide an essential helping hand.

The trust and estate lawyers at Hickman Lowder provide counsel on a wide variety of individual, family and related business issues to put and keep you and your family on solid ground. We assist fiduciaries (someone who holds assets in trust for someone else) in Ohio with preparation of probate documents, preparation of estate tax returns, and resolution of controversies with beneficiaries and the tax authorities.

Some of our estate administration services include:

  • Decedent’s (person who has died) final income tax returns
  • Estate tax return preparation
  • Estate accounting and bookkeeping
  • Fiduciary income tax returns
  • Asset distributions and transfers

While our trust and estate attorneys supervise all dealings with the probate court and financial institutions, Hickman Lowder‘s experienced professional paralegals are the ones who save the estate and/or trust additional fees by effectively managing accounting, bookkeeping and tax preparation for our clients. We are proud to have helped thousands of people like you through trying times and difficult circumstances, and to reach financial goals feeling understood, informed and empowered.
