Planning A Will And Trust

While everyone needs a Will, there are ways to avoid Probate Court which everyone is afraid of and wants to avoid.  Probate Court simply is designed as an administrative proceeding to see that your property is distributed to your heirs according to law.  If you don’t have a Will your property will go to those designated by the State of Ohio.
This subject also involves Regular Durable Powers of Attorney where the person signing authorizes another person to sign that person’s name and to transact business and personal affairs for the person.  This is often used when an elderly or sick person is unable to conduct their own affairs.  Also, there are Healthcare Powers of Attorney which are essentially legal documents authorizing another person to permit physicians, if a person is brain dead with no hope of recovering to remove feeding tubes, and breathing apparatuses.  Everyone should have these documents.


Trusts are another way to avoid Probate Court but can be an expensive way when there are less expensive ways to do the same thing for an average estate.

A Compassionate Attorney Who Won’t Intimidate You

If you are considering filing for divorce in Portage County, or neighboring county in central Ohio, take the time to settle your nerves. Then call me, attorney Richard C. Lombardi, in Ravenna. I offer a free consultation to discuss your situation — or even just to listen for a while.

It may help to remember that the law doesn’t care who was right or wrong. I will work hard to make sure your rights and interests are protected at every turn. Through it all, I will be available to talk or listen. I answer my phone, and I return calls as soon as possible. You will be empowered with the knowledge you need to make informed decisions, and you know that you have an attorney on your side who honestly cares about an efficient, cost-effective outcome.


I have experience in a broad range of Ohio family law matters, including:

-Divorce, marriage dissolution, uncontested settlements and contested litigation

-Spousal support, alimony

-Division of marital property, complex high-asset property division

-Child custody, parental rights, father’s rights

-Child support issues, enforcement

-Post-judgment modifications of alimony, child support

-Paternity litigation

-Custodial parent relocation

-Prenuptial agreements

Mediation Or Litigation?

The courts expect parties in family law matters to do everything they can to resolve issues outside of trial. I believe that mediation and negotiation can yield great benefits for all involved while saving money, time and stress. I’m prepared to help you reach a peaceful and amicable settlement, if possible. However, if your spouse or co-parent is unwilling to negotiate in good faith, I will not hesitate to take the case to trial.
