Probate and Estate Services - Let Martin Folino Work For You!

Probate and Estate Planning Services - Dayton Ohio

Probate is a complex and unique area of law that concerns the process of administering the estate of a deceased person, resolving all claims against that estate, and distributing the deceased person's property according to a will.

It also addresses the estates of incapacitated people who, for various reasons, are no longer able to handle their own affairs.

Since 1961, Martin Folino attorneys have represented hundreds of local clients in Dayton, Ohio, and surrounding communities to resolve probate-related matters.

Our experienced probate lawyers not only assist clients in creating solid estate plans, we provide advice and legal guidance to clients who are estate holders or potential beneficiaries of estates. We also advise and represent individuals who have been appointed to positions of authority regarding the management of an estate or of the care of an individual.
