It’s surreal to think about planning for your own death, but there are many reasons to consider your options for estate planning. Wills and other documents can help your loved ones understand your intentions for distributing assets to beneficiaries. There are also multiple tax advantages under certain circumstances. Plus, an estate plan streamlines the estate administration process, saving time and money. A well-executed estate plan can even deliver significant benefits during your lifetime.
At Fout Law, we provide a personalized approach to wills and estates that are custom-tailored to your needs and those of your loved ones. Many people assume they don’t need estate planning services because they’re not “rich” enough, but there are numerous advantages regardless of the size of your estate. Teresa Fout is a skilled attorney that can take complicated estate planning concepts and explain them in terms that ensure you fully understand your options.
Through a will, you can name an executor to collect and manage your assets upon your death and can designate the beneficiaries to receive them. Without a will, Ohio law steps in to distribute your property according to the rules on intestacy. The end result may be giving assets to people contrary to your intentions.

Teresa was the guardian of my case, she listened to what my younger sister and I had to say and had our safety as the main priority no matter what. She handled the case with compassion and professionalism. She has saved my sister and I from a dangerous situation with our biological mother and has changed our lives for the better.

Teresa is a very professional legal representative that was very patient with me and very comforting. She took the time to answer and clarify, if needed, any questions I had. She was very helpful and knew the laws and how to handle what I would call a difficult situation. She even assisted me after the divorce was final with some advice I needed and was there for me even with her busy caseload. I would certainly recommend her to anyone that would need her services.
Attorney Fout is amazing! She had to wear many hats during a very difficult case for my children and me over a 3-year process. She has a great depth in many areas of the law with the ability to understand how painful these times can be. She is very professional and has an extreme passion for high integrity. Because my children were involved her background as a Guardian ad Litem was so profound. I recommend her to others in need, as she can help in a plethora of legal avenues.
