Estate Planning Attorney In Greater Cleveland

Plan For Your Future Today

Whether you are just starting a family or heading into retirement, estate planning is essential. Working with experienced legal professionals can help you to create a plan that is tailored to your specific needs and goals. We have helped thousands of people from the greater Cleveland area.

Estate planning is an essential component of wealth and asset management that most people overlook until it is too late. Everyone who owns anything from property to retirement accounts should consider what will happen to their assets after they pass away or become incapacitated.

The law provides safeguards that can protect the financial interests of individuals, but these benefits are not necessarily automatic. The Law Office of Paul J. Stano is dedicated to ensuring that all of your affairs are in order so that your interests are carried out according to your wishes.


“He saved me so much aggravation and heartache.”

“My father originally went to Paul Stano to have a will prepared. However after his health began to change, we needed to get things in place to help him enter assisted living and have these expenses paid for. Mr. Stano took care of everything for us, including getting him VA benefits. I would’ve had no idea how to go about doing this. He saved me so much aggravation and heartache. My father took care of me for many years growing up, and I wanted to make sure I took care of him when the time came. Mr. Stano helped me do this. I talk to others who think it’s very simple to get VA benefits. But they have no idea how difficult this can be. I tell folks to let Paul Stano do it for them. He gets things done so smoothly.“

Estate Planning Can Protect Your Future

Who will manage your affairs and ensure that your wishes are being carried out?  How will assets be divided up among beneficiaries? How will enough cash become available to cover probate costs? How will debts and other financial obligations be met? These are just a few of the many questions that you need to be asking yourself to ensure that your life’s work is preserved for the next generation.

Stano Law Firm is committed to helping you to explore options and develop a strategy that will keep your estate from being divided up by creditors or the state. This can include taking steps to satisfy debts and tax obligations to ensuring that the standard of living of your loved ones will not be adversely impacted.

How We Can Help

We can help you to create a will, establish trusts and powers of attorney along with the designation of beneficiaries. Remember that even the smallest of estates require proper management to ensure that life insurance benefits are properly distributed, retirement accounts and investments are protected and that property ownership is clearly defined.
