Westlake, Ohio Lawyer Dan Baron Explains why you should NEVER rely on a simple will

With only a basic will, 95% of the time these are the results:

  • 6-14 months in court to sort assets (even with named beneficiaries)
  • Possible increase of taxes taken from your assets
  • Your personal financial information made public for everyone to see

Baron Law will help you with the following:


Keep Beneficiaries Out of Court

Even if you've named beneficiaries in your will, they can only receive their inheritance AFTER your basic will has passed through probate court. Probate court takes a minimum of 6 months (on average 14 months) to administer and can cost up to 10% of your total assets (according to AARP).


Keep Assets Private and Fully Intact


Through probate court, your assets become public knowledge and give creditors the first opportunity to collect BEFORE your loved ones. Also, scammers can use your public information to trick your family. Inheritances will diminish before they are awarded as you intended.


Protect Your Assets from Scammers

Because a basic will sends your loved ones to probate court, all of your assets will be made public. Then, creditors, medicaid estate recovery, and scam artists that troll dockets can call your loved ones and scam your money from them.

Major Misconceptions about Simple Wills:

"Wills are the easiest and best way to get your assets to your loved ones."

It's an unfortunate common thought that a basic will is all you need to make sure your estate is distributed how you wish. Most attorneys do not have the certification, experience, and knowledge to fully advise for estate planning based on the intricacies of the law. Below are the actual facts you need to know:
