David H. Lefton • Cincinnati, Ohio
Estate Planning Attorney
Helping You Provide for Those You Love
Welcome! If you found my website, I know you may be looking for a trusted and experienced attorney and about to make a big decision regarding the best way to provide for and protect your loved ones.
I am a partner in the Cincinnati law firm of Barron Peck Bennie & Schlemmer, and I created this website to provide a free resource on estate planning, probate and business matters for people in Cincinnati and surrounding areas. Feel free to read my Estate Planning articles, most recent Hyde Park Living column or follow me on my Blog.
Too many people avoid estate planning because they think it means preparing for death. I view estate planning as a means of assuring your future dreams and goals. It can help you focus on your loved ones as we explore ways to reduce your taxes, plan your children's education, begin an adoption, value a family business or manage a change in marital status. What is important to you is most important to me as I help you to plan for your future and to ensure your assets and loved ones are protected.
My goal with each client is to become a trusted and lifelong advisor. Unlike many other attorneys or law firms that draw up a will as a one-time transaction, I strive to provide comprehensive estate plans customized for you, your family and your business, depending on your unique needs and budget.
Understanding your options is the first step in accomplishing your goals. Call me today at 513-399-PLAN (7526) to schedule a complimentary appointment.
Taming Transfer Taxes
"That time of the year" can be frightening or dreaded. While income taxes are on the top of every taxpayer's mind this time of year, our front page article discusses the benefits of reviewing your estate plan for lifetime gifting and inheritance planning opportunities.
