Elder Law

Zanesville, OH elder law attorney helps seniors plan

Effective safeguards provide security for the elderly and their children

Most Ohioans understand the necessity of planning for the future We work hard and put money away for inevitable expenses: our home mortgage, children’s education, and retirement. We purchase insurance that covers our home, auto, health and life. But one area where our planning often falls short is elder care. We like to hope we’ll have a healthy and active retirement, but there is always the possibility that with old age will come illness. Stubbins, Watson, Bryan & Witucky Co., L.P.A. helps our neighbors in and around Zanesville solidify their future planning with legal safeguards in case of infirmity, so elders who become vulnerable are properly cared for and can still leave a legacy to their loved ones.

Sharply focused elder law attorney provides personalized service

What distinguishes Stubbins, Watson, Bryan & Witucky Co., L.P.A. from other broad-based law firms is that we don’t have attorneys who dabble in many areas. We have attorneys who focus narrowly on discrete areas of the law working in collaboration with each other. This allows depth of experience in the areas we cover.
