From guardianships to estate plans, to trust and estate administration, our probate department is a one-stop shop for all these issues in Ohio. Not only can we help you plan how your estate will be administered, but our litigation background can serve you when things go wrong or problems arise.

As a member of Reminger’s Probate Litigation Department, Paul has trial experience litigating million-dollar estate, trust, and guardianship issues such as undue influence, power of attorney abuse, and financial exploitation. An award-winning journalist who worked at daily newspapers around the country before becoming a lawyer, Paul employs the writing and investigation skills he developed as a reporter to help people in a legal setting. Whether you are ready to plan your estate, need questions answered after a family member dies, or believe litigation is necessary to challenge wills, beneficiary designations, or other bad acts, Paul has the experience to guide you through these issues.

In addition to heading the firm’s New Lawyer Training Program for associates, Paul is interested in the regulation of the Great Lakes as a natural resource and regularly lectures on First Amendment issues to first-year students at the Ohio University Scripps School of Journalism. Paul lives in Chagrin Falls with his wife and son while remaining active as a volunteer with non-profit organizations that reduce hunger in the Cleveland area.
