The Probate and Trust Litigation Group prides itself on our ability to analyze, evaluate, and solve complex substantive problems on behalf of fiduciaries, beneficiaries, and third party claimants in contested matters.

We prosecute and defend cases before mediators, arbitrators, magistrates, judges, and juries throughout Ohio.

Our lawyers are frequent lecturers and participants at professional seminars given by banks, bar associations, and third party providers both in Ohio and elsewhere in the Midwest. We can and do consider contingency and fixed fee compensation arrangements as well as traditional hourly rate fee structures.

"I want to thank you for your help in this lawsuit. You guys are the best trust attorneys I’ve ever met, and I’ve met a lot of attorneys over my 40 years. Thanks so much for helping me in this stressful time."
-Bill, Executive VP and Trust Officer

"Reminger did an outstanding job of guiding me through the resolution of a very difficult trust. From issues regarding the trust’s interpretation, to administering assets in multiple states, to appeasing confrontational beneficiaries, Paul Shugar and Adam Fried were on top of everything. They kept me informed and knowledgeable as to my various decisions as we resolved the issues through litigation and kept the grantors’ intent intact."

“I wanted to express my gratitude for services rendered by Adam Fried and Franklin Malemud during recent settlement of expenses incurred from the late husband’s trust. I appreciate the expedient manner of settlement and the professional behavior of these attorneys. Mr. Fried, through 'quick thinking' on the telephone was even able to recoup funeral expenses from my husband’s estate. I am encouraged and grateful that these two attorneys represented and protected my interests.”

“The lawyering performed and results obtained by Reminger’s Probate Litigation lawyers in having an independent guardian appointed and earning an award of attorney fees was outstanding.”

"I could not have persisted for these three long years without your advice, professionalism, patience, and compassion!  In spite of all the grief, working with all of you at Reminger has been a very positive experience.  You have taught me so much about legal issues, various personalities, and life in general.  Please know how grateful I am."
