About Law Office Of Jonathan J. Schlegel, Esq.
The Law Office Of Jonathan J. Schlegel, Esq. is dedicated to providing the highest quality estate planning services for people of all life stages and those families with special needs issues.
Our practice area is limited to estate planning and its associated services. This includes constructing tailored wills and trusts for our clients, drafting highly specialized documents for those in the special needs community, and assisting in acquiring guardianships for the elderly and disabled when necessary.
It is our aim to provide not only top-quality documents to our clients but to counsel, educate and provide lifetime service. There is no point in having a robust plan if the attorney hasn't properly informed the client how to take advantage of it.
Our office is a forward-thinking law practice. We know our clients are busy people, and we will work with you to find appointments that fit your schedule.
We understand that many people are apprehensive about engaging an attorney for fear of a large and uncertain bill at the conclusion of services. Rest assured, we provide every single one of our services at a reasonable flat fee, and you will never be surprised with an additional bill.
Call today. We're located conveniently on Riverside Drive in Upper Arlington. I'm looking forward to serving you.
Very professional. Helped our family through a tough process. Highly recommended
Jonathan was extremely knowledgeable about the tenant-landlord relevant to my situation. I secured his services for an eviction in Hamilton County. He was extremely dedicated and responsive to all of my needs and we successfully won the eviction hearing on the first try. I would definitely use his services again and I highly recommend him if you find yourself in a situation where you need an eviction attorney.
My wife and I needed to establish a trust for our special needs son to allow him to retain his government assistance even if he were to receive inheritance from us or other gifts exceeding the Social Security maximums. Mr. Schlegel did an excellent job of explaining the options to us and walking us through the process of implementing the proper documentation for our complete estate planning. He was very helpful and patient in answering our questions and explaining everything. I would highly recommend him for estate planning, especially if that planning includes the need to establish a trust for a developmentally-disabled loved one.
My husband and I had already had a trust in place for our special needs son, we had previously done estate planning years ago with another attorney. We decided to contact Jonathan Schlegel just to update things. To our surprise the previous attorney not being experienced in dealing with Special Needs advised us improperly. Our son would of kept his medicaid benefits, but anything left in the Trust at the time of his death would go to the State, not on to our surviving family. Thank goodness we decided to see Jonathan Schlegel. He is very good at his profession, guided us through every step of the process. He was accessible through email and telephone calls no matter what day or time. We would highly recommend him for any Estate Planning. He has a passion for the special needs population!!! And even volunteers with a local organization of Special Olympics!! Don't hesitate to call him, you won't be sorry!!!!
