Columbus Law Firm
Since 1989, we have focused on several select areas of the law. And while the quantity of probate, estate planning and adoption cases we handle annually makes us a leader in Ohio in these areas, concentrating on a select number allows us to take the time and effort to respond to each of our client's individual needs. For experienced and personalized representation, contact our Columbus, Ohio, law firm today.
As a former Probate Court Magistrate, Thomas Taneff understands the intricacies of probate proceedings. At the Law Office of Thomas Taneff, we put nearly two decades of probate experience to use in guiding you through the complicated estate administration process to avoid future disputes. If the estate must proceed through probate (if proper estate planning has not been established), or if the will is being contested, we can represent your interests in probate proceedings or probate litigation. We will use our experience to fight for you and ensure your case is handled as quickly and with as little turmoil as possible.
At the Law Office of Thomas Taneff, we understand the need and importance of early estate planning. We have seen people undergo unforeseen tragedies and then the situations are compounded when their estates are left in shambles. A sad truth is that money can tear a family apart. Estate planning that includes wills, trusts, estate and gift tax planning, durable powers of attorney and more can go a long way in preventing the havoc that failure to have a proper estate plan in place can cause. A proper estate plan can also minimize or completely avoid the taxes your beneficiaries face upon your passing. In addition, it can avoid the need to establish guardianships
or conservatorships through complex probate court proceedings.
Adoption and Surrogacy
The Law Office of Thomas Taneff has been helping to form loving, caring families through adoption for nearly two decades. Thomas Taneff is one of our area's leaders in the number of children he places in Central Ohio homes each year. As a result of his compassion and caring in bringing children and loving parents together, he was awarded the 2005 Congressional "Angels in Adoption" award. At the Law Office of Thomas Taneff, birth mothers
are treated with the respect and compassion they deserve while prospective adoptive parents are given the personalized, comprehensive and caring attention they need as well. Whether you are building your family through surrogacy
or are helping provide a caring home for a child through adoption, we can help.
