Practice areas

I am an estate planning attorney helping individuals and families navigate the complexities of Medicaid planning, preparation of wills and trusts, and the administration of a loved one’s estate. 

I help my aging clients by working with them to navigate the complexities of a comprehensive care-plan designed to meet my clients’ goals of receiving necessary care while generally preserving assets for a spouse, children, family, or charities. When possible, I like to plan with clients before needs arise because it provides the best opportunity to meet the clients’ goals. When that isn’t possible, I can help make the best of the adversity that aging sometimes presents unexpectedly.

I work with clients regardless of age in preparing key documents such as wills, powers of attorney, advance directives, and, when appropriate for the client’s goals, trusts. Being a parent of two young daughters, I am sensitive to the estate planning needs of my clients with minor children and I counsel them on documents to name guardians and provide structure for transferring their property in the event of an untimely death. 

I will listen to your goals and concerns to work with you in developing your personalized plans. And when a family member passes away, I am here to help your family handle the legal aspects of an estate administration so you can have peace of mind.

| Hired Attorney
Impeccable Legal Service.
Mr. Sweet handled the $1,000,000+ estate of my deceased cousin in which I was out-of-state executor on the recommendation of her local bank in Akron, Ohio. Alan was impeccably thorough and detailed with his work and very economical as well. I cannot say enough good about the work of him and his team. Being out of state and an 2 hour drive from the area, I heavily relied on Mr. Sweet to be my quarterback and he came through every time. Excellent communication and a really nice, kind person as well. Very highly recommended.
