My estate planning practice is focused on helping you care for those you love and manage what you own while you’re living and after you’re gone. I became attracted to estate planning starting during law school when my professor discussed that one of the most important reasons to have a Will was to designate guardians for minor children. I thought of my three minor children and realized the great need of all parents to choose guardians who would raise their children with their love, values, faith and aspirations. As a result, my practice reflects a relational approach to estate planning that preserves the memory of your affections for your loved one as well as preserving your effects and assets. Tangibly, this is seen in Kid’s Protection Planning™ for clients with minor children, which involves Family Wealth Interviews to preserve a lasting memory of your wisdom, faith, traditions, and affections to pass on as a legacy to those you love.
I graduated from The University of Dayton School of Law. My first legal job was as an Assistant Prosecuting Attorney, where I spent five years focusing on youth either in prosecuting juvenile crimes, obtaining child support for minors, or protecting children from abusive and neglectful parents. While working full time as an Assistant Prosecuting Attorney, I founded Culpepper Law LLC to meet the needs of growing families in our community.
When I’m not practicing law, I spend my time with my most valuable assets—my wife Wendi, and my three children-- Abigail, Grace, and Joshua. I also volunteer as a domestic helper performing tasks from helping teenagers learn to drive to washing dishes and cleaning house to ensuring small boys make their beds and pick up their dirty clothes.
