About me

Bill Graves has practiced law for twenty-five years.  He grew up in a small town in northern Ohio.  His mother was a school teacher and his father was a lawyer.  The two of them taught him respect others, to think things through on a rational level, and that a job worth doing is a job worth doing well. 

He received his Bachelor’s degree at Miami University of Ohio and went on to achieve his Law degree at Arizona State University.  He has since dedicated hundreds of hours to continuing education to keep current on the most recent developments in the law. 

He is a member of Wealth Counsel, which is one of the foremost Estate Planning organizations in the United States.  This organization gives it members the education, training, and tools to accomplish outstanding result of its member’s clients. 

He specializes in counseling clients regarding how they can utilize every tool available under the law to provide protections for them and their loved ones.  He believes that every one of his clients deserves the best possible estate plan for them and is committed to making sure that their plan actually accomplishes why they intended by providing a unique array of services that is very rare in the field of estate planning.
