Limited Clients. Proven Results.

Everyone should have an estate plan. It’s the complexity of the estate plan that should vary to each individual situation. Estate Plan Creation Attorney Robert Stiefvater formed Stiefvater Law, LLC in order to provide cost effective estate plans for select clients. Our estate plans typically cost only a fraction of the expenses that are saved by streamlining or avoiding the probate process. A small investment now can save big later on. By limiting the number of clients we represent, we are able to provide individual service that is practically unheard of in this day and age. Our Estate Plan Creation Attorneys prepare only those documents that are necessary for our clients. We never sell services that aren’t recommended. We take our estate planning seriously – let’s talk.

The estate plans created by our Estate Plan Creation Attorneys ensure that your wishes are seen through in regards to your health and assets. We create an estate plan that is personal to you. Our services are superior to those fill in the blank forms that are offered online. Online forms do not take into consideration the specifics of your situation. One wrong phrase can invalidate a document. Some banking institutions only accept documents with certain language. Talk to Estate Planning Lawyer Robert Stiefvater and see how reasonable an individualized estate plan can be.

The basic estate plan package offered by our Estate Plan Creation Law Firm contains the documents that everyone should have. These documents are important regardless of the size of your estate. Many of our clients may require additional documents to complete their estate plan (i.e. a trust), but at the core of a good estate plan are the documents found in our estate plan package.

Our basic estate plan package has the following documents:

1. Durable Power of Attorney;

2. Health Care Power of Attorney;

3. Last Will and Testament; and

4. Living Will

Living Will:

Legal Document that provides instructions regarding end-of-life care if you are unable to make those decisions on your own. Ensures that your own choices and medical wishes are honored and how you should be cared for in end-of-life situations when you become incapable of communicating your wishes. Sets forth your wishes on topics such as resuscitation, desired quality of life and end of life treatments, including organ donation and treatment you do not want to receive. Without a living will, the laws of the State of Oho will determine who will make your health care decisions.

Do Not Resuscitate (DNR):

One of the most important parts of your Living Will includes indicating your wishes regarding resuscitation. Your Living Will expresses your wishes regarding resuscitation. This issue still needs to be addressed with your doctor and a state specific form needs to be completed and signed by the physician to start taking effect. This is especially important in a pre-hospital situation to prevent paramedics or your health care facility from trying to resuscitate you if your wish is not to be resuscitated.

Estate Planning Attorney Robert Stiefvater ensures that each client understands the process of creating an effective estate plan. Certain terminology is used in the estate planning process and we take the time to explain the documents, which includes explaining the terminology. Some of the common terms include:

Creditor’s Claim:

If the Decedent owed a debt to anyone, that person is considered a creditor of the Decedent’s estate and must present their claim against the Decedent’s estate within 6 months from the Decedent’s date of death.

Next of Kin:

Put simply, next of kin is the closest living family of the Decedent.


The Executor, Administrator or Commissioner that is appointed by the Probate Court to manage the Decedent’s Probate Estate is considered a fiduciary.


If there is no Will that waives the requirement of posting bond, the state requires fiduciaries to submit a bond to the Court guaranteeing they serve their duties as fiduciary without fail.

At Stiefvater Law, LLC, we take care of our limited clientele and make certain they understand every step of the estate planning process.
