Experienced And Personalized Representation

When you need help with any kind of legal matter, you want to be sure the lawyer you choose is not only qualified, but also has the compassion, commitment, and level of expertise necessary to help you. Our team takes the time to understand each client’s life, their family, their preferences, and their goals.  We educate our clients so that they feel confident in making informed decisions. Working with their families and professional advisors ensures that our clients’ plans are understood by all and carried out accordingly. Not all lawyers offer this kind of representation, so you want to be sure that you are choosing the right Ohio attorney for your needs.

Elder law and estate planning is a deeply personal process. The team at Butcher Elder Law understands this and takes a compassionate approach to every family before developing a legal strategy. To many clients, we become trusted friends and partners in some of life’s most important decisions.

Attorney Samuel V. Butcher, Esq., RPh, CELA, has been representing the needs of clients throughout the Strongsville area for more than 25 years. Butcher Elder Law maintains the resources of a large firm with the personal service and cost-sensitivity of a small firm. In many situations, Butcher Elder Law charges a flat fee for services, regardless of the time worked.

What Sets Him Apart From Others

While other firms may offer services such as estate planning, probate, or Medicaid planning, they are not a primary area of focus.  Sam and his team are fully dedicated solely to Elder Law.  This means day in and day out, they are preparing trusts, wills, powers of attorney, healthcare directives, applying for long-term care Medicaid, planning for VA benefits, helping with guardianships, facilitating probate estates, and administering trusts.

Not many Certified Elder Law Attorneys are also Registered Pharmacists.  Sam uses his knowledge and skills in these areas to serve his clients in unique ways.  One of the major advantages that Sam offers is his CELA distinction. The certification process for this from the National Elder Law Foundation is renowned for how difficult and rigorous it is. He was able to earn this distinction through his years of experience, higher level of commitment to his clients, his continued legal education in elder law, and stellar recognition from his peers.

This qualification process ensures that Butcher Elder Law offers legal representation from someone who offers sound guidance and effective resolutions of your matter.

Get The Representation You Need

Strategic estate planning from Butcher Elder Law is designed specifically to prevent long-term care from wiping our your estate. Butcher Elder Law is dedicated to protecting families and their assets during life, while avoiding the common mistakes that lead to impoverishment and even bankruptcy.

Without proper planning, an unrecognized or unanticipated gap in planning could place your assets in the hands of a court, a child’s estranged spouse, the government, or an unintended beneficiary. Effective estate planning is much more than willing money to family members after you die; it’s about maintaining control of your life and your assets while you’re alive.

Don’t trust your estate to an internet template or a general-practice attorney. Talk to Butcher Elder Law and learn why small mistakes can have big consequences.

Without the guidance of an attorney, you risk making mistakes in your estate planning that can cost you time or the results you need. Let someone who knows what you are trying to achieve guide you to the outcome you deserve.
