Practice Areas

Estate Planning

Benjamin Franklin said that nothing can be certain but death and taxes. Attorney Elgin deals with both. Everyone has an estate plan. If you have not taken the time to make yours, the state has a default plan for you that likely does not do exactly what you want it to do. The state’s default plan is structured for ease of administration, not for maximizing benefits to your heirs or minimizing tax burdens at death.

Estate Administration

The loss of a loved one is stressful enough. Combine that with the process of winding up their affairs and distributing their assets and the process is a nightmare. Attorney Elgin assists families in navigating the probate process and closing out your loved one’s estate. The probate court has strict deadlines and forms for nearly everything — an experienced probate attorney can help you navigate the process and protect your rights.

Tax Law

Tax problems will not go away by themselves. The IRS (Internal Revenue Service) has powerful recovery methods and can garnish wages, freeze assets, and assess compounding interest and penalties. Revenue officers can place liens on your property and compel you to address your tax problems. The job of revenue officers is to maximize recovery for the government – not protect your interests. You should not face the IRS or Ohio Department of Taxation alone. Attorney Elgin can assist you in maximizing your benefit while resolving your tax issues.



When a loved one's physical or mental functioning starts to deteriorate, tough decisions have to be made, quickly. Guardianship is legal arrangement that provides for the care and supervision of an individual deemed incompetent. An experienced probate attorney can help you navigate the complex process and help you do what you do best -- support your loved one.


Adoptions are one of the happiest times in a families’ lives. The legal process, however, is complex and time consuming. An experienced probate attorney will help you navigate the intricacies of the process and ensure your adoption matter moves forward as quickly and easily as possible.

Probate Litigation

Many estates, guardianships, and adoptions flow smoothly through the process. Sometimes, however, the assistance of an attorney is necessary to protect you rights and interests in a probate matter. Attorney Elgin has experience litigating probate matters and can ensure your interests are protected. When a fiduciary acts badly or when someone hides estate assets, prompt action is needed to protect beneficiaries and the estate. We can help.


Sometimes you need a fresh start. Bankruptcy protection may be that fresh start for you. Many individuals are able to reduce debt, bring payments current, and reorganize their financial affairs through the bankruptcy process. Attorney Jonathon "JC" Elgin can guide you through the process and make sure it is the best tool for your situation.
