Legal Disclaimer
Legal practice in the Probate Court is restricted by law to attorneys who are licensed by the Supreme Court of Ohio. If an individual wishes to handle his or her own case, that person may do so, however, such person may not represent others. Due to the complexity of the law and the desire to avoid costly errors, most individuals who have matters before the Court are represented by an attorney. Deputy Clerks are prohibited by statute from practicing law which includes giving legal advice, instructions on which forms are required or how to fill out forms.
