When a fiduciary misuses or abuses their responsibilities, a breach of fiduciary duty occurs.

If you or a loved one have fallen victim to this occurrence, Heban, Sommer & Murphree can help devise the best plan of action for your unique case.

Estate Administration

This process involves administering the estate of the deceased. Whether you are the individual appointed by the court to managing the affairs of the deceased or you have general questions in the matter, our Rossford attorneys will provide you with the legal counsel needed to get through this unfamiliar estate administration situation.

Estate Litigation

In Ohio, estate litigation occurs when disputes arise during estate administration. Often times, this process can be costly and time consuming. Heban, Sommer & Murphree has years of experience dealing with cases in estate litigation and can get you through the processes involved as quick and as smooth as possible. By speaking with a litigation lawyer from the firm, you can get the legal counsel you deserve.

Estate Planning

By creating your estate plan with us, you can better prepare for your future and any unexpected events that may arise. With exceptional legal counsel from our firm, you can protect your loved ones as well as the property you have worked so hard for. Now is the time to create a safeguard for your future.


When you prepare for the future and appoint a guardian, you take away the court's control of appointing an individual who is not well-suited for the responsibility. Guardianships occur when parent(s) are unable to care for their minor child or when an individual becomes incapacitated and can no longer care for themselves.

Probate Process

When an individual passes away, they are referred to as the decedent. Their estate is then brought up to the probate court. From there, the decedent's affairs are handled by an appointed individual from the court. The complexity of the estate can greatly impact the length of time involved with the probate process.

Wills & Trusts

Heban, Sommer & Murphree is dedicated to providing clients with the legal counsel needed to create a well-drafted will or trust. By understanding your individual needs, we can get you started in protecting your family and the property you have worked so hard for.
