Areas of Practice

Elder Law

At McFadden Bushnell, we focus on helping older individuals and their loved ones to navigate the legal and financial challenges that often come up as people age. Seniors face unique obstacles as they get older, both financially and medically. Proper planning can help considerably in overcoming – and often avoiding – those obstacles. 

Veterans Benefits

Caring for aging veterans can often be challenging financially. What many families do not realize is for wartime veterans benefits may be available from the Department of Veterans Affairs for both veterans and in some circumstances their spouses, as long as the applicant meets certain financial and service requirements. And even if the applicant has more income or assets than is allowed by the VA, with the help of an attorney it may be possible to still qualify through the use of a trust.

Special Needs

Modern medical care continues to increase the life-span of the average person with special needs, making it more important than ever to make sure that they are properly cared for. Our firm provides legal assistance to special needs clients and their families in protecting assets while retaining eligibility for government benefits. 

Probate & Estate Planning

At McFadden Bushnell we guide Ohio families through the complicated estate administration process after a death. We assist executors and administrators in property distribution according to a will, trust, or beneficiary designation. Our lawyers also can recommend the most efficient and least costly options, prepare and file all required documents, and identify available allowances for surviving spouses and minor children.

Estate Planning

At McFadden Bushnell, we help our clients face the future with confidence. We provide guidance and solutions to clients who want to plan effectively for the years ahead. Our estate planning services allow you to make sure your wishes are honored, that your assets are protected and that your loved ones are taken care of. No matter what happens, you will know that you did what you could to take care of the ones you love.


Planning is bringing the future into the present so that you can do something about it now.
