John F. Hall has been practicing law in Sandusky County, Ohio, for over 35 years. His general practice gave him the chance to become well versed in several different areas of the law, including estate planning and tax law, probate, civil matters, real property and business law.
When John Hall decided to focus his practice on elder law, estate planning, and probate, he immersed himself in the subject by joining the American Academy of Estate Planning Attorneys (AAEPA).
AAEPA supports attorneys across the country by providing them with the critical continuing legal education needed to properly counsel clients on all estate planning needs. The AAEPA membership is dedicated to helping clients effectively plan their estates, while at the same time helping them retain control over their assets and their lives.
John Hall believes that “by gaining an understanding of our clients’ lives, loves and their desire to leave a legacy, we learn together how to effectively plan for control, growth and preservation of assets, both personal and financial. Our clients’ ‘Life-plan,’ will be an expression of love for their own life, as well as the individuals and institutions they care about most.”
John Hall is a frequent presenter on elder law topics such as Medicaid estate pans and their components, speaking to professional and trade groups as well as the general public. Mr. Hall earned both his Bachelor’s and Juris Doctor degrees from the University of Toledo. He is a member of his county, state and national Bar associations. A strong proponent for proper legal services for the less fortunate, Mr. Hall is a board member of Advocates for Basic Legal Equality, Legal Services of Northwest Ohio, and he is past volunteer for Pro Seniors, Inc. He also has served on his county Child Abuse Prevention Board and is a former assistant county prosecutor and pro bono counsel for various schools, school boards and community organizations.
