Areas of Practice

  • Estate Planning
  • Family Law

David UmbaughDavid G. Umbaugh has been engaged in the private practice of law in northeast Ohio for more than 40 years. He represents clients throughout Hudson, Ohio, and surrounding communities in legal matters including estate planning, probate, probate and trust settlement, family law, and probate and trust disputes. In addition to his experience as a probate and estate planning lawyer, David is a trained collaborative family lawyer and mediator.

Through his estate planning practice, David provides advice, counseling and the required documents to carefully plan for not only death, but also the possibility of his client’s serious disability.

David also offers guidance as to the most cost-effective way to administer a probate or trust settlement process so that the intended beneficiaries receive their inheritance as inexpensively and as quickly as possible.

Estate disputes occasionally arise when a beneficiary believes there has been improper asset distribution after the death of a loved one. A probate or trust dispute resolution may involve mediation, the collaborative law process or litigation. David has advocated for his clients' rights in claims including will contests, challenging an executor’s actions, and other matters when the executor or trustee did not perform his or her duties properly.

As a collaborative family lawyer, David represents clients who, when marriage counseling fails, must undertake a divorce, and who wish to engage in a non-adversary, child-friendly, no-court divorce.  He has assisted many northeast Ohio families in achieving an amicable divorce, while working to keep the best interests of the children in mind.
