Representing Clients in Sharonville, OH
Sharonville is a city which is home to more than 13,560 residents across two different counties. Sharonville lies both within Butler County and Hamilton County, although the total city area is just 9.89 square miles. Sharonville was first known as Sharon when settlers arrived in the local area in 1788. The village of Sharon was incorporated in 1911, and in 1962 it received its city rights. Today, Sharonville is considered to be a part of the greater Cincinnati metropolitan area. It is home to the Heritage Village Museum, to a campus of the Great Oaks Institute of Technology, and to a Ford-owned Sharonville Transmission plant which spans a full square mile within the city.
Sharonville has a median household income of $47,066 and a median age of 39 years. While people of all ages can benefit from getting elder law services provided by Zimmer Law Firm, there are also many older people living within Sharonville who are well above the median age and who would especially benefit from taking prompt action to address estate and elder law issues.
Senior Citizens in Sharonville
In Sharonville, 14.6 percent of households are made up of someone who is at least 65 years old and who lives by himself or by herself. For many seniors, both those living alone and with family, there will come a day when nursing home care is required. Unfortunately, this can be extremely expensive.
Many seniors have to spend down their whole life savings in order to cover the costs of nursing home care. If you have made an advanced plan, however, this will not happen to you. This is because you can get legal help from Zimmer Law Firm to protect property you own in Sharonville as well as to protect all of your assets. If you act at least five years before you have to get nursing home care, you can keep your nest egg safe and get Medicaid to pay for your nursing home bills.
Providing assistance to seniors in protecting assets is just one of many things that our firm does for older people in the Sharonville area.

Courts in Sharonville Addressing Estate Issues
For those who live in Sharonville or own property there, it is important to understand what courts may preside over probate and guardianship cases. Guardianship proceedings may become necessary when someone is incapacitated and hasn’t made an advanced plan that includes giving someone authority to act on their behalf. Probate proceedings are required after a death, unless steps have been taken to avoid the probate process.
Sharonville is located in both Butler County and Hamilton County in Ohio. This can make it more confusing to determine where a probate or guardianship case must take place. This is because each county has different courts which preside over these issues. For example:
- The Hamilton County Probate Court can be found on the 10th Floor at 230 E 9th St, Cincinnati, OH 45202. The telephone number to reach the Hamilton County probate court is (513) 946-3600.
- The Butler County Probate Court can be found at 101 High St., Hamilton, OH 45011. The telephone number to reach this court is 513-887-3294.
Zimmer Law Firm knows the court systems which matter for estate planning and elder law issues in Sharonville. We will help you to try to avoid having your personal matters end up in court, but can also represent you in situations where estate matters must come before a judge.
