Do I have to get an attorney for probate court?
Legal practice in the probate court is restricted by law to attorneys who are licensed by the Ohio Supreme Court. If an individual wishes to handle his or her own case he or she may do so; however, they may not represent others. Due to the complexity of the law and the desire to avoid costly errors many individuals who have filings before the court choose to be represented by an attorney. Deputy clerks of the probate court are prevented by law from practicing law, and, therefore, are limited in the amount of advice they are permitted to give to the public.

Can I sue my insurance agent for messing up my coverage?
Q. I was recently involved in a serious car accident caused by a person with no insurance. When I made a claim against my own insurance company for uninsured motorist coverage I was astonished to learn that my uninsured motorist coverage is a fraction of what I thought it was. I was further astonished to learn that I had no medical pay coverage. Do I have a case against my insurance agent for professional negligence when I was under the impression at all times that I had full coverage?
