James T. Stimler is an OSBA Certified Specialist in Estate Planning, Trust & Probate Law


Attorney Stimler represents individuals; businesses; manufacturers; professional service providers, such as doctor groups and dentists; real estate investors; and contractors who have asset management concerns in a variety of legal matters. Attorney Stimler’s interdisciplinary approach and depth of legal experience make him uniquely qualified to help his clients develop and execute successful business and succession plans, estate plans and other legal strategies specific to his client’s asset management needs. 

OSBA certification is a voluntary process that requires a commitment to excellence. Ohio attorneys who are certified as specialists by the Ohio State Bar Association must take and pass a written examination in their specialty field, demonstrate a high level of substantial involvement in the specialty area, fulfill ongoing education requirements and be favorably evaluated by other attorneys and judges familiar with their work.

There are only approximately 160 attorneys in the state of Ohio, and only 6 attorneys in Summit County, who, like Attorney Stimler, have earned the Certified Specialist designation in Estate Planning, Trust & Probate Law as of 2015.
