Estess, Kim

My practice focuses on estate planning, estate administration, elder law, asset protection, Medicaid, special needs planning and guardianships. I firmly believes that providing outstanding service requires more than just excellent legal work—it also involves taking the time to establish a strong relationship with each client in order to truly understand their unique family situation and goals.

I also have a passion for enriching the Dayton community, so I volunteer with the Greater Dayton Volunteer Lawyer Project and I am currently serving as the Vice President of the Board for the Partnership for Philanthropic Planning of Greater Dayton. I am a member of the Ohio State Bar Association (Estate Planning, Trust and Probate Law Section), the Dayton Bar Association (Estate Planning, Trust and Probate Committee), the Greene County Bar Association, the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, WealthCounsel and ElderCounsel.

I also enjoy public speaking, and I regularly volunteer my time speaking to community organizations on issues such as estate planning, elder law, and guardianships

Statement on Practice by Attorney

My role is to prevent and solve the legal problems of older persons and persons with disabilities or special needs so as to maximize their independence and quality of life and to ensure that they receive any help or care they may need.

What I love about my practice is that it is intensely personal, a one-on-one relationship with my client and my client’s family to maximize my client’s independence and quality of life and to ensure that my client receives the help or care he or she needs. If you call my office, you talk with me and no one else.

My key accomplishment is meeting my client’s needs. In addition, I chaired the Professionalism and Ethics Committee of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys during the drafting of both the First and the Second editions of the Aspirational Standards for the Practice of Elder Law and Special Needs Law.

I went to law school because I wanted to make a difference in people’s lives. My practice has allowed me to do that in numerous areas of the law: long-term care, retirement planning, estate planning, special needs trusts, Medicaid, Medicare, SSI, etc.

I am totally dedicated to meeting the needs of my clients. To do so, I in 1995 was certified as an Elder Law Attorney in the first class of 29 attorneys from across the country to be certified. I also became accredited by the Department of Veterans Affairs, served as President of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, and chaired the Elder Law committees of the Ohio State Bar Association and the Cincinnati Bar Association.

The biggest change in law during my 43 years as an attorney has been how complicated and specialized it has become. That is why I limit my practice to persons who need help to prevent or solve problems relating to aging, disability, or special needs and why I became certified by the Ohio State Bar Association and the National Elder Law Foundation to do so.
