Aaron H. Kaplan

AARON H. KAPLAN is an associate in the Private Client practice group of Taft Stettinius & Hollister LLP.  He focuses his practice on estate planning, probate administration and trust administration, providing counsel to individuals, families, small businesses and tax-exempt organizations.  Aaron currently serves on the board of the Greater Cincinnati Planned Giving Council, and he is a member of the Cincinnati Bar Association’s Basic Estate Planning Seminar Steering Committee and the Dan Beard Council (Boy Scouts of America) Planned Giving Committee.  Aaron also recently completed C-Change Class 10, an intensive leadership development and community engagement program sponsored by the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber.

Aaron has worked with estate planning clients on matters such as dynasty trusts, trusts for children with special needs, planning for international clients who may be new to Cincinnati or new to the United States, the minimization of estate, gift and generation-skipping transfer taxes, business succession planning for small businesses and privately held entities, charitable trusts, Ohio Legacy Trusts, and related wealth transfer issues.  He feels, though, that the most rewarding aspect of estate planning is simply the ability to serve personally as a trusted family advisor and thereby counsel clients of all ages and all circumstances through important family concerns around things like inheritance, incapacity, and asset protection – often at the most difficult times.  Whether a client’s needs are as simple as a will to name guardians for minor children or a review of old estate documents or whether that client needs sophisticated estate tax planning, Aaron is ready to help.

Aaron received his Bachelor of Arts in political science from the University of Michigan and graduated with honors from Georgetown University Law Center. While in law school, he served on the staff of the Georgetown Journal of Law and Public Policy and participated in the Harrison Institute Housing and Community Development Clinic, one of the longest-running clinical education programs in the nation.  After law school, as was always the plan, he returned to practice law in his hometown of Cincinnati.  Aaron lives in the Loveland area of Clermont County with his wife and son.
