About Guy Tweed
Guy Tweed is a graduate of the Case Western Reserve University School of Law and entered the practice of law in 1974 as a VISTA (Volunteers In Service To America) attorney with the Cincinnati Legal Aid Society. Since that time he has used the law to protect the rights of thousands of individuals in a myriad of forums, including trial and appellate courts throughout the state of Ohio. Mr. Tweed remains committed to the principle that justice in America requires real accessibility to the legal system for all.
Mr. Tweed has found that the U.S. Bankruptcy Code is possibly the most effective Consumer Protection legislation in existence today. When used properly, the Bankruptcy Code provides a safe haven for an orderly reorganization of the financial life of an individual, and, at the same time, allows for the treatment of all legitimate claims in a fair and equitable manner. Like all tools, bankruptcy can be abused, but when used properly, a bankruptcy frequently results in a win-win situation for both the debtor and the creditor.
Mr. Tweed is an experienced litigator at both the trial and appellate court levels. When the interests of his clients require court action, he is ready, willing and able to fully and aggressively litigate their claims. At the same time, he recognizes that litigation can be both expensive and time-consuming and is frequently not the best or most cost-effective way to resolve a controversy.
Probate Practice (Estates and Guardianships)
The Ohio Probate Code is designed to and does protect the interests of those who are unable to protect themselves or who are beneficiaries or creditors of a decedent’s Estate. The Ohio probate procedure, however, can be both complicated and expensive, and there are serious financial consequences that can result from not properly attending to the probate process. Complicating matters, individuals frequently encounter the probate process at an emotionally difficult time in their lives. Mr. Tweed strives to help his clients through the probate procedure in a competent and cost effective manner, keeping in mind the emotional difficulties that are sometimes inherent in the situation.
