At this meeting, attorney Timothy R. Brookes will address the "Trials and Tribulations of Probate Practice."

The program begins promptly at 6:30 p.m. at the funeral home. Light refreshments served. No charge. Reservations are required by contacting Roberta or Cynthia at 330-385-9050 by Aug. 8.
Brookes is an East Liverpool native and a 1972 graduate of East Liverpool High School. Following his graduation from Kent State University, he received his juris doctorate from the Ohio State University College of Law in 1979 and has been in private practice ever since. Specializing mainly in real estate and probate work, he and his wife, Linda, maintain their office in downtown East Liverpool. He has been an acting judge since 1987, and has served as counsel for the Port Authority since 2001.
As president of the East Liverpool Historical Society, he has overseen the complete renovation of the Thompson House and often runs tours of the historical building. In his spare time, he enjoys speaking about Civil War history and Pretty Boy Floyd, as well as other local history.
