Thomas K. Stone

Thomas K. Stone, Esq., Principal / Owner

Thomas K. Stone, Esquire has been licensed in the Commonwealth of Kentucky since 1984. He received his Juris Doctorate from the University of Louisville, School of Law. Mr. Stone and his legal group help protect your assets in the following areas:

  • Estate Planning
  • Probate
  • Bonded Trustee, Power of Attorney, Curator and Representative Payee
  • Mediation

Mr. Stone’s primary concentration is personalizing the practice of law and building lifelong relationships with his clients. Ever vigilant of changing times, Stone Legal Group, PLLC remains current in all aspects of the law including, but not limited to, protecting your assets today and after your passing. Never assume your estate will be administered to your needs and wishes without first contacting a qualified attorney. You never want to leave your family in chaos.

Throughout Mr. Stone’s tenure as an attorney, he has helped individuals who had no family or friends who were able to step in to take care of their affairs due to declining health issues, Alzheimer’s, dementia, disability or death. On a personal note, Mr. Stone provided his wealth of estate planning knowledge in helping his grandmother with her affairs after she became widowed at the age of 70.

Mr. Stone’s grandfather had always handled all their financial affairs and upon his death, Mr. Stone’s grandmother was without her lifelong partner and had to enter into her new life as a widow and taking over her own financial affairs for the first time in her life. Mr. Stone’s grandmother lived a long and eventful life until she died just shy of 100 years old and was able to do so with the assistance of Mr. Stone. Through Mr. Stone’s assistance, an estate plan was put into place relieving her of this new unwanted responsibility. His grandmother was able to travel the world for the first time, riding camels in Egypt, saw the Passion Play in Germany, and even getting to fulfill a lifelong dream of kissing the Blarney Stone in Ireland. This experience has provided the guiding principle of how each client should be treated and is treated at Stone Legal Group, PLLC.

In addition, over the past 30 years, Thomas K. Stone has served as a Bonded Trustee, Power of Attorney, Curator and Representative Payee for individuals who had no family members or friends to act on their behalf when the time came that they were unable to handle own affairs. Each of these individuals received the same level of personalized care and attention as Mr. Stone provided for his grandmother.

When Thomas K. Stone is out of the office, he enjoys spending time with his family and pets, boating, traveling, gardening and theatre.

I've worked in the legal field for 30 years and I've known Tom Stone for more than 25 years. He has drafted estate planning documents not only for me but for family members and friends. He takes the time necessary to listen to his clients, to gather all of the information needed, and prepares high quality, professional estate planning documents that I know comport with my wishes and which I can rely upon to take care of my family. When people ask me for a recommendation for an estate planning attorney, I never hesitate to give them Tom's name.

Tom Stone has given me both personal and professional legal advice. When my mother became ill and needed to be put in a Nursing Home, Tom gave me advice about the necessary powers of attorney that we would need to both be able to administer her affairs and protect her finances.

Tom prepared a will for me. He made the process simple, quick and easy. I'm so thankful that its done and it's one less worry for me.
Donna Tribble
I had a very positive experience with the Stone Legal Group. Making out a Will can be very personal and at times emotional. Tom was very thorough and actually made it quite easy. I feel good that I have everything in place for my family for their future. Thank you Tom.

Tom provided great insight and direction in multiple situations. He helped me navigate the administrators responsibilities for my father's estate. He explained different options for distribution of assets. Personally he helped to amend my Living Trust and other documents. His advice is non biased but thoughtful. I would and have recommended him to colleagues and friends.
