About Wade Harrison
I was born and raised in Columbus. Upon graduation from Worthington Christian High School in 1984, I was fortunate enough to earn partial athletic and academic scholarships at Judson University (Elgin, Illinois) where I studied communications and played four years of varsity soccer.
After college, I returned to Columbus to study law at Capital University Law School during the evening while during the day, I worked at the Franklin County Probate Court where I served as a law clerk to former probate judges Dick Metcalf and Larry Belskis. Since my graduation from law school and admission to the Ohio Bar in 1993, I have practiced exclusively in the areas of probate, estate planning (wills, trusts, powers of attorney), guardianships and long term planning for seniors, including planning and applying for Medicaid eligibility. I also have significant experience as court-appointed counsel for individuals who are allegedly mentally ill and subject to possible court-ordered psychiatric commitment.
Hope, my wife, who I met at college, does her best to keep me and our three sons in line. Although I continued playing soccer for about fifteen years after college, I’ve since retired my cleats. However, I’ve enjoyed coaching through the Northwest Kiwanis youth soccer program for the past ten years. I also play guitar and bass with the praise and worship team at church.
