Wade E. Harrison wharrison@mmpdlaw.com

Wade was born and raised in Columbus, a native of Upper Arlington. Upon graduation from Worthington Christian High School in 1984, he was recruited by Judson University (Elgin, Illinois), where he played four years of varsity soccer and earned his BA in Communications.

After college, Wade returned to Columbus to study law at Capital University Law School during the evening while maintaining his day job as a law clerk at the Franklin County Probate Court for former probate judges Richard Metcalf and Larry Belskis. Since his graduation from law school and admission to the Ohio Bar in 1993, Wade has 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. He also has significant experience as court-appointed counsel for individuals who are allegedly mentally ill and subject to possible court-ordered psychiatric commitment.

Wade is a member of the Columbus and Ohio State Bar Associations, and is admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court. He is a frequent presenter to both attorneys and laypersons on topics of estate planning, probate and Medicaid. In addition to having his own practice in Clintonville, he enjoys his “of counsel” relationship with Manos, Martin & Pergram.

Wade and his wife, Hope, do their best to keep their three teen-age sons in line. Although Wade continued playing soccer for about fifteen years after college, he has since retired his cleats. However, he has enjoyed coaching through the Northwest Kiwanis youth soccer program for the past ten years. Occasionally, Wade plays guitar and bass with the praise and worship team at church.
