We focus our efforts on legal services for the common person.
Everyone over the age of 18 needs an estate plan, whether that means a power of attorney, a will, or something more sophisticated.
We try to take the confusion and headache out of estate planning. We do so on a client-by-client basis.
Our firm focuses on Estate Planning to protect your assets, and to provide your family and loved ones with the tools necessary to care for you and your assets during periods of disability, and following your death.
What We Do
If you have people in your life you care about, you need an estate plan. An estate plan can help you manage the uncertainties that arise after death. It will provide your family with privacy, control, and flexibility at a time when they need it most.
After a loved one passes away, the probate administration allows for effective management and distribution of the deceased individual’s assets. The probate process refers to the process of filing a will in court and administering the estate. Though most people associate probate proceedings with a "last will and testament," intestate estates (when a person dies without a will) can also go through the probate process and be administered under the laws of the State of Michigan. We can help you understand the probate administration process and can offer assistance and legal advice to another individual who is administering a probate estate.
Many of us have relatives, friends, or colleagues who are challenged on a daily basis by some type of incapacitating physical, mental, or developmental disability. In days past, the families of disabled persons often kept their personal circumstances a secret; the disability of a loved one was a taboo subject that was not to be discussed openly. To make matters worse, very few competent professional advisors were available to help plan for the “special needs” of disabled persons. Left on their own, many disheartened families had limited options to ensure appropriate care for disabled relatives after their primary caregivers died or grew too old and infirm to provide the necessary care.
