Wills and Trusts in Michigan

By creating a written will, you determine such things as who will receive your assets, who will be the personal representative of your estate, and who will be the guardian for your minor children.

Michigan Probate Administration

Probate court administration can be time-consuming and difficult even under the best of circumstances, and I can help relieve the burden by walking you through the process and taking care of the paperwork for you.

Powers of Attorney

Selecting a Patient Advocate is not a decision to be taken lightly and I will help educate you to select the best person to make medical decisions on your behalf.

Estate and Gift Tax

I will work with you to determine how your beneficiaries can retain as much of your estate as possible. Some strategies available include setting up a trust, transferring assets before death, or joint ownership of property.

Business Succession Planning

I work closely with the owners of family-owned businesses to ensure that through the appropriate tools of estate planning and business documentation, the vision and legacy of your company is carried on into the future.

Real Estate Joint Ownership

I have extensive experience in joint ownership and taxation rules in Michigan and will work with you to make sure that your property transfers to the correct persons and does not accidentally uncap the property taxes.

Who will obtain possession of your firearms when you pass away? If you own firearms required to be registered by the National Firearms Act (NFA), that question may not have a simple answer.

What will happen to your beloved pets when you pass? It is becoming more and more common that special arrangements be made for our four-legged friends before we die.
