Probate Services After a Loved One Has Passed

We help estate executors and administrators smoothly transfer the assets of their loved one's estate. We handle complex accounting to help ensure compliance with Michigan state regulations. We do everything possible to avoid conflict among beneficiaries, but we are also well-equipped to handle probate litigation such as will contests.

Because of our firm's experience in both estate planning and litigation, our lawyers invest a wide range of knowledge and experience into every estate administration or probate case. If you are currently facing probate court, you know how complex and confusing it can be. If you need guardianships, conservatorships or estates established or a trial attorney for probate litigation, we can help.

Estate Planning

By articulating your wishes today, you can save your loved ones from having to make difficult decisions in the future. Our lawyers provide a wide variety of estate planning services, including:

  • Wills and trusts
  • Health care declarations/living wills
  • Powers of attorney

Estate Planning for Domestic Partnerships. Even if you are not able to marry legally in the state of Michigan, you can still use wills, powers of attorney and other estate planning instruments to grant your partner many of the same legal protections marriage would afford. You should speak to a qualified attorney to learn more.

Care for Elderly Loved Ones

If an elderly loved one becomes unable to make competent decisions regarding finances, medical treatment and day-to-day living, we can help in one of two ways: first, if you have drafted a power of attorney, we can help you enact it; second, if you have not drafted a power of attorney, we can help you implement a conservatorship or a guardianship to give you or another trusted individual the authority to make decisions on behalf of your loved one.

We provide counsel for conservators to help them meet stringent state accounting requirements. We also provide experienced litigation services when disputes erupt over the care of an elderly loved one.
