If you spend even a few minutes online, or flipping through the yellow pages, you’ll quickly realize that there is no shortage of lawyers in Southeast Michigan. So why should you choose us to craft your family’s estate plan? Please consider the following:
We focus exclusively on elder law, Medicaid and estate planning.
We believe that estate planning should not be an afterthought for you or your lawyer. Your family deserves a plan created by an attorney who focuses on this area of the law. Even if you choose not to work with us, we hope you will work with an attorney who focuses on elder law, Medicaid, estate planning, and closely related practice areas.
A personal, caring approach to the practice of law.
Estate planning and elder law often involve discussions about sensitive and emotional topics. It is much easier, and more productive, to have discussions like these with attorneys who are naturally empathetic and passionate about their work. Our attorneys derive a great deal of professional and personal satisfaction from working closely with clients. We will devote the time and energy to ask the right questions, clearly explain your planning options, and walk you through the entire process—all while making you feel like family.
We’re committed to providing exemplary client service.
The biggest complaint people have about lawyers is that they never return phone calls and emails. Our attorneys will respond to your questions quickly and keep you “in the loop” during the planning process.
We offer a variety of educational resources.
We hold complimentary workshops throughout the year, provide clients with quarterly estate planning and elder law newsletters, and discuss the latest legal trends in our blog. The more you know about your plan, the more confident you’ll be that it will accomplish your goals—which in turn will lead to greater peace of mind.
We design customized, comprehensive plans.
Some attorneys, particularly those who do not primarily practice estate planning, take what we call a “cookie cutter” approach to planning. That is, every plan is basically the same, a collection of standard legal documents with little thought given to the client’s unique situation and goals. Our plans are comprehensive. Every element of your plan will work together to create an effective whole.
