Ann Arbor Estate Planning Lawyer

Overview

I have been providing estate and elder law planning for clients since 1985. During my 25 years of practice, I have been able to reach hundreds of people who are concerned about protecting their families from the devastating legal and financial effects of disability and death. The aspect of my practice I enjoy most is that it allows me to serve as the trusted advisor and counselor for many families in the greater Ann Arbor area.

Our firm is staffed with experienced individuals trained in the complex areas of probate, trust, Medicaid, and tax law. The aim of each member of the firm is to help you accomplish your goals and to take the mystery out of the planning process. When you work with our office, your planning documents will be explained in straightforward language that you and your family can understand. If you take advantage of our services, your loved ones will be relieved of needless attorney's fees and government interference in settling your estate. Most importantly, you will have peace of mind knowing your loved ones are protected.

I grew up the middle child of seven brothers in Traverse City. I came to Ann Arbor to attend the University of Michigan and never left. I now live in Dexter. Like many of my fellow Ann Arborites, I am an avid Michigan football fan. I am a widower with two daughters. My youngest, Chelsea, recently graduated from Michigan State University and her older sister, Murphy, attends Washtenaw Community College. For fun, I enjoy being involved in my community. I have been appointed to various boards and commissions by Governors, City Council, Boards of Trustees and Boards of Education. Currently, I serve as the attorney for the Pittsfield Seniors, which is the largest senior program in Washtenaw County. I also serve on the Board of Directors of Gilbert's Residence, a non-profit assisted living and nursing care facility.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
