Eastpointe lawyer works with clients to draft authoritative wills

If you die in Michigan without a valid will, your property will be distributed according to the state’s intestacy regulations rather than your own wishes. Our firm advises you on each aspect of drafting a will, including:

  • Naming a personal representative — You can designate a trusted individual to carry out the instructions listed in the will. With a full understanding of an executor’s duties, you can make an informed choice for that role.
  • Transferring your assets — We set forth clear terms within the document to avert potential complications for your heirs. If you have questions about tax consequences, contingent beneficiaries or leaving assets to charity, our firm will thoroughly explain your options.
  • Reviewing an existing will — Circumstances and priorities change over the course of a lifetime, and these changes often mean that your will is out of date if it hasn’t been revised. Our firm reviews existing wills and makes any revisions that you think are appropriate.

We provide a free initial consultation to help you understand the process and benefits of creating a will.

Knowledgeable counselor establishes trusts for efficient property transfers

Many people believe that trusts only benefit the wealthy, but trusts can help any property owner who seeks to avoid probate or wishes to control how his or her assets will be used. Living trusts are popular options for individuals who wish to transfer property upon their death without the delay and expense of will execution. In a living trust, a person can maintain control over their property during their lifetime by appointing themselves as trustee. Our firm can explain the potential tax advantages of living trusts and other types of trusts and help you create a trust that suits your unique estate planning goals.
