Trust and estate administration is a core component of our practice. Our lawyers are sensitive to the emotions involved in these matters. We are committed to seeing that your loved one’s wishes are carried out properly. You do not have to deal with these matters alone, whether it is administering a decedent’s estate, a trust, a guardianship or conservatorship. We are here to help you through this. Probate administration of any kind can be a labyrinth of rules and documents.
We regularly and routinely represent clients in probate litigation. There are few law firms that spend as much time litigating probate matters as we do. We are responsible for some of the most important cases in recent Michigan probate jurisprudence. We have both saved and recovered millions of dollars on behalf of our clients.
We have significant experience in contesting wills and trusts and equally significant experience in defending the conduct of trustees or personal representatives against the claims of a dis-enchanted surviving sibling or spouse. We regularly pursue and defend matters involving questions of mental capacity, undue influence and breaches of fiduciary duty.
These cases can be complex and often involve unique litigation, jurisdiction, probate and tax issues. We are experienced, knowledgeable and tough.
When you turn to our team to assist with the probate and estate administration process, you will find that we have the knowledge, the experience and the skill that you would expect to get at a much larger firm. You will also find that we are committed to providing personal attention in every case we handle. That level of personalization is becoming increasingly rare at large, impersonal law offices, but it is critical to who we are.
