PROBATE, ESTATE, AND ELDER LAW ATTORNEY SERVING WAYNE COUNTY, OAKLAND COUNTY, LIVINGSTON COUNTY, AND WASHTENAW COUNTY.

           PROBATE, ESTATE PLANNING, AND ELDER LAW ATTORNEY PRIMARILY SERVING WAYNE, OAKLAND, LIVINGSTON, AND WASHTENAW COUNTIES

 
            I am a Probate, Estate, and Elder Law attorney serving Wayne, Oakland, Livingston, and Washtenaw Counties. I am a resident of Plymouth Township, and my office is located in the charming City of Plymouth, Michigan, neighboring the wonderful communities of Livonia, Canton, and Northville. As an attorney, my ultimate goal is to offer my clients the very best in legal services at reasonable client cost, primarily in the specialized areas of: Probate, Estate Planning (Wills and Trusts, Powers of Attorney), and Elder Law.

            I handle all Probate and Estate matters, such as Estate Planning (Wills and Trusts), Decedent Estate Administration, Guardianship and Conservatorship, and a sub-specialty of Estate Planning called “Medicaid Eligibility Planning.” The cost of healthcare is skyrocketing.  In Wayne, Oakland, Livingston and Washtenaw counties, the cost of nursing home care is now averaging nearly $100,000 per year.  Given these facts, Medicaid Eligibility Planning is an increasingly crucial issue, involving the conversion of family estate assets in order to preserve them in the unfortunate event that a loved one requires Medicaid coverage of long-term healthcare costs.  Also, unlike many estate planning and Elder Law attorneys, I will litigate Probate matters when necessary, such as contested petitions for guardianship/conservatorship, or contested Wills or Trusts. Thus, you can rest assured that one attorney is handling your family’s estate planning, Medicaid and long-term care concerns, and any Probate litigation that may arise.

           As a Probate, Estate Planning, and Elder Law attorney, I have developed and maintained contact with numerous healthcare professionals, accountants, real estate agents, financial planners, and experts in various fields in the Livonia, Plymouth-Canton, and Northville areas in order to further connect clients with services they may require, beyond legal counsel. 

        In addition to my Probate, Estate Planning, and Elder Law practice, my office offers service in the areas of General Civil Litigation (including business matters), and Divorce and Family Law. Although I am most often found in courts in Wayne, Oakland, Livingston and Washtenaw counties, I represent my clients throughout Southeastern Michigan. Over the years, I have accumulated great experience in all aspects of litigation, from pleadings through motion practice, trial, and appeals. I have practiced extensively and earned the respect of attorneys and judges in district and circuit courts throughout Wayne, Oakland, Livingston and Washtenaw counties. I also have extensive experience in alternative dispute resolution, the methods by which legal disputes can be resolved without trial and with minimal or no litigation.  
 
            I am proud of my ability to offer my clients top-rate legal services in Probate, Estate Planning, and Elder Law at reasonable rates. If I can assist you and your family with any legal services you may require, please do not hesitate to contact my office. The reassurance of having an experienced advocate on your side is only a phone call – or a mouse-click – away.
