Probate Law

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

            I am a Probate, Estate, and Elder Law attorney serving Wayne, Oakland, Livingston, and Washtenaw Counties. I am a resident of Livonia, and my office is conveniently located in the charming City of Plymouth, Michigan, neighboring the beautiful communities of Livonia, Canton, and Northville. As an attorney, my ultimate goal is to offer my clients optimal legal services at highly competitive client cost, primarily in the specialized areas of: Probate, Estate, 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 in Michigan is skyrocketing.  In Wayne, Oakland, Livingston and Washtenaw counties, the cost of nursing home care is now averaging $65,000 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. Thus, you can rest assured that one attorney is handling your estate planning, Medicaid concerns, and any Probate litigation that may arise.

           As a Probate, Estate, and Elder Law attorney, I have developed and maintained contact with numerous healthcare professionals, accountants, 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. Like me, these professionals will gladly serve in Washtenaw, Livingston, and Oakland, as well as Wayne County.  

           In addition to my Probate, Estate, and Elder Law practice, my office offers service in the areas of General Civil (including business) Litigation, Divorce and Family Law, Lemon Law/Consumer Protection, and Criminal Defense.  Although I am most often found in courts in Wayne, Oakland, Livingston and Washtenaw counties, I represent my clients throughout Southeastern Michigan, commonly including Monroe and Genesee counties. 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 optimal legal services in Probate, Estate, and Elder Law at reasonable rates. Andremember, you need not be a resident of Plymouth-Canton, Livonia, or Northville for me to serve you. I would be happy to discuss your legal concerns in any jurisdiction in Wayne, Oakland, Livingston, and Washtenaw counties, or elsewhere in Michigan, as needed.

           If I can assist you 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.

          I am here to help.
