Probate is a Serious and Complicated Legal Procedure
Please accept our deepest sympathies for the loss of your loved one. It is hardly fair that after you have had to suffer through their illness, death and funeral that you need to put their affairs in order.
Many people find the court-supervised probate process very confusing and costly. That’s because it is. Consider these things: 1) There are four types of probate processes available ranging from no supervision at all to full blown court supervision;
2) No bank will accept your ability to access funds (unless you are named on the account) without court orders granting you permission;
3) The lack of a will may create unintended heirs;
4) The will may be so old that it is in fact ineffective;
5) Creditors may file false claims;
6) Heirs may assert false claims to the estate assets;
7) If you do it wrong you can be held personally liable for the loss to the estate!

A Skilled Probate Lawyer Will Protect Your Interests
I have been successfully practicing probate law in the Detroit area for over 30 years. I fully understand the complexities of Michigan’s legal system. The practice of law is an inter-related discipline. True specialization is a myth except for very narrow areas of the law. I practice in multiple areas of the law and understand how one area of practice affects other areas. My fees are reasonable and I take all major credit cards. Contact me for more information on how to obtain the services of an experienced probate lawyer.
