How We Help | Our Estate Planning Services
We work with our clients to create estate plans that protect their assets, reduce conflict and stress for their families, and ensure that future healthcare decisions follow their wishes. We use legal tools like wills & trusts, power of attorney, and advance directives to help you stay in charge of your life and property.
No matter how old you are or how much you own, you need an estate plan. A basic will can ensure that your assets pass to the right people and, if necessary, that the proper person assumes guardianship of your minor children. A power of attorney (POA) authorizes your chosen agent to act in your place if you become incapacitated. Strategic planning can also reduce tax liability for larger estates with the use of a trust and other tools implemented by our team.
Probate courts in Michigan handle two main areas: (1) estate administration and (2) guardianships and conservatorships. After someone dies, most of their assets must pass through probate, except accounts with designated beneficiaries and assets you’ve placed in a living trust.
We can help you set up a revocable living trust to save your beneficiaries the trouble and costs of probate. We can also issue powers of attorney so your family doesn’t need to file for guardianship or conservatorship in case you become incapacitated.
As a church leader, you may be responsible not only for your congregation’s current well-being but also for the future of your church after your retirement or passing. You need a comprehensive succession plan that addresses situations like severe illness, death, and leadership transitions.
We help churches of all sizes avoid chaos, promote unity, and keep advancing the Lord’s Word with wise succession planning. “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil.”
