If you’re like most people you may be confused about how to start the estate planning process. Will a simple Last Will and Testament take care of my needs, or do I need a living trust? Do I need a power of attorney? What happens if I can no longer make my own medical decisions?
The simple answer is that everyone is different, and every person has a different set of goals and problems that need to be individually addressed. In estate planning, one size does not fit all, and we will work with you to consider all of your needs and desires and help you design a plan that is right for you and your family.
Real Estate Transactions
Buying a new home is exciting, but it can also cause anxiety because it is probably the biggest investment you may ever make. With our thorough knowledge and experience with the intricacies of Michigan real estate law, we can minimize the risks and problems arising out of your real estate sale or purchase and quickly and effectively solve problems that may arise. So, whether you are buying your first home or selling a commercial building, we will demystify the process for you, handle all aspects including purchase agreements, title work, closing documents, mortgage documents and answer all of your questions.

We have helped small and medium-sized businesses in a range of industries, including real estate, sales, manufacturing, and all manner of service industries.
