Ann Arbor Probate Lawyer

HouseDealing with end-of-life issues can be stressful and uncomfortable, but the help of a knowledgeable lawyer can take away much of the burden for you and your family. At Fessler Law, P.C., I provide respectful, personalized assistance with all of your probate and estate planning needs. I serve clients in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and throughout the surrounding area.

Do You Have A Plan In Place?

Whether you are a retiree or a new parent, it is critical to have a plan in place for what will happen when you pass away. This is not an easy subject for most people to address, but the alternative — not having a plan — is far worse.

I can assist you with various aspects of estate planning, including:

  • Wills and trusts
  • Health care directives/living wills
  • Powers of attorney

By taking care of these issues now, you will have peace of mind knowing that your children are properly cared for, both financially and through a guardianship. In addition, I can help you find solutions for avoiding probate, such as creating a trust and properly titling your assets.

Dealing With Probate Court

If you still have assets in your name after you die (such as your house), those assets go through probate court. Unfortunately, probate is sometimes unavoidable. As an experienced Ann Arbor probate attorney, I can assist you with this cumbersome process. If a relative passes away and the estate has to be probated, I can handle the complex issues involved in administration.

If you are involved in a dispute, I will provide strong representation on your behalf. I have successfully litigated numerous cases in probate court — on behalf of both personal representatives and beneficiaries who had been wronged.
