Estate Planning in Ann Arbor to Help Protect Your Family’s Financial Future
An estate plan is more than a will, a trust, or a fancy binder full of papers–more than a free dinner and a slick presentation.
Estate planning is the vital first step in helping ensure that your loved ones are provided for in the event of the unexpected, and it’s serious business. It’s peace of mind—knowing that you have taken the time to plan for and protect your family’s future.
Why do I need an Estate Plan?
Sadly, as many as seven out of ten people leave this world without having prepared an estate plan, often burdening their families with confusion, frustration, court costs, legal fees and, in some cases, estate taxes that could have been avoided if they’d only planned ahead.
Why let a judge determine who will benefit from your hard work or who will have custody of your minor children? Make these important decisions for yourself.
It’s Time to Get Started
There is no better time than today to plan for your future and for that of your loved ones with a comprehensive estate plan, including:

When my father-in-law, Chuck, was suddenly taken to the hospital with heart issues, he realized that he needed to “get his affairs in order.” Chris met us at the hospital that afternoon to discuss Chuck’s wishes. He was compassionate and understanding, without a lot of the confusing ‘legal speak.’
A Final Will and Testament shared by one client named his ex-spouse and the adult children from that marriage as the heirs of his estate. That could have caused severe financial hardship for his current wife and new baby. A phone call to Chris solved the problem.
Chris will go out of his way to help his clients. The elderly mother of a mutual client of ours was going to have an operation and needed financial documents drawn-up promptly. Chris drafted the documents and took them to the hospital for the family to review and sign, since they could not come to the office.
