Estate Planning and Probate Lawyers in Grand Rapids
Wills, Trusts, Powers of Attorney
No matter what your net worth, it’s important to have a basic estate plan in place. Your estate plan tells the world – and most importantly, your loved ones - how you want your assets distributed when you pass away. It also permits you to decide who will be the guardians for your children, who will manage your finances if you become incapacitated, and who will make significant medical decisions for you if you become unable to make them for yourself. You can trust our experienced team to assist you in the process from start to finish.
