Estate Planning Lawyer

It is never too late or too early to begin planning for the future. At the Law Offices of David L. Carrier, P.C., we have assisted families in protecting what they own and preserving what they value for over 34 years. We can guide you through important late in life decisions, such as how you will be cared for in the event you become incapacitated and how your estate will be handled in the event of your death. While these types of decisions are easy to put off, making them now can ensure you remain in control of your assets, while protecting your loved ones from costly probate proceedings and having to make hard choices on your behalf that may run contrary to your wishes.

Estate Planning Services Offered

Proper estate planning requires sitting down and going over your assets and interests, while determining your needs and your desires for those you love. Regardless of the size of your estate, our firm can help ensure you have appropriate legal documents in place, and that your estate plan confirms not only to your wishes, but also to the rules and regulations required by law under the Michigan Estates and Probate Codes.

As part of our comprehensive approach to estate planning, we can assist you with the following:

  • Establishing and updating your will to ensure your estate is distributed according to your wishes.
  • Designating beneficiaries for financial accounts and insurance.
  • Delegating financial power of attorney to someone you trust, which gives them the power to make financial decisions on your behalf in the event you are incapacitated.
  • Choosing someone to act as your healthcare power of attorney for medical decisions and HIPAA medical records authorizations.
  • Creating a living will communicating your wishes for end of life care.
  • Establishing trusts to protect your family from costly probate proceedings and to shield assets for tax benefits and in the event you require long term nursing care.

How Estate Planning Benefits You

Estate planning is a smart move that helps you to plan now for whatever lies ahead. In the event you become incapacitated, your estate plan can dictate the terms of the care you receive, and in the event of your passing, you can protect your estate from being subject to Michigan Intestate Succession laws, which could distribute your assets in a way that is contrary to your wishes. You can spare your loved ones from costly and time consuming probate proceedings, while ensuring your property is protected against claims from creditors and lawsuits.

Estate planning provides peace of mind and affords you the luxury of being able to dictate the terms and conditions surrounding end of life issues in a manner most suited to your particular situation.

We’ve helped more than 10,000 families just like yours to ensure their interests and assets are protected.

All individuals who own assets should consider an estate plan.
