Michigan Estate Planning Lawyers

Estate Planning Attorneys

Michigan family with an Estate Plan

Happy Family of 4 have an Estate Plan in place.

Estate planning involves far more than drafting a will. Do you want to avoid probate? If so, why? Should you be concerned about having to pay federal estate taxes? If you are a business owner, do you have a succession plan in place for your business? Do you need a trust, or is a will sufficient? Does a “Will” avoid probate? You can get answers to these and your other estate planning questions from the attorneys at TULL & LAUBACH.
