Wayne County Estate Administration Attorney
If you need an estate administration lawyer whose familiarity with the procedures and practices of the Wayne County Probate Court can help you avoid delays and expense, contact the Plymouth law firm of Wade A. Myers, P.C. If you're a personal representative named under a will that needs to go through probate, or if you've been appointed to administer an intestate estate, our experience and concentrated attention to your case can make a significant difference in the time it takes to discharge your duties. We also provide estate administration services in Oakland County, Washtenaw County, and Livingston County.
We can help with such responsibilities as establishing the validity of the will and determining whether the decedent's estate can be handled under unsupervised probate administration, which will help streamline and speed the process along. We'll assemble, inventory, and liquidate the assets of the estate as appropriate, and prepare and file any necessary accountings. Additionally, we handle estate tax returns and the final distribution and transfer of assets to heirs and legatees.
If you live out of state and need to administer a southeast Michigan probate estate, we can perform the personal representative's functions on your behalf, so that you will not need to make repeated trips back to Michigan.
In estates involving revocable living trusts or other trust instruments, we also work with successor trustees to make sure that the assets are properly transferred and titled, and that fiduciary tax returns are timely filed.
In cases where the validity of the will or the testamentary capacity of the decedent is in doubt, we can represent either the estate or a challenging heir in probate litigation.
