Last Will and Testament: Estate Distribution

The Legal Language Can Make a Difference

Preparing a last will and testament is a necessity for your loved ones, so that your wishes regarding how your assets are distributed are adhered to as you directed. Even the most carefully and correctly written will can be subject to challenge - but less likely to be successful. At Shifman & Carlson, P.C. we have over 100 years of combined experience in estate planning and all of the many issues that are part of the process, including wills. Our Oakland County probate attorneys have received an AV® rating from Martindale-Hubbell®, or "preeminent" and pride themselves on providing clients with a professional, well-crafted estate plan that will benefit their family or other heirs, as they direct.

Having a last will and testament that is clearly stated and that can be executed easily is crucial if one wishes to provide his or her heirs with resources once they are deceased. Preparing a last will and testament that contains no vague or ambiguous terms may spare your family from probate litigation between relatives. An Oakland County probate lawyer can help you to ensure that no matter is left unspoken and that no room for error is left to anyone that is interpreting your last will and testament. Even such things as naming a guardian for a minor if one were to pass away should not be overlooked. If for any reason your family were left to fend for themselves it would benefit them greatly to have your intentions laid out clearly so that they cannot be misconstrued. If you wish to discuss your last will and testament with an Oakland County probate attorney from our firm, we will happily answer any questions you may have.

Put Your Future in Good Hands

Without a clearly stated will and testament, one is leaving the future of his or her family in the hands of the state. Having your assets distributed as prescribed by law may not be in your family's best interests, or reflect your wishes. If you die intestate (with no will), your "estate planner" becomes the State of Michigan. We have proudly served Michigan clients with a combined experience of 100 years. We have handled all aspects of probate law and are happy to answer any questions you may have regarding your last will and testament.
