Estate Planning And Probate

Estate planning and probate can involve a broad range of topics, and the legalities can become quite complex for people who are not familiar with them. At Creighton McLean & Shea PLC, we provide quality legal services to clients throughout Livonia and the surrounding area. Whether you need assistance preparing an estate plan or representation as a loved one’s executor, you can rely on us for the thorough representation you need.

Estate Planning Services | Preparing For The Future

There can be a number of ways to approach estate planning and achieving your end-of-life goals. It is never too early to begin planning. In fact, we would propose that every adult should at least have a will and health care directive in place regardless of their age or stage in life.

We have experience in all aspects of estate planning, including:

  • Wills
  • Trusts
  • Powers of attorney and health care directives
  • Ladybird deeds
  • Succession planning
  • Will and trust disputes

We take the time to fully understand your estate planning goals and work with you to develop a plan that fully accommodates them.

Probate Services | Settling The Estate

If you are representing a person who has recently passed away, there are a number of specific duties that will need to be fulfilled and documents that will need to be filed on behalf of the estate. We will be there beside you throughout the process, working to ensure that all requirements are met and that the entire process goes smoothly.

We are prepared to represent you in any probate-related matter, including:

  • Gathering and distributing estate assets
  • Settling the debts of the estate
  • Handling all court proceedings
  • Resolving contested will disputes and other litigation
