Probate and Estate Administration

Farmington Hills Probate Attorney

As a public administrator for Oakland County, Michigan, our principal attorney, Barry Seifman has particular experience to advise clients with probate and estate administration legal questions. The clients of our Farmington Hills law office have come to rely on us to ensure the protection of their assets and property.

Estate Planning

Our probate lawyer can assist clients with their probate issues in a number of areas, including the following:

  • Personal representative - commonly referred to as the executor of the will. If a personal representative was or was not named in the will of a deceased party, our estate administration attorney will provide assistance in settling the estate.

  • Conservatorships - our office will assist clients in managing their current assets, as well as avoiding probate and the associated costs and taxes.

  • Guardianships - we can arrange and establish the legal relationship for minor children and adults.

Probate Administration

If you have been designated as the executor or administrator of an estate, you may be asked to perform a variety of duties, including the preparation of an inventory of the assets of the estate, valuation of assets (if necessary), and the payment of debts and obligations of the estate (including taxes). You may also become involved in any legal challenges to the validity of the will or the distribution of property under the will. We provide proficient, cost-effective estate administration services for our clients.

Because the probate process is complex, you want an experienced probate administration attorney. Our principal attorney, Barry Seifman, has extensive experience serving as a state-appointed administrator in Oakland County.
