Skilled Estate Planning Lawyers in West Bloomfield, Michigan

Peace of Mind at an Affordable Price

Most people lack peace of mind regarding estate planning on account of uncertainty and fear. For example, they are concerned about how they will survive a medical crisis. On the other hand they may be worried about how they can conserve their resources. However, most importantly, they are worried about how they can provide for and protect their loved ones.

As a West Bloomfield Estate Planning Attorney for over thirty five years, my clients are ordinary families just like yours. I only charge reasonable flat fees. In short, there is never an hourly charge and there are never any surprises.

In fact, in my office, you will take part in a Professional Estate Planning Process. First, we will schedule an appointment where we will discuss your family situation in detail. Next, I will create a customized plan for your family for a reasonable flat fee. The estate plan will include a Trust, if necessary, a Will appropriate for your plan, Financial Powers of Attorney, Health Care Powers of Attorney, Patient Advocate Designations, Powers of Attorney for Children, if necessary, HIPPA Authorization and Waiver, Burial Instructions, a Deed if necessary, and funding instructions.


Hire a West Bloomfield estate planning attorney who will explain things to you and, most importantly, solve your problems for a reasonable price. Douglas Kuthy will do just that.

Estate Planning attorneys will tell you that the failure To Do Estate Planning Is The Equivalent Of Inviting Modern Grave Robbers To Steal TIME, MONEY, PRIVACY, CHOICE AND PEACE From Your Family. That is to say failure to plan results in Probate or Conservatorship and Guardianship. And these legal procedures rob you of TIME because they drag on for years.

In addition, these modern grave robbers steal your MONEY because they require endless fees. For example, first there are filing fees, next there are bonds, third there are personal representative fees. Finally, there are attorneys fees. And there can be additional lawsuits within these legal processes over who will be the personal representative or the guardian and conservator. Moreover, there can be will contests and claim contests and competency disputes. Because of all of this the average cost of probate is ten percent of the value of the estate. In fact, these fees can be much higher. Consequently, I personally have seen costs of these proceedings exceed fifty thousand dollars. To conclude, because the cost of estate planning is modest, it is the best insurance you can have against these problems.

Further, without an estate plan CHOICE is stolen because the law will determine first, who gets what, and second who will handle your affairs.

Finally, your family’s PRIVACY is stolen because these proceedings are public. So any fraud can file a baseless claim as a creditor. In addition, any nosey neighbor can see what is being given to whom.

In conclusion, failure to plan properly will cause your family members additional pain above and beyond their grief over your loss.

Planning your estate properly will result in removing your anxiety and your fear. Moreover, when you are done you will be educated and have peace of mind because you will have a certainty of outcome.
