Karen’s estate plans are affordable, fixed fee plans that are in compliance with Michigan and Federal estate laws (a danger in using internet do-it-yourself forms). She works with each client to prepare a custom estate plan that meets the client’s goals, avoids probate and minimizes estate taxes. She educates clients on Wills, Trusts, Powers of Attorney, Ladybird deeds, and how to choose executors and other agents. Karen gives her clients the information needed to fund their trusts and protect their assets. After loved ones have passed, Karen assists families in administering estates.

Basic Facts About Estate Planning
To adequately protect you and your family in the event of disability or death, it is important to have a well thought out and comprehensive plan. There are four documents in a basic estate plan: Last Will and Testament, Revocable Living Trust, Durable Power of Attorney and Patient Advocate Designation. However, your individual needs may require more or less planning, or that other documents be prepared in addition to these basic documents.

“Karen, we really, really appreciate you! The better the planning we do, the luckier we have been, which is why I brought Aunt Betty to you 14 years ago, and we have sought your advice throughout. She is at peace knowing she doesn't need to worry about managing estate-related choices in her final days.“
“Thanks for taking such good care of us and making it easy to ask questions. I appreciate not being made to feel stupid for asking questions. It was a lovely gift at a tough time.“
