In the State of Michigan, probate law can be complicated. It is very helpful to retain a lawyer who specializes in probate law and can help prevents personal liability. If you are an executor, it is your responsibility to make many decisions.

Often much of what a probate lawyer does is help with trust administration as well as making sure death and income taxes are filed smoothly. While any lawyer can be familiar with how the court functions, not every lawyer is so intuitive when it comes to taxes and trusts. When you retain a probate lawyer to represent you, then you can expect to get a certain type of service. Maybe your friend or family lawyer has to get back to their actual job and can’t make a court date. You better believe that doesn’t happen with a probate lawyer.
