Some specialties include:
Handling the passing of a loved one /Administering an Estate
Upon the passing of a loved one, there are a bunch of things to do. From arranging the funeral to burial plots, it’s a stressful and hectic time. On top of all of that, one needs to go to court to open an estate to access their bank accounts, sell any property they may have, and otherwise take care of their affairs. It can be overwhelming.
That’s where we come in. The Legacy Law Firm takes care of all the paperwork, court filing, and administration needed to handle the estate so you can focus on mourning your loved one.
Medicaid Planning, or – how to pay for assisted living or nursing home
Nursing homes are expensive – Assisted Living facilities start at a cost of $3,000 a month in Michigan for the cheapest place, and skilled nursing care facilities can cost upwards of $8,000-$10,000 a month. Many people can’t afford these costs, and Medicare won’t pay for more than 100 nights in such places. Medicaid will pay for it all, but the rules and requirements to get it are tricky. At The Legacy Law Firm, we specialize in helping people get approved for Medicaid, enabling them to be cared for in the manner they need and deserve.
Arranging a plan for your assets (Estate Planning)
Did you know that if you pass away without a will, the government determines what happens to your money? It’s true. Your hard-earned money and assets will not go to who you want to receive them unless you write a will or a Trust. At The Legacy Law Firm, we review each person’s unique goal’s and craft a personal estate plan to ensure your wishes are carried out and your legacy is preserved.
Probate Litigation / Helping you get the money you deserve
Unfortunately, money proves to be a temptation few can resist. Any time one person is in charge of another’s money, whether it be a Personal Representative, a Trustee, or Guardian, some people can’t resist taking money that doesn’t belong to them. That’s where we come in. We have handled all sorts of situations wherein people were stealing money, getting that person removed from their position and recovering the funds for their rightful owners. Sometimes, we can even handle these cases without you paying anything up front.
