Estate planning is not a one-size-fits-all proposition. Every individual and every family faces unique circumstances regarding wills and trusts. For some people, a simple will is enough to properly address their needs; others will require a more comprehensive strategy. At my law firm, McCleary & Associates, P.C., I'll sit down with you to help you decide the strategy that is best for you. I've been helping people in Grand Blanc, Flint and all over Genesee County for more than 25 years with their life planning as a lawyer. I've handled countless estate planning cases in Michigan over the years, and I look forward to sharing my experience with you.
