Our Services: Tax Law We offer our clients over fifty years of experience dealing with the Internal Revenue Service and Michigan Department of Treasury and can assist our clients in all aspects of tax law including: Filing Delinquent Tax Returns Resolving Your Tax Matter Tax Debt Problems Tax Lien & Levy Releases Tax Penalty Removal Innocent Spouse Claims IRS/State Audit Representation Federal/State Tax Litigation Business & Payroll Taxes Business Planning Bankruptcy IRS Seizures Garnishments Filing Annual Income Tax Returns Trust Administration & Probate The administration of a living trust, after death, can be a lengthy and costly process. Therefore, our office provides our clients with the post-death administration of a living trust or administration of a will through the probate process when necessary. Or, alternatively, when our clients wish to handle the administration of a loved-one’s estate themselves, we can offer assistance at whatever level the client desires. Trusts, Wills, Estates, Tax & Business Succession Planning Meeting with potential new clients to assist in the planning of their estate is always a welcomed experience. Each family has different goals and an idea of what they want to happen to their assets upon their death. We listen to our clients and after we have an understanding of the clients’ assets, family situation, personal needs and wishes, we recommend and develop strategies to implement our clients’ goals. We then establish an effective and comprehensive estate plan including living trusts, wills, life insurance trusts, powers of attorney, both general durable and health care, personal and corporate income tax returns, and, where appropriate, gift tax returns and family limited partnerships, family limited liability companies or other entities. We also help our clients transfer their family business from one generation to the next, while minimizing estate and income taxation and intra-family conflict. Business Law We represent our clients in all phases of business law, including the formation, operation, acquisition, sale, merger and/or dissolution of businesses. Real Estate Law We represent clients in all phases of commercial and residential real estate transactions.
