Probate Court Practice

In Michigan, probate courts have jurisdiction over many types of cases. Our Probate Court Practice Team at Parmenter Law handles probate court matters throughout West Michigan with the utmost compassion for the client’s situation, using our experience and knowledge of the law to aggressively advocate for the client.

Scope of Our Probate Court Services

Our Probate Court Practice Team handles trust and estate administration matters in probate court. We also counsel and represent clients on other probate court matters, including:

  • Guardianship
  • Conservatorship
  • Interpretation of wills and trusts
  • Modification of wills and trusts
  • Special Needs Trusts
  • General probate of estates

Parmenter Law's probate court practice covers the full gamut of Michigan probate court matters. Clients include:

  • Individuals
  • Personal representatives and executors
  • Trustees
  • Guardians
  • Conservators
  • Beneficiaries of wills and trusts

Many of our probate court matters naturally arise from our other practices, including elder law and estate planning, as well as trust and estate administration. Throughout every practice at Parmenter Law, we help clients address issues taking into account the larger, overall context, rather than dealing with a single question or matter at a time. Our unique approach and collegial working atmosphere benefit our clients and their families over the longer term, regardless of what particular issue brings them to the firm. That is especially true in our probate court, estate, and trust practices, all of which involve personal and family matters that touch deeply on the lives of our clients and their families.
