Welcome to Leydorf Law Firm, PLLC

Estate Planning Law Firm Serving Clients Throughout Lansing, Michigan and the Surrounding Area

My goal as a Lansing estate planning lawyer is to be your trusted advisor who helps you make the very best personal, financial, and legal decisions for you and your family throughout your lifetime. I want to help you not just now, but also when you can’t be there so I can help guide your loved ones as efficiently as possible.

You have made a big step toward peace of mind simply by reading this.

At Leydorf Law Firm, PLLC, we’ve built our reputation on working professionally with growing families in the Lansing area and all over the state to help them create the best estate plans. We understand you’re busy raising a family and building a legacy, so we’ve made the process of estate planning as easy and convenient as possible.

Our process begins with a Family Wealth Planning Session. Before the Session you will complete homework that will have you feeling more organized and put together than you have in a long time. Maybe ever.

Many benefits come with estate planning. The primary reason to have a detailed plan is to protect the beneficiaries of your estate in the event of your death. Without one, it will be up to the courts to decide who gets your assets, a process that can be very costly, time-consuming, and even ugly at times. An estate plan also helps ensure your young children are cared for in a manner that you approve in the event of the unthinkable. If you have small children, you owe it to yourself to create a plan on how they will be taken care of. You should consider setting up a trust to hold your assets and name their guardians to secure their future should both parents die before the children turn 18.

Benefits of Estate Plans

Estate plans also allow individuals to transfer assets to their beneficiaries with the smallest possible estate transfer tax burden. With the help of an estate planning attorney in Lansing, you can considerably reduce federal taxes and state inheritance and estate taxes through your plan. Without an estate plan, the amount your beneficiaries may owe the Internal Revenue Service could be a burden.

Nick has been helping me with my mother's estate since she passed over 2 years ago. He has been a godsend! Always easily flexible and responds very quickly if something urgent came up. He was very helpful with understanding the processes of everything we were doing. Then after almost 2 & 1/2 years, his final invoice was wayyy cheaper than I expected (not really knowing the going rate for estate work). This was a very trying time in my family's life and Nick made it so much easier! Thank you Nick!
