Michigan Estate Law

Under Michigan’s recent Estate and Protected Interests Code (EPIC), trustees and personal representatives of decedents’ estates have a duty on behalf of beneficiaries, heirs, devisees, and even some creditors to put the interests of the beneficiary first. BRMM represents both sides of fiduciary conflicts—those concerned about how the fiduciary performance affects their interests, and the fiduciaries who need to defend themselves against allegations of improper conduct.

We have decades of experience arguing cases regarding:

  • Failure to render regular accountings
  • Failure to make prudent investments
  • Favoring one beneficiary over another
  • Commingling of trust or estate assets with the fiduciary’s personal assets
  • Failure to get fair value upon the sale or liquidation of trust or estate assets
  • Waste of assets through negligent management or maintenance
  • Abuse of a power of attorney with respect to financial or medical treatment decisions
  • Overcharging for services
  • Undisclosed conflicts of interest or self-dealing
  • Theft or misappropriation of trust or estate funds
