In an effort to protect the health of our clients, employees, and communities from potential impacts of COVID-19, we are holding virtual meetings (via telephone) as an alternative to traditional face-to-face meetings. The quarantine does not need to stop you from getting the legal help you need and we are still available to help! Feel free to reach out for a Free Virtual Consultation.

In order to express our gratitude and appreciation to all of the healthcare workers and first responders helping our communities, we want to extend a discount to each of them and their families on any estate planning services to help them protect and care for their own loved ones.

Over 90 Years of Combined Experience Credentials, Compassion and Commitment Make Us the Clear Choice

Helping Oakland County & Surrounding Areas Settle Fiduciary Disputes

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

Trust BRMM to Uphold Clients’ Interests

Our firm’s experience investigating and presenting evidence on such issues create a significant advantage for our clients. Contact us today to learn more about the scope of our experience with the litigation of fiduciary duty issues in the probate courts of Michigan.
