Peace of Mind Made Simple

Safeguarding, You, Your Family, & Assets with Effective & Affordable Estate Planning and Elder Law Counsel.

Welcome to the law office of Andrew Byers. I am an estate planning and elder law attorney serving clients in Troy, Michigan and surrounding communities in Oakland County and the rest of the Metro Detroit area.

Does this Sound Familiar?

  • Overwhelmed about where to start planning for your estate?
  • Frustrated that you never finish a plan you started or now it is out of date?
  • Concerned about nursing home costs?
  • Worried about the State of Michigan being involved in your affairs?

Navigating the complexities of elder law, estate planning, and probate can be daunting, but it doesn't have to be as complicated as it seems. The key is to work with an estate planning and elder law attorney lawyer who knows the ins and outs of the planning process. I have 27 years of practice experience you can use to your benefit. My goal is to help my clients maintain their dignity and independence in the event of incapacity, protect their assets from taxes, legal proceedings, and long-term care costs, and reduce discord amongst the family after your gone.

My Practice Areas:

Medicaid Planning

The cost of long-term care in a nursing home is more than $10,000.00 per month in Metro Detroit. I help my clients legally and effectively protect their savings from the costs of a long nursing home stay with comprehensive Medicaid planning and application services.

Estate Planning for Middle-Aged and Senior Citizens

Whether you're concerned about taking care of your family or planning for or in retirement, I provide personalized estate planning services. My goal is to create a comprehensive plan that reflects your wishes and safeguards your future. Services include Wills, Trusts, Powers of Attorney, and advance healthcare directives.

Guardianship and Conservatorship

When a loved one becomes incapacitated and does not have an estate plan in place, establishing guardianship or conservatorship may be required to have legal authority to protect their well-being and manage their affairs. I help my clients in the legal process of becoming guardian or conservator, making sure the best interests of your loved one are upheld.

Probate of Decedent's Estates

Losing a loved one is difficult enough without the added stress of settling a probate estate. I strive to provide efficient probate services to guide you through the administration of your loved one's estate. My goal is to ease your burden and ensure a smooth transition during this challenging time.

Administration of Trusts

Trust administration requires attention to detail and a thorough understanding of the trustee's fiduciary duties. I represent people who have been appointed trustee of a trust, ensuring that the terms of the trust are executed faithfully and in accordance with the law.

Special Needs Trusts

Planning for the future of a loved one with special needs requires careful consideration and knowledge. I can help you create a special needs trust that preserve your loved one's eligibility for government benefits while providing for their long-term care and financial security.

Why Consult with Me?

  • Experience and Expertise:  With extensive experience in elder law and estate planning in the Metro Detroit area, I am dedicated to providing high-quality legal services with a personal touch.
  • Reliable Help:  I understand the emotional and financial challenges you face. My approach is empathetic and client-focused, making sure you receive the reliable support and guidance you need. I strive to simplify the process where possible so your legal matters can be completed within a reasonable time period.
  • Tailored SolutionsI believe that every client is unique, and so are their needs. I offer customized legal solutions designed to meet your specific circumstances and goals. That being said, my experience tells me that Wills, Trusts, and Medicaid plans should not be overly complicated and it's wise to reduce esoteric legal techniques so that you are not left with a plan that's hard to implement or settle after you're gone.
  • Transparent CommunicationI believe that clear and open communication is important. I keep you informed and involved throughout the legal process, ensuring you understand each step.
