Areas We Serve

Serving Clients Throughout Oakland County

Oakland County is located in Michigan and is a part of the Detroit Metropolitan Area, although Detroit is technically located in neighboring Wayne County. One feature that sets Oakland County apart from other Michigan counties is the fact that it is among the ten highest income counties in the United States with a population exceeding one million people. It doesn't matter if you live in Ferndale or Hazel Park, Troy, Southfield, Bloomfield or Farmington Hills, everyone should consider estate planning regardless of how wealthy or how old they are.

While Oakland County has endured the recent economic hardships suffered by General Motors, Ford, and Chrysler, its economy is less reliant on manufacturing jobs than neighboring counties. Still, all three automotive employers have a significant presence in Oakland County. Whether you're a factory worker on the floor, or a white collar worker, it's important to be in control of your hard-earned assets instead of the government. In a day and age when Social Security is unpredictable and inadequate and when corporate collapses threaten private pension plans, the only person who can plan for your retirement and pass down an inheritance is you. Without thoughtful planning and an ongoing commitment on your part, it's impossible to effectively plan for the future and protect the ones you love most.

Our firm is located at 3707 West Maple Road, Bloomfield Hills, Michigan 48301, and we are proud to serve clients in Bloomfield Hills and all throughout Oakland and Macomb counties.
