Estate Planning Attorneys
Tailored Plans to Meet Individual Needs
Everyone’s estate planning needs are different. An attorney should have a definite plan for protecting your estate from probate, taxes, any form of government intrusion, creditors, irresponsible heirs, and a host of other invaders. Clients with small and large estates alike must have a plan that protects them from excessive taxation to include strategies for minimizing tax exposure as much as possible for themselves and their heirs. For some, designating a guardian for a minor child is a priority. For others, future medical treatment is a primary concern. No matter what your specific situation is, you need an experienced lawyer to help you build an effective estate plan to protect your family and your interests.
At the law office of Sean Patrick Cox, Attorney & Counselor at Law, based in Grand Rapids, Michigan, we create personalized estate plans designed to meet each client’s unique circumstances.

Why Build an Estate Plan?
Estate planning is essential for a number of reasons. Estate planning:
- Allows the transfer of assets without the expense of probate
- Protects your assets from government intrusion and excessive taxation
- Allows you to provide for future medical treatment should you become unable to communicate your desires
- Keeps your affairs private
Everyone needs a will, particularly if children are involved. However, in most cases you will require more detailed estate planning. To discuss your specific situation and concerns, call our office.
