Michael Smith

Estate Planning and Small Business Attorney

My name is Michael Smith and I am an attorney who loves helping the people in his community with their legal needs.  I can provide assistance in the areas of Estate Planning, Probate, Guardianship, or Formation of a Business (e.g., Corporation, Limited Liability Company, etc.)  

I enjoy helping people plan for their futures.  I help individuals and couples who want to review or update an existing estate plan, as well as those who want to prepare an estate plan for the first time.

Estate planning is more than just a collection of documents.  I help my clients focus on the big picture of the people who are significant to them, and those that will assist them, as well as identify the people, organizations, or charities that they want to support as part of their planning.  

I guide you along the estate planning process, making recommendations and serving as a sounding board for your goals and objectives.  Ultimately, my job is to make sure that you understand your options to protect yourself and loved ones from incapacity, and develop a plan that is going to meet your wishes.
