Bruce Law Firm – Monroe Probate Lawyer Serving Monroe County and Southeast Michigan



Bruce Law Firm can help you with your probate and estate administration needs.

Probate is the legal process by which the Courts administer a will or estate of someone that has passed away. It is a Court process by which an individual petitions the Court to be appointed the “personal representative” of the decedents estate.  This person is responsible for complying with the requirements of the law to administer the estate. A probate lawyer can prepare all the necessary paperwork and get the personal representative appointed.  Often an experienced probate attorney can avoid the need to even appear in Court to be appointed.  

Once appointed there are several requirements and deadlines that the personal representative must comply.  An experienced probate attorney can guide you through this process.  There are potential legal consequences for personal representatives that fail to comply with the terms of their appointment as personal representative. 

Bruce Law handles numerous probate cases in Monroe and Wayne County each year.  We offer free consultations where we can sit down and discuss what is needed to open the probate case and how to best proceed.  We have preferred vendors that we can recommend to handle many of the responsibilities of being the personal representative.  


Whether you are in need of an attorney in the Monroe Michigan or Downriver Michigan areas our law firm is available to meet and consult with you at your convenience.
