If you spend even a few minutes online, or flipping through the yellow pages, you’ll quickly realize that there is no shortage of lawyers in Southeast Michigan. So why should you choose us to craft your family’s estate plan? Please consider the following:
We believe that estate planning should not be an afterthought for you or your lawyer. Your family deserves a plan created by an attorney who focuses on this area of the law. Even if you choose not to work with us, we hope you will work with an attorney who focuses on elder law, Medicaid, estate planning, and closely related practice areas.
Estate planning and elder law often involve discussions about sensitive and emotional topics. It is much easier, and more productive, to have discussions like these with attorneys who are naturally empathetic and passionate about their work. Our attorneys derive a great deal of professional and personal satisfaction from working closely with clients. We will devote the time and energy to ask the right questions, clearly explain your planning options, and walk you through the entire process—all while making you feel like family.
The biggest complaint people have about lawyers is that they never return phone calls and emails. Our attorneys will respond to your questions quickly and keep you “in the loop” during the planning process.
We hold complimentary workshops throughout the year, provide clients with quarterly estate planning and elder law newsletters, and discuss the latest legal trends in our blog. The more you know about your plan, the more confident you’ll be that it will accomplish your goals—which in turn will lead to greater peace of mind.
Some attorneys, particularly those who do not primarily practice estate planning, take what we call a “cookie cutter” approach to planning. That is, every plan is basically the same, a collection of standard legal documents with little thought given to the client’s unique situation and goals. Our plans are comprehensive. Every element of your plan will work together to create an effective whole.

Serving Families Through Private & Convenient Zoom Meetings
I first met Mike Rutkowski when my mom needed to update her estate plan, Will and establish a “Living Trust”. In the year that followed, Mike provided us with continuous support through challenges in Probate Court by mom’s family and subsequent revisions to mom’s estate plan and Will. Since mom’s passing, Mike has continued to give me great support as the Trustee of her estate. Recently, I chose Mike’s firm to set up my own Will and Trust. Rutkowski Law Firm and its staff have been a constant support to me at every step of the process. I would recommend Rutkowski Law Firm to any and every one for issues related to Wills, Trusts, Probate, etc. Definitely a reputable firm to trust with your life planning. I give my highest recommendation to this firm for their honesty, integrity and reliability.
After procrastinating for many years I finally decided to get my will and trust done. I expected it to be a lengthy and cumbersome process but I was pleasantly surprised! I chose Rutkowski Law Firm because I saw an ad in the local paper and they were convenient to where I lived. What I got was “white glove” treatment, a very professional and friendly staff, and most importantly, immediate response to all my questions and concerns. I worked with Michael Rutkowski and Trisha Harris—a great team! Without hesitation I would recommend them to anyone looking to get their “affairs in order”.
