Probate court is more than the place where wills are admitted and estates are administered. Our probate practice includes estate matters but we also handle guardianships, conservatorships, abuse and neglect cases, and juvenile matters.
Vulnerable adults that suffer from intellectual or physical disabilities frequently require assistance in making day-to-day decisions regarding their health or finances. Sadly, these individuals also need strong advocates to protect them from abuse.
Our attorneys have extensive experience advocating for vulnerable adults and individuals, both in and outside of the courtroom. Our probate practice group is headed up by attorneys David Jaunese and Lindsey Barkow. Dave Jaunese served as the Newaygo County Guardian for 19 years and continues to serve as guardian to several vulnerable adults. Lindsey Barkow worked as a social worker prior to attending law school and has focused her practice on guardian and conservatorships and abuse and neglect litigation.
Our attorneys’ experience and expertise in probate court is invaluable for serving our clients’ probate needs.
