Nationally Recognized

We are pleased to announce the release of our latest book, Administering the Michigan Special Needs Trust: A Guide for Trustees and Those Who Advise Them.
The great SNT trustee is a solid financial manager, accountant, record keeper, legal counselor, public benefits advisor, social worker, housing coordinator, civil rights advocate, guardian, and life coach.

The world of public benefits for the disabled is a complex one that requires careful study. It is very easy to mess up these rules and using common sense will generally lead to a loss of public benefits and potential liability for an SNT trustee. The book is written in question and answer format to cover all aspects of administering a special needs trust. In addition, there are multiple checklists, sample forms, and summaries included that will allow a trustee to confidently manage any type of special needs trust.

“Exceptional law firm with extraordinary people!! Unbelievably positive experience here. As a woman using a wheelchair, I have faced many barriers in my life, and so much related to my life planning has been uncertain and overwhelming. I realized that I couldn’t do it alone. That’s when I reached out to Michele Fuller.

She helped me understand what my options were as I started my career and she helped me create a plan that not only created possibilities for me, but also truly made me feel empowered and excited about my future. I went from feeling overwhelmed with fear and confusion to feeling like I could do anything and not be held back. Through my collaboration with Michele, she was unfailingly kind, patient and understanding.

She was truly someone amazing to work with and I would 100% recommend her to anyone needing legal counsel on special needs planning, in addition to elder law, settlement planning, concerns related to Medicaid or Medicare, or other needs. I want to thank everyone at the Michigan Law Center who has helped me along the way!!”

Lauren Presutti

“Working with the folks at the Michigan law center was definitely the right decision for my mother’s estate planning needs. Very knowledgeable, up to date with changing laws & trends & they are very focused on client needs. Questions were always answered clearly and promptly, & everything was prepared exactly as requested.

Michelle’s team certainly deserves a pat on the back, especially Amy & Loren.
MLC is definitely the place to go for your estate planning, elder & dependent care legal needs.”

-Nicholas Billardello

“I attended a seminar in which Michele gave a very informative presentation. I was impressed with her knowledge of elder law and estate planning.

I had been searching for a long time to have my estate documents updated but was unimpressed with the attorneys that I had spoken with until I met Michele. I contracted with her firm to update my estate documents and to restate my trust. I found Michele and her employees Amy and Lizzie to be very helpful and a good source for financial and legal advice. I look forward to using them as a contact for advice for many year to come.”

-David Clor

My name is Jon Frank, and like Michele Fuller, I am a lawyer in Macomb Co. However, sometimes, even us lawyers need some occasional guidance on complex and unusual probate issues. When that happens, I call Michele, and she is always good enough to answer, and to answer accurately & graciously.

Michele is who other probate lawyers (like me) go to for advice. She is exceptional, and professional. A “lawyer’s lawyer”. Top notch.

Jon Frank

“Through our several years of them managing my daughters special needs trust they have been Wonderful. They are always quick to respond to any questions or requests we have. They even sent an attorney to my daughters guardianship hearing with as little as a couple day’s notice. We are very pleased with the service they provide and highly recommend them to anyone in need.”

Kathy Rewitzer

“Michele Fuller is among the best attorneys I’ve worked with. She is kind, responsive, and an expert in the area of planning for persons with special needs. She is my “go to” attorney for any legal questions relating to the areas of special needs planning, trust and estates, and social services planning.”
