Michael T. Smith


Michael T. Smith is an attorney who loves helping the people in his community with their legal needs.  Michael practices in the areas of estate planning, probate, guardianship, and the formation of a business (e.g., corporation, limited liability company, etc.).

Michael enjoys helping people plan for their futures.  He helps 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.  Michael helps his 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.

Michael also provides probate assistance to families who have recently lost a loved one.  Our office will help with all of the steps of transferring assets, dealing with debts and creditors, and complying with the procedural requirements of probate.
