Estate Planning Clinic
Estate Planning Assistance for Oakland County Seniors
The Estate Planning Clinic is a collaboration between Lakeshore Legal Aid and Thomas M. Cooley Law School. We are a teaching clinic staffed by law students. The students are supervised by attorneys and are authorized to practice law with supervision. They can interview and counsel clients, draft wills, durable powers of attorney and powers of attorney for health care at no charge to the client.
The Estate Planning Clinic is currently accepting applicants from Oakland County residents age 60 and over. If you are a single person, your estate value must not exceed $150,000, not including your primary residence. If you are married, your combined estate value must not exceed $250,000, not including your primary residence.
The Estate Planning Clinic will distribute questionnaires to determine eligibility and priority in the clinic. If chosen to participate, the client will meet with the student interns to discuss their assets and determine their estate plan. At the conclusion of the representation, the client will have a proper estate plan that meets their individual needs.
If you are interested in participating, please fill out the questionnaire below.
EPC provides a significant resource in terms of legal services to persons who might not be able to afford an attorney and an opportunity for students to participate in the legal system.
