Frequently Asked Questions

What is an Estate Plan?

An estate plan directs what will happen if a person becomes seriously ill or passes away. A comprehensive estate plan can offer a variety of benefits…

  • Probate Avoidance: Keep your family out of probate court, where emotions run high and costly attorneys may be advancing arguments to a busy probate court judge trying to decide matters for your loved ones.
  • Asset Management: Select the right person to manage assets for your loved ones who will benefit from financial management.
  • Asset Protection: Keep your loved one’s inheritance away from creditors, divorcing spouses, lawsuits, and the government.
  • Incapacity Planning: Ensure that your wishes concerning health care treatment and end-of-life decisions are respected. Name the right person to handle your personal financial matters if you become incapacitated.
  • Legacy Planning: You have accumulated a lifetime of meaningful experiences, life lessons, personal beliefs, and core values. Let others benefit from your life experience by passing down your legacy to future family generations.

Client Testimonials

Thank you Brad for the time you spent with us to get this done. You sat down and explained everything step-by-step. You made it possible to understand it all. There were times when you went above and beyond to get things settled. You called the VA to make sure Bill’s benefits stayed intact. And you contacted the township about our property. I would recommend you in a heartbeat!

Brad helped me review my trust and found it needed updating and revising. During the process, he spent time educating me so I am much more aware of the terms and conditions and secure that I have made good choices. I have complete trust in Brad, his work and expertise. He was very accommodating and I know he went out of his way to take good care of me and my family.

Bradley W. Collick, my attorney, is not only knowledgeable, honest, and courteous, but is also a caring individual. Mr. Collick has been extremely helpful and always responsive to any and all of my estate planning questions.

Phyllis, Clawson

I can’t say enough about my recent experience with Attorney Brad Collick. My elderly father needed Power of Attorney documents drawn up. This had always been such a sensitive subject for him, that my brother and I were concerned how the process might go.  Brad’s knowledge and expertise were outstanding; the manner in which he connected with my dad was truly commendable.  We were so appreciative of his kind demeanor, respectful approach and patience – clearly explaining the various documents and checking in regularly to respond to my dad’s questions or concerns. Additionally, Brad was happy to answer questions from my brother and I along the way.  Brad was referred to us and I certainly understand why.  He is a caring professional who I would unequivocally refer to friends and family.

Julie, White Lake
