Estate Planning & Real Estate Law Attorney Serving Southfield, MI

Headshot of attorney Stuart Snider

Stuart J. Snider

Attorney at Law

I can help you with wills, trusts, powers of attorney, probate, mortgage, land contract, home purchases, and landlord-tenant issues. I can also help other attorneys write and edit pleadings and legal briefs. I have substantial experience in and out of Detroit area courtrooms, although most of my work happens outside of them. Over the years I’ve worked with clients of all ages and backgrounds. When you hire me as your estate planning, probate, or real estate attorney, you can rely on me to explain the legal process in terms you can understand. I’ll let you know in advance how much everything will likely cost, so you can feel confident about choosing me as your attorney.


"One piece of advice I give to every client is: if you don't ask for what you want, the other person doesn't have a chance to say yes."

Crafting Strategic Solutions for Your Future

It's a common belief that estate planning isn’t necessary until much later in life, but it’s never too early to start planning for the future. I've worked with young couples who have just bought their first home to senior citizens who are considering how to pass down their legacy. If you have assets that you want to protect and pass on, you need an experienced estate planning lawyer in your corner who can guide you in making the best decisions for you and your family. Whether you want to establish a will or trust, designate a probate administrator, or establish a power of attorney, I can help.

From settling your debts to distributing assets and property, there can be a lot of important issues that need to be managed following your death. While that may be unsettling to think about now, you don't want your loved ones to be uncertain of how to resolve these matters while also dealing with the emotional toll of losing a loved one. Having an estate plan in place can remove such burdens from your family and ensure your wishes are carried out. I can give you and your family the reassurance and peace of mind by being there and supporting you through the entire estate planning process.
