We interviewed numerous attorneys to maintain our Revocable Living Trust.
Gary was the most knowledgeable one of the dozen or so attorneys we interviewed.
He also keeps up on new changes in the law and is very easy to work with !!!
He is also very educational in his seminars.
e.g. We learned about Lady Bird Deed through one of his seminars which is handy to keep property in your name (not in a trust where it can be taken by law suit) and yet passed along to children w/o triggering a reassessment of value causing higher property tax.

I endorse this lawyer. Attorney Allen and I practice in the same areas of law and our offices are just a few miles apart. Gary has an outstanding reputation in the metro Detroit legal community. He and I participate in some of the same professional listserves and I have learned a great deal about the law and how to be a better attorney from this gentleman. There are many Michigan lawyers that can say the same thing. I have the utmost respect for Attorney Allen and if he had the time to be more active on Avvo, his rating would be 10.0 in a very short period of time. I am privileged to be able to endorse Gary and his services. He is the lawyer that I want to be like, when I grow up. James Frederick
