“When my husband and I finally got around to estate planning, we could not have found a better legal resource to guide us through the process. Matt was very knowledgeable and presented us with information and guidance to help us make the decisions that resulted in setting up a trust that met our current and future needs. I am confident that we have a plan that will take care of us, as well as our children, now and in the future.” - Client Review

Matthew focuses his practice primarily in the areas of Estate Planning, Probate Administration, and Elder Law. After graduating from the Eli Broad College of Business and Detroit Mercy School of Law, Matthew opened his own practice. In 2017, he joined up with attorneys Sherman Abdo and Fran-Marie Silveri to offer his clients a wider array of legal services.

As many of us who are fortunate enough to have grandparents live a long and prosperous life, Matthew saw some of the challenges his grandparents faced as they began to age. These moments helped mold him into the attorney he strives to be for his clients who are either planning for life events at an early age or going through challenges at a later stage in life. In the fields of Estate Planning and Elder Law, Matthew works incessantly with his clients, ensuring that they plan for their long-term care needs and address how they want their estate to be administered when they pass. Matthew believes each client has their own unique set of circumstances and family dynamics. He also understands that every client wants to ease the burdens that their incapacity or deaths may put on their families. Matthew identifies issues and provides his clients with confidence and peace of mind.

Estate Planning Ease
My wife and I worked with Matt to set up our Estate/Trust. Leading up to the meeting, Matt provided us some easy to complete paperwork that would help with questions and answers regarding various people that are to be named in our Trust. At the meeting Matt was both professional and friendly. He broke things down in an easy to digest manor. He took the time to listen to our questions and respond with clear, concise answers. Due to similar life situations, Matt was able to share how he has approached this on his end to help with the decision making. At our follow-up meeting. Matt once again laid everything out that was needed. We were able to quickly get through all of the materials and signature. He spelled out everything that we needed to do on our end to ensure the Trust was properly set-up via our personal accounts. It was a pleasure to work with Matt on this and looking forward to continuing the relationship with him and his firm as needed moving forward.

Great customer service and fast work!
Matthew did a great job interacting with my mother as he helped her set up a ladybird deed. He took the time to talk with her and listen to her. She was very pleased with him. And the turnaround time on the work was excellent!

Highly recommend! Excellent lawyer
We worked with Matthew to plan our estate. He was really amazing. He explained everything to us in great detail. He was extremely kind and understanding, as our small kids had to come to the office with us and, of course, that never goes quite like you hope it will. He is extremely knowledgeable and his office manager did a wonderful job with last minute changes to the documents. We are very grateful for their expertise and assistance. It's wonderful peace of mind having our estate planning completed and knowing we have a great lawyer to turn to should the need arise.

We contacted Matt to set up our Will, Estate, and Trust to protect our assets and decrease any taxes our children would owe on our estate upon our passing. Matt was very helpful in directing us to the best plan for us, and what we needed to do on our own to protect our bank accounts, etc. We are extremely pleased with the work Matt did, and the personal attention he gave to our needs at our age. Definitely would recommend Matt La Grasso to set up your Estate!

We had Matt do our total estate planning. He explained everything to us so that we understand each document and why we needed it. We felt that in any situation we would be covered. We could not be any happier with Matts services, he did an outstanding job!

Revocable Living Trust preparation
Matt was hired to prepare our revocable living trust. He is extremely thorough and professional explaining the process and answering all of our questions. I was impressed with his knowledge and he clearly articulated each alternative during the preparation. His confidence, and genuine personal attention made my wife and I feel comfortable with the process. The closing was scheduled on time and efficient, with all the correct paperwork and representatives present. All the beneficiary updates necessary to be completed afterwards were clearly explained to us. Overall very satisfied with the experience.

Hi contacted Matt LaGrasso regarding a legal matter where I was served a subpoena to pay for a service that I was already addressing. However, once Matt had all the information, he quickly engaged, investigated the matter and made sure it was resolved fairly and justly. As a result, the judgment that was placed against me was resolved and the matter has been justly resolved. I would definitely hire Matt La Grasso again.

Estate Planning Done Right
My wife and I had several attorneys we were considering to do our estate plan, but none of them came across as knowledgeable or as attentive to our concerns as Matt and his partners. They took time to answer our questions, addressed potential problems specific to our situation, and personally handled our plan (unlike other firms where we never saw the actual attorney). I would highly recommend Matt for any and all legal work you need. Outstanding experience.

Excellent Job!
Through the debt collection process, Matthew did a great job keeping me up to date on the file. In addition, my case never made it to court and was collected in full.
