Estate Planning for Farmers in Kalamazoo and Grand Rapids

Farming is more than a profession or a career. It is a way of life — rooted in work ethic and respect for the land — that is passed on through the generations. When the time comes to consider the future, farmers and their families face many unique estate planning challenges. With so much at stake, it is critical to have experienced legal counsel from attorneys who appreciate these challenges and know what it takes to achieve results.

At Willis Law, we focus our attention on providing farmers and their families detailed estate planning and succession planning services. Our Kalamazoo estate planning attorneys take the time to fully assess and understand the unique needs of farmers and compose a comprehensive asset protection strategy.

Succession Planning for Farmers

Farming, at its core, is a business. One key to running a successful business is establishing a strong succession plan for when it becomes necessary to transfer control. Doing so is the best way to preserve the value of a farm and protect the land. At Willis Law, we work hard to ensure farmers and their families — those who have put their blood, sweat and tears into their farm's success — may continue to prosper well into the future. Please arrange a consultation today to discuss your business and your goals with an experienced farm succession planning lawyer today. We are ready to answer any initial questions you might have and are prepared to address all of the potential challenges you might face.
