The passing of someone you care about is undoubtedly emotionally challenging and dealing with the intricacies associated with their estate is often a demanding endeavor. There are numerous legal procedures involved with the administration and division of the property of an estate.

With over 25 years of experience handling probate in every county in Michigan, we understand how to hasten the process of estate administration with a focus on steering those faced with fiduciary responsibilities through this process smoothly and successfully.



Estates, wills and trusts may be contested for various reasons.  It is vital to obtain skilled legal help and advice to secure your inheritance and make certain that you get what you are lawfully entitled to.

We recognize the emotional and financial challenges associated with estate litigation. Our top priority is to lead parties to a sensible and amicable resolution and thereby averting complications, expense and unnecessary conflict as well as zealously litigating on the part of our clients when required.



Aho & Potti litigators have extensive experience across a broad spectrum of litigation matters, including agency; business and partnership disputes; contract matters; construction; creditor’s rights and debtor’s protection; family disputes; real estate; and will contests and probate.

Our goal is to ensure that the most competent, "hands-on" and cost effective approach is undertaken on behalf of each client, whether in the prosecution or defense of a litigated matter.

Estate planning trusts

Our firm has represented clients concerning a full spectrum of trust and estate issues in Michigan including Estate Settlement and Administration, Probate and Intestate Administration proceedings, Will contests, Kinship matters, Fiduciary Accountings, Trusts, and Estate taxes.

To ensure that your will and all of your other estate and advance planning documents will realize your vision of the future, we take the time necessary to interview you and gain a thorough understanding of all the relevant details to create an estate plan that protects you and your loved ones.


The selling or buying of commercial or residential property ought to be carefully managed by highly qualified legal counsel. Real estate contracts need to be analyzed very carefully and mortgage documents reviewed for accuracy to help avert potential complications, damages and legal issues.

We have over two decades of experience in real estate development transactions, ranging from the acquisition and financing of the land, to the construction work and funding required to implement the project, and finally to the leasing, operation and permanent financing of the development. 


We offer a broad array of corporate services, ranging from establishing ventures to complete capital financings and mergers and acquisitions. Clients are similarly varied, and include privatly held entities (including family owned businesses), international companies, and not-for-profit corporations. 


The administration of trusts can be extremely complex. Because trust administration can often overlap with tax laws and tax accounting rules, it is imperative to enlist the help of a skilled attorney. Our intimate knowledge of Michigan's laws serves as immeasurable benefit to our clients. We can help you navigate the complex process of trust administration and address any concerns that you may have.



Elder Law involves planning for the complex health care, long-term care, and other issues facing elderly and disabled individuals and their families. At Aho & Potti, we provide comprehensive legal services to help clients with issues that arise later in life. We advise clients on issues such as long-term care planning, qualification for government benefit programs through Medicaid and the Vetran's Administration, and special needs' trusts for the care of a disabled child.

We sort through all the details and take the time to explain your options clearly to help you make a choice that's right for your particular situation.


From the contracts necessary to begin a new business venture to trial representation through the storm of litigation, our firm provides its clients, large and small, with solutions to their business issues, simple and complex.  We assist clients in successfully planning, negotiating and structuring of a variety of business needs from the formation of corporations, and limited liability companies, to determining which form of business to utilize, the dissolution and winding up corporate and limited liability companies in both the profit and non-profit sectors and more.


We must all obey the great law of change. It is the most powerful law of nature.
— Edmund Burke
