Attorney Nick Leydorf is the founder of The Leydorf Law Firm, PLLC. Nick was born and raised in Bannister, Michigan--a town of fewer than 200 people. He attended Ovid-Elsie High School, where he was a three-sport athlete. He graduated in the Top 10 in his class.
Nick earned a scholarship to Michigan State University, where he played rugby. He graduated from Michigan State in 2002, ranked in the Top 1% of his class. Having always been passionate about the law and becoming a lawyer, Nick entered law school at the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Florida. He later transferred to The Catholic University of America - Columbus School of Law in Washington, DC. He received his JD degree in 2005, graduating with High Honor.
After working with several small firms, with the encouragement of his family as well as former clients, Nick started his own practice. Since that time, The Leydorf Law Firm, PLLC has achieved excellent results for clients throughout Michigan. Nick is not afraid to travel across Michigan to assist others; to date he has represented clients in over 50 Michigan counties.
As people grow older, they may want to think about how they would want their property to be distributed upon their death. A will or a trust can accomplish this goal. Sometimes a trust may make more sense than a will because it avoids the need for probate, a process that can be time-consuming and costly. If you do not devise an estate plan, your assets will be distributed according to default intestacy laws, which may not result in the arrangement that you would prefer. In addition to creating a will or trust, a Michigan resident may want to craft a power of attorney to give someone whom they trust the authority to handle financial or health care decisions if they are incapacitated.
