)-- Southfield-based Maddin, Hauser, Wartell, Roth & Heller P.C. (www.maddinhauser.com) was selected as the 2013 Corporate Intl Magazine “Estate Administration Law Firm of the Year in Michigan.”
Corporate Intl’s annual awards mark excellence for the world’s leading advisers and financiers in an array of countries and continents globally. For all its awards, Corporate Intl undertakes detailed research in all categories through its editorial and research teams. Following that research, the publication creates a shortlist of firms that are experts in their chosen practices.
Firms that are shortlisted have been researched by Corporate Intl’s own independent team, which considers service range, business type, geographical location, how the business operates and the expertise each team can offer to companies that either trade or may want to trade in their chosen jurisdiction.
Maddin Hauser’s estate planning and probate practice group, led by Robert D. Kaplow, has extensive experience in providing lifetime and post-mortem estate, financial, and tax planning, as well as probate and trust administration services. Members of the practice group are able to provide a full range of services in connection with the accumulation, preservation, and transfer of assets to families and other beneficiaries.

· Achieving financial and life goals
· Providing continuing care for individuals with special needs
