Mallory A. Kallabat
Mallory A. Kallabat provides personal legal services to individual and corporate clients in the areas of estate planning, tax and succession planning, as well as probate and trust administration.
Mallory works with individuals, families, and business owners in connection with wealth preservation and transfers, charitable giving, and business succession planning.
She guides individuals and families through the complexities of incapacity and estate planning, ensuring each client has a plan for the present and future management of personal and financial affairs. She also helps fiduciaries and beneficiaries navigate through the sometimes-overwhelming trust and estate administration processes.
While her goal is to avoid the need for probate administration, Mallory understands that sometimes probate court proceedings are inevitable. Clients often seek Mallory’s guidance to obtain guardianship or conservatorship of incapacitated family members. She also represents beneficiaries, fiduciaries, and family members in probate disputes such as will and trust contests, including those involving lack of testamentary capacity and undue influence, and breach of fiduciary duty claims. In doing so, Mallory’s primary goal is to reach a favorable resolution for her clients while counseling them through the emotional process of probate litigation.
In addition to estate planning and probate matters, Mallory also assists entities and individuals with their business planning needs. Developing a tax or succession plan is within the matters on which she can assist.
Additionally, Mallory often collaborates with corporate and individual clients to apply for and obtain marijuana facility licenses with the various municipalities as well as the Michigan Marijuana Regulatory Agency.
