Law 6

SOLUTION FOCUSED LEGAL THINKING

Bradley Vauter & Associates, P.C., is a small private firm with an enormous public spirit. We focus in these areas of law: elder law, probate court matters (estates, guardians conservators), estate planning including trusts and special needs trusts, property law, small business and non-profit law, and law important to members of the LGBT community.

Some good news?

The Supreme Court decided in June of 2020
https://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/19pdf/17-1618_hfci.pdf that Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which has long prohibited workplace discrimination on the basis of sex, also applies to gay and lesbian and transgender people facing workplace discrimination. And in June of 2015 the Supreme Court overturned the rather tortured DeBoer v Snyder decision from the 6th Circuit from the year previous in the Obergefell v Hodges case. Gay marriage is legal and recognized throughout the USA. https://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/14pdf/14-556_3204.pdf

“When I needed him, Brad was there. . . Every time. . . He has much patience, perseverance, is not pushy, but yet with his expertise, knowledge and research, knows how to write or say what is needed to get results! He went out of his way to get me out of a big bind I was put in. Thank you :- )” Michael Hicks Hicks Agency (Insurance) 428 W. Lenawee St. Lansing MI

“Brad was extremely thorough when explaining, and also open-minded to my suggestions and concerns.  He seems to understand life thru many perspectives; I believe we got along great considering the age gap between us.  It could be education, it could be his ability to relate”
