DETROIT, Mich. (PRWEB) November 20, 2013
Dickinson Wright PLLC is pleased to announce that Attorney Thomas Isaacs has been appointed as an Oakland County Public Administrator by Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette.
The County Public Administrator has oversight responsibilities in deceased estate probate matters where there are no heirs or unknown heirs and no will. State law defines who is considered an heir. If a person dies and has no living relatives and leaves no will, then the County Public Administrator is appointed by the county probate judge to be the personal representative of the estate. The County Public Administrator ensures all bills are paid and the remaining estate assets are sent to the State of Michigan. The County Public Administrator acts as a fiduciary to ensure unclaimed estate assets properly go to the State Treasurer on behalf of the people of the State of Michigan.
Mr. Isaacs is an Associate in the firm’s Detroit office. He focuses his practice on litigation including commercial & business litigation, automotive litigation, and product liability and personal injury. He has experience representing a diverse lineup of corporations in a variety of commercial litigation cases, including contractual, antitrust, collections and business tort matters. He is routinely responsible for all phases of litigation in commercial cases, including discovery, motion practice, expert witness retention and preparation, and overall case management. He was recognized by Michigan Super Lawyers as a “Rising Star” in Business Litigation. Mr. Isaacs received his B.A. from Oakland University and his J.D. from Wayne State University Law School.
