Please share in our excitement as we welcome Amy Peterman to The Probate Pro team! Amy started sharing her expertise with us as an official Probate Pro on Monday, April 24, and will primarily focus her practice on probate litigation matters and appeals.

Amy joins us after a seasoned career of more than 25 years practicing in the legal community and serving in various government positions. For the past eight years, Amy has worked to hone her probate skills, both in private practice and as a Judicial Staff Attorney for the Honorable Daniel A. O’Brien at the Oakland County Probate Court. Prior to that, Amy served as Assistant Majority Counsel for the Michigan Senate in 2006.

Amy is a member of the State Bar of Michigan, including the Probate and Estate Planning section and the Elder Law section, as well as the Oakland County Bar Association. Amy has also been featured in Laches publication as “Attorney of the Month.”

After earning her B.A. from the University of Michigan, Amy went on to complete her M.B.A. from Madonna University before finishing her J.D. at Wayne State University Law School.

Outside of the office, you can spot Amy gardening, working out, or spending time with her two children when they are in town. Amy’s daughter, Amanda, is a special education teacher in New York City and her son, Jack, works in private equity in San Francisco. Amy is also mom to her beloved dog, Sasha, who she describes as “beautiful, wild, and the love of my life.” Among Amanda, Jack, and Sasha, one is Amy’s favorite, but she won’t say who. :)

And if you enjoy “The Apprentice,” you will both have a lot in common. Amy once made it to the third round of tryouts back when Martha Stewart was the host.

As you know, our team of compassionate attorneys quickly and efficiently serve all of Michigan’s probate needs at cost-effective prices. Already in line with our own core values, we are grateful to have Amy contributing her experience and talent.
