Douglas Boodt

A Kalamazoo native and Army veteran, I received my law degree from DePaul University College of Law in Chicago. I have been practicing law since 1999. Prior to attending law school, I built and managed a small business for ten years.

I realize that planning your estate can be an intimidating process. I also know that making these decisions can be some of the most important you will ever make. Who should I name as the personal representative of my estate? Do I need a will or a trust or both? Who will take care of my young children if it becomes necessary to appoint a guardian for them?

I am here to help. That is why I became a lawyer. I will provide you with all of the information and tools necessary for you to make intelligent decisions. I know what you are going through and it is my goal to make this process as easy for you as possible.

I am interested in building life-long relationships with my clients. When you walk into my office you will notice that I am a very approachable lawyer. I am still professional but I make an effort to not be stuffy and uptight. I will treat you with the respect and candor that you deserve. This may not suit everyone and that is okay. The hundreds of clients that I have worked with to build and protect what is most important over the years appreciate my approach. I am confident that you will, too.

I am a member of the State Bar of Michigan, the Probate and Estate Planning Section of the State Bar of Michigan and the Kalamazoo County Bar Association. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, bicycling throughout the area and am an active outdoorsman.
