From cottage ownership and critical dune areas to boundary disputes and access rights, our attorneys are familiar with the nuances of purchasing Lake Michigan waterfront property including:

  • Critical Dune Areas

Residential & Vacation Property

In many instances, Lake Michigan property has been passed down from generation to generation and may present unique title predicaments.  Careful review, by a qualified attorney, is imperative.
