Spencer A. Michaels is an associate attorney in Stark & Knoll’s Estate Planning & Probate Group. Spencer focuses his practice in the areas of estate planning, probate administration, guardianships, Medicaid planning, disability trusts, and special needs planning.


Prior to joining Stark & Knoll, Spencer worked for a small law firm in Cleveland practicing school law. Spencer made the switch to Stark & Knoll’s Estate Planning & Probate group so he could have a more direct and involved relationship with the individuals he represents.

“Prudent estate planning requires careful preparation. Wills, Trusts, and other estate planning documents become confusing quickly, especially when planning for multiple end-of-life possibilities. My goal is to provide my clients clear and understandable guidance regarding which estate planning tools will properly fulfill their needs. I want each of my clients to exhale in relief when they sign their documents because they know their wishes will be fulfilled.”
