Wayne County Estate Planning Attorney and Business Lawyer

With an estimated population of 1.8 million residents, Wayne County is the most populous county in Michigan. Wayne County is also home of Detroit, the largest and most popular city in Michigan. The county is named after Revolutionary War General Anthony Wayne.

The County became an official territory in 1796, with the boundaries beginning at the mouth of the Cuyahoga River, westward towards Fort Wayne, to the southernmost part of Lake Michigan, and then around other lakes such as Lake Superior, Lake Erie, and Lake St. Clair and back around to the starting point. However, in 1803, Governor of the Indiana Territory, William Henry Harrison divided up much of Michigan Territory and part of it became what is known today as Chicago.

Currently, Wayne County is a total area of 673 square miles broken up to 612 square miles of land and 61 square miles of water (including Detroit River and Lake St. Clair). Wayne County borders other Michigan counties such as Macomb County, Oakland County, Washtenaw County, and Essex County located in Ontario, Canada.  

According to the 2010 Census, 702,749 households had children living under the age of 18. The average household size was 2.56 with the average family size of 3.22. Since so many households in the area have children, if you are a resident of Wayne County, it’s very important to speak with an estate planning attorney. In the event of incapacitation or an unexpected loss, ensuring that your family has the financial freedom and same quality life should not be overlooked.
