John B. Payne, Jr., Attorney

first established his practice in Wyandotte in 1983, moving to Dearborn in 1985. The practice initially was concentrated on appellate and administrative matters. It was expanded into a full-service general practice and litigation firm in 1988, when John received his LL.M. in Taxation. The firm now handles a wide range of legal services. Although it is a solo practice, highly qualified legal paraprofessionals assist the attorney, and several accountants have a continuing relationship to the firm. The firm encourages continuing professional development for all employees and has adopted the Michigan State Bar Pro Bono Standard. The firm has a sliding fee scale based on ability to pay for Medicaid planning for nursing home patients and other low-income persons. John frequently lectures on estate planning and other topics to groups interested in legal issues.
