Marlaine C. Teahan leads the Trusts and Estates practice and previously served on the Board of Directors as Secretary and Treasurer at Fraser Trebilcock. She is a Fellow of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel, and is a past Chair of the Probate and Estate Planning Section of the State Bar of Michigan. Her outstanding legal work continues to be recognized among her peers and leading legal publications, including selection as one of the Top 100 Super Lawyers in Michigan and as the Lawyer of the Year in Trusts and Estates for Lansing, Michigan for Best Lawyers.
It's important to Marlaine to be active in the community. She regularly volunteers her time, having served on the Board of Directors of her Church, and acting as a past member of the Board of Trustees for the Capital Region Community Foundation, an organization that works to enhance the quality of life in the Tri-County area through permanent, charitable endowment funds. She also volunteered with her sons’ Boy Scout Troop (Troop 645 of Grand Ledge, Michigan), serving for many years on the Executive Committee and as the Secretary. Marlaine’s fondest service memory is of a 2011 family mission trip to the Dominican Republic in which she and her family helped build a school and worked each day with the community’s children. She currently attends a small group and is on the Greeting Team at Rivers Edge Community Church.
