Scott W. Kraemer


Scott has extensive litigation, trial, and appellate experience representing businesses and individuals in state and federal courts throughout Michigan, Florida, and in other federal districts. He is proud to protect the interests of decedents, trustees, and beneficiaries in will and trust litigation. While Scott specializes in complex civil and probate litigation, he proactively advises brokers, salespersons, and all varieties of real estate businesses how to protect their interests and avoid litigation. Whether working in the courtroom or the boardroom, for every client, Scott's goal is the same: to provide insightful legal services that protect individuals and add value to businesses.

Scott is licensed and practices business, real estate, and trust litigation in the states of Michigan and Florida and the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Michigan, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit.

Prior to practicing law, Scott was a professional jazz guitarist, bandleader, and composer. Though his career has changed, Scott still utilizes the same skills that made him a successful jazz musician: creative thinking, responsiveness, dedicated listening, and the desire to continually implement, adopt and adapt to new ideas.

In his spare time, Scott enjoys CrossFit, running, and spending time with his family. He loves watching his son play hockey and his daughter dance.
