Brighton’s only Certified Elder Law Attorney
As the only Certified Elder Law Attorney in Brighton, Michigan, I’m excited to be at the Livingston County Caregiver Fair on Saturday April 5th, 2014. The Livingston County Caregiver Fair will be held at Brighton High School, 7878 Brighton Rd., Brighton, MI 48116.
The Livingston County Consortium on Aging is one of the sponsors, with over 60 exhibitors providing information on transportation, nutrition, medical, financial assistance, home safety, respite, and home care.
There are many attorneys that say they do elder law, however there are only 15 Certified Elder Law Attorneys (CELA) in Michigan. The CELA designation is the gold standard in elder law. Before you hire a Brighton elder care lawyer to help your family with VA Benefits, Aid & Attendance, Medicaid planning or just navigating the long-term care maze for your family, make sure to check out their credentials.
Are they a Certified Elder Law Attorney?
Only a Certified Elder Law Attorney has been peer reviewed, shown the requisite amount of experience, and demonstrated that knowledge by passing an exam on 12 different topics of elder law.
Certified Elder Law Attorneys have specialized knowledge to help seniors, veterans, and their families navigate the long-term care legal maze. For example, in our office we have unique legal planning strategies to help our clients qualify for the VA Benefit even when the Department of Veterans Affairs say that the veteran or surviving spouse may not qualify.
I help families through the special use of trusts and other legal documents to protect and shelter resources against the catastrophic cost of long-term care.
If you are a senior, veteran of have a loved one who is concerned about the cost of long-term care and has questions on how to qualify for the VA Benefit or Medicaid, give our office a call and we’ll be happy to assist you. You deserve the best representation possible, and there is only one Certified Elder Law Attorney serving families in Brighton Michigan.
