Elder Law in Livonia? Eldercare Lawyer? What is it?

Elder law? Eldercare law? What is it? I sometimes hear that lawyers who practice in the elder care are asset protection attorneys or Medicaid attorneys. That is true in part, but only a small part. Elder Law is about that great generation that won World War II, won the Cold War, and built this great country. It's about our parents and grandparents. But, it is more than that. It's about us as caregivers, whether for a parent, a spouse or another. It's about us and our future. It's about our family, our children, the people we hold dear. It's about the life that we love.

If any of the situations we identify here apply to you, give me a call for an appointment. My staff and I are waiting to help you. We look forward to meeting you.
