Our Services: Michigan Elder Law
The Family & Aging Law Center is a law firm focused on not only what happens when you die...but also, what happens when you live and need care? That's elder law, and that's what we do.
Our Elder Law Services
Elder law is a specialized area of legal practice that focuses on the needs and rights of older adults. Elder law attorneys are legal professionals who are concerned with the needs of seniors and their families.
We provide a range of assistance, with one of the most vital being asset protection strategies.
Our elder law services also cover many other legal issues, including:
long-term care planning
guardianship and/or conservatorship
Medicaid, Medicare, and other health insurance issues
nursing home care
With the cost of long-term care skyrocketing, our firm can help you navigate the complex web of regulations and programs to guard your assets from nursing homes and healthcare costs.
We can also help with crisis healthcare advocacy, ensuring seniors receive appropriate care while maximizing government benefits.
Why Talk To An Elder Law Attorney?
As we age, the likelihood of needing long-term care increases significantly. From nursing homes to assisted living facilities, the expenses can be overwhelming.
It's no secret that long-term care can be expensive, and the reality is that most senior do not have the funds to cover the costs.
This can be daunting and overwhelming, but it's important to know that we are available to help. From Medicaid to veteran's benefits, exploring all options to ensure you or your loved ones can receive the care you need without breaking the bank is important.
That's where we come in! Not only do we provide asset protection strategies, but we also advocate for quality healthcare for seniors.
Our Michigan Elder Law Services Are About More Than Financial Matters
Beyond financial matters, our firm also plays a critical role in estate planning and life care planning. Estate planning helps maintain family privacy and financial security, while life care planning ensures ongoing quality of life for seniors, including keeping your independence as long as possible.
Examples of successful outcomes from our elder law attorney and products include asset protection, savings on healthcare costs, and clients receiving quality care due to advocacy from elder law attorneys.
Our firm has expertise in understanding the laws and regulations governing these topics and how they may affect elderly individuals or their families.

Bottom line? Michigan elder law services are extremely important because most Michigan families cannot afford the care they need as they age.
Death Planning Isn't The Whole Story
Of course, all of the things that estate planning solves are very important.
But you must also consider: what happens if you live and need care? What if you need care that Medicare and your private insurance will not cover? Can you get long-term care insurance (even if you can, is it the best way to spend your money)? Can you afford the high costs of long-term care?
