    About My Business
    Senior citizens in the Detroit Tri-County area need a good attorney.

    The Center for Elder Law is a division of The Law Firm of Barron, Rosenberg, Mayoras and Mayoras. The Center for Elder Law is a well-known, full-service facility, covering every legal issue affecting the lives of seniors or their families.

    Our attorneys do it all; whether you need to protect assets from a nursing home, qualify seniors for Medicaid, establish a simple will or a comprehensive estate plan, prepare a living trust, set up or administrate an estate, pass through probate proceedings, need a referral to a care managers for nursing home and assisted living placement, enact a Power of Attorney, resolve a family dispute, or other concerns, our lawyers can help. In short there is no part of the legal problems confronting senior citizens and their families that our lawyers cannot handle.

    Too many Detroit-area seniors don't know the importance of having a good lawyer on their side. As experienced and knowledgeable elder law attorneys, our goal is to help you plan for the future and protect and preserve the lifetime of savings that you or your loved ones have worked so hard to accumulate.

    We invite you to explore our web site. In doing so, you will discover how we can help you save you, or your family, up to hundreds of thousands of dollars, through nursing home planning, estate planning or both. In fact, we can help you save this money, even for loved ones already in a nursing home! This is especially important because the average cost of a nursing home in Michigan exceeds $80,000 per year.

    The Center for Elder Law can show you how to use the current Medicaid laws to your advantage. Even with the new laws, there is no reason to spend a lifetime of savings paying for a nursing home! Don't believe the many Medicaid Myths that lead people to believe that Medicaid can't help. For example, you don’t have to spend your lifetime of savings to pay for a nursing home. You don’t usually have to wait five years to qualify for Medicaid after making a gift or transfer. You don't have to lose your home. You can protect your assets even if you or your loved one is already in a nursing home.

    At our law firm, our lawyers work hard to inform our clients of the facts, dispelling the misinformation and myth that surround senior issues.
