For those who are tasked with caring for an aging parent, dealing with finances, long-term care options, probate court and difficult family dynamics, can seem like an impossible feat. The attorneys and staff at Troy-based Barron, Rosenberg, Mayoras & Mayoras are deeply devoted to elder law and helping to make sense of the often complicated work.
“It’s really critical that people with questions or problems in the area of elder law go to an attorney with that expertise. You don’t want to go to someone who just dabbles in this,” says Danielle Mayoras, partner with Barron, Rosenberg, Mayoras & Mayoras.
Barron, Rosenberg, Mayoras & Mayoras also helps families when they are fighting over a will or a trust, financial exploitation issues, estate planning, and other areas that Mayoras says are important for all individuals.
“Children caring for their aging parents need to make sure their parents have the appropriate documentation – a will or a trust and power of attorney,” Mayoras says. While some people may think they don’t have enough in assets or that their spouse will be able to make important decisions for them should they be incapacitated, it just isn’t always the case and everyone needs estate planning.
“Whether a person is in good health or not, we aren’t promised tomorrow. Make sure there is a basic estate plan in place,” Mayoras says.
The attorneys at Barron, Rosenberg, Mayoras & Mayoras make that process as easy as possible.
“We really streamline the process for our clients. We want to understand the client’s goals and create the documents they need. We don’t expect our clients to understand legalese. We just need them to define their goals, so we can help them achieve those goals,” Mayoras says.
It doesn’t matter if a client has a modest estate or is a multimillionaire – estate planning ensures that they maintain control and their wishes are followed when they are no longer able to advocate for themselves or when they pass away, and can reduce family fighting.
Estate planning can be more impactful than ever when there are difficult family dynamics, like a second marriage or siblings who do not get along.
“We have attorneys with special expertise in those difficult situations, both to help you with planning and to avoid a family fight, and litigators in case a dispute has already begun,” she says.
Paying for long-term care costs is often a significant stressor for families. Our expertise in Medicaid planning can provide invaluable information to families and help to relieve their stress.
Barron, Rosenberg, Mayoras & Mayoras offers a free document review and a free initial consultation for those who need it.
“This is an opportunity for us to get to know a potential client and a chance for them to get to pick our brains and get their questions answered. For our existing clients, review meetings are important for us to maintain our relationship and make sure that everything is up-to-date and in line with current regulations,” Mayoras says.
The attorney-client relationship is important, she says, and the clients should feel comfortable with the attorney helping them to attain their goals.
“Find an attorney that you are able to open up with and really establish a rapport with,” Mayoras says. “We are not a large corporation. We give a lot of TLC and hand-holding to our clients. We value the relationships we have with them. We are here to protect our clients the way we would our own family members.”
Barron, Rosenberg, Mayoras & Mayoras has clients from all over the state of Michigan. They also have an attorney licensed in the state of Florida, which is helpful to families that have parents who live in Florida or travel back and forth between Michigan and Florida.
“We have superior credentials. Each attorney has an impressive resume, but between all of the partners, we are even more impressive,” Mayoras says. “We all specialize in different areas and we are not dabbling in any area of law. We are able to hone our legal expertise in a specific area.”
