Elder Law of MI Seeking Guardianship and Nursing Home Involuntary Discharge Cases to Assign to Pro Bono Attorneys
Last year, Elder Law of Michigan (ELM) obtained a grant to provide training to lawyers regarding representing individuals who were the subject of guardianship hearings or needed representation in appeals of nursing home involuntary discharges. The trainings were conducted in April of this year at three locations around the state by guardianship expert and Assistant State Long Term Care Ombudsman Brad Geller and MPLP Attorney Alison Hirschel. In return for the free training, more than 20 attorneys in private practice agreed to handle one guardianship or discharge case pro bono. However, ELM reports that they have not had many requests for representation in these cases and are eager to receive requests for pro bono referrals. Requests can be sent to:
