As a licensed elder law attorney in private practice for 20 years, Shawn Weera has been helping retirees and wartime veterans preserve and grow their estates through wise and efficient planning. Weera now utilizes his expertise in order to find strategic solutions to protect client assets from nursing home or other long-term care expenses, avoid or eliminate probate and estate taxes, minimize taxes on income and social security, and maximize returns on investment assets while mitigating risk exposure.

Dedicated to his craft, Weera has hosted countless free seminars to help educate citizens about a wide range of elder law, Medicaid, Medicare, and estate planning issues affecting Michigan residents. These sessions prove to be invaluable for anyone who has questions about asset protection planning, have a loved one in an assisted living or nursing home facility, or have a family member who is receiving in-home care.
