Rutkowski Law Firm Sponsors Interactive Senior Panel on Elder Law and Finance

ROCHESTER, Michigan - Elder Law Attorney Michael Rutkowski, Founder of Rutkowski Law Firm: Asset Protection & Estate Planning, participated in an interactive panel hosted by Navigate Home on June 7. During the event, Rutkowski and an assortment of experts in various fields offered valuable information to seniors and their children about financial planning, estate planning, how to protect their assets if they transition into a care facility, and the resources available to them if considering a care facility. As they enjoyed wine and charcuterie at the complimentary event, attendees asked questions and received answers from the expert panel.

“My passion is helping people,” says Rutkowski. “For the past decade, I have used my legal knowledge and experience to protect my senior clients’ hard-earned life savings from the significant expense of long-term care. It’s my pleasure to sponsor and participate in events like the Navigate Home panel to let seniors know about their options and answer any questions they may have. I’m thankful to Navigate Home and everyone who helped organize this successful event and look forward to participating in many more.”
