Summary

Brandon received his undergraduate degree with honors from Michigan State University in History with a concentration in Mandarin Chinese, and his JD from Case Western Reserve University School of Law in 2011.

Brandon treats his clients like family, protecting their interests as if they were his own, and making sound recommendations to help them accomplish their planning goals. Brandon also practices elder law, where he helps clients qualify for Medicaid's long term care benefit. He has helped clients preserve their family home and their assets from estate recovery claims. He is well-versed in setting up guardianships and conservatorships and in litigating contested matters in the probate court. Brandon also develops business succession plans to pass successful businesses on to the next generation.
