Michigan Elder Law Attorney Receives Certification in Elder Law
Bloomfield Hills, MI (Law Firm Newswire) February 4, 2013 – The National Elder Law Foundation (NELF) is the only legal foundation which has the approval of the American Bar Association to offer elder law certification.
Christopher J. Berry, attorney with Witzke Berry Carter & Wander PLLC, of BLoomfield Hills, Michigan, has successfully completed the NELF examination, and has been certified to practice elder law.

Born in southeast Michigan, Mr.Berry has devoted his career to serving seniors. He is an experienced elder law attorney, and focuses his practice on a number of areas, including estate planning, long-term care planning, veterans’ benefits and asset preservation planning, special needs planning, trusts, probate litigation, and Medicaid planning.
Attorney Berry is also an in-demand elder law speaker and presenter. He also writes for the national Financial Planning Association and WealthCounsel, and has written for the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys on Veterans’ Benefits and Medicaid Planning.
Certified elder law attorneys have proven themselves as experts on legal issues affecting seniors and are experienced with public and private services and resources available for seniors and seniors with disabilities. To become a Certified elder law attorney, that attorney has demonstrated a consistent commitment to working as a resource for senior clients and their families.
A certified elder law attorney must be certified by the Board of Certification of the National Elder Law Foundation (NELF), a nonprofit organization founded in 1993. The foundation is dedicated to supporting and educating lawyers focused on elder law and special needs, and ensuring their competence for clients.
