We are pleased to announce that our own Patrick Mannor here at Michigan Estate Planning Law Center has received Accreditation by the Department of Veterans Affairs Office of General Counsel. Mr. Mannor is one of only ten non-attorney “Accredited Agents” in the state of Michigan.
An Accredited Agent must establish that he or she is of good character and reputation, is qualified to render valuable assistance to Veterans, and is otherwise competent to advise and assist Veterans in the preparation, presentation, and prosecution of their claim before The Department of Veterans Affairs.
The Code of Federal Regulations stipulates that no individual may assist Veterans in the preparation, presentation, and prosecution of claims for VA benefits unless he or she has first been accredited by The Department of Veterans Affairs for such purposes.
Mr. Mannor works with our two Accredited Attorneys at Michigan EPLC. Managing Attorney Robert Mannor (Patrick’s brother) and Attorney Jennifer Ackroyd-Fabris are both accredited with the VA as well. We have offices in Grand Blanc, Farmington Hills, and Saginaw.
This accreditation is great news, allowing us to help even more people with qualifying to receive well-deserved veterans benefits to help pay for assisted living or in-home care when needed. If you or a loved one are a veteran or the surviving spouse of a veteran who needs care and assistance for medication management, meal preparation, and other activities of daily living this may be a tremendous blessing for you and your family.
