About Me

I am an elder law and estate planning attorney
and LOVE what I do. I am a principal and founding member of the The
Center for Elder Law. For more information visit our web site www.thecenterforelderlaw.com . Not only do I practice I
live it everyday. My parents will both be 90 in August and currently
live in supported semi-independent living setting. As for me I am very
active in several organizations. I have been specializing in Elder Law
since 1989. I am the current Chairperson (President) of the  Board of Directors of the Alzheimer’s
Association - Greater Michigan Chapter.  I am also Chair Person of the Elder Law and Disability Rights Section of the State Bar of
Michigan.  I have been listed in experience registry of the National
Academy of Elder Law Attorneys since June of 1991. As you can see I have been practicing
Elder Law before it was even considered Elder Law.

  • Todd D. Schmitz

    I endorse Attorney Don Rosenberg. I have worked directly with Don on several matters. Don is an outstanding attorney. He is knowledgeable and thorough. I have personally seen Don achieve results where other experienced elder law attorney could not. Don's credentials are impeccable. Don routinely headlines legal seminars about elder law attended by attorneys. He is as comfortable teaching other attorneys about elder law, as he is speaking to individual clients who rely on Don to find a solution for family members. Don has the knowledge and ability, and his firm has the capacity, to assist a client from basic to advanced estate planning, to veterans, disability and/or Medicaid benefits, even navigating through an administrative hearing or court case, if necessary. In my opinion, Attorney Don Rosenberg is one of the best estate planning attorneys in the country. It is an honor to call Attorney Don Rosenberg a colleague.
