Brandon Thomson Brings Elder Law to The Probate Pro

It is with great excitement that we welcome Brandon Thomson to our legal team! Brandon began sharing his talent with us as an official Probate Pro earlier this month.

Brandon joins us after a fruitful career serving practice areas very similar to our own, but also including elder law, Medicaid planning, and Veterans administration benefits. Recently, Brandon worked as the sole attorney in his own practice where he focused on helping families have confidence when faced with the challenges presented by long life, illness, and disability. Prior to using his expertise to start his own practice, Brandon was a valued member at local elder law firms. In his prior positions he gained priceless experience working with seniors and cultivating his passion for helping them through end-of-life challenges.

Brandon holds membership to the State Bar of Michigan, including the Probate and Estate Planning section, the Elder Law section, and the Disability Rights section. Brandon is also an Attorney Advisor Board Member on the Henry Ford Wyandotte Hospital Ethics Committee, and a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys.

After earning his B.A. from Siena Heights University, Brandon went on to achieve his Juris Doctor at Western Michigan University Cooley Law School. While attending WMU, Brandon was the Assistant Editor of the Law Review.

Brandon has been recognized as a “Rising Star” by Super Lawyers in 2018, and he was ranked a “Top 10 Elder Law Attorney” by the American Institute of Legal Counsel. He has also been a featured speaker at the National Business Institute seminar “Protecting Assets While Qualifying for Medicaid.”

His career path was not traditional, in fact, Brandon began as a teacher. After school he was a Zamboni driver at the local ice rink. He started a job as a Schwan’s Truck driver and that is where he learned his passion for helping seniors. He found the area of law that he wanted to practice, and he made his dream a reality. He says that he has never regretted that decision and that he loves being an advocate for seniors.
