The Oakland County Bar Association (OCBA) will host a free legal seminar, Seniors’ Law Day, on Thursday, Nov. 3, from 9:45 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Costick Senior Center in Farmington Hills.

These sessions will give seniors information on the legal documents they need to protect themselves and their assets and also inform them about the illegal computer scams happening right now in Southeast Michigan.

Attendees will begin their day with a seminar covering Medical and Financial Powers of Attorney with attorney Harley D. Manela from Mall, Malisow, & Cooney PC. They will then choose from four breakout sessions. The sessions include Buying and Selling Your Home and Reverse Mortgages with Lorray S. C. Brown, Michigan Poverty Law Program; Wills and Trusts with Rachel H. Tucker, Joelson Rosenberg P.L.C.; Guardianships and Conservatorships, presented by Chiara F. Mattieson, Prince Law Firm; and Erasing Your Digital Footprint with Mark St. Peter, Computing Source.
