A: I'm sorry for your ordeal as a senior, and that Michigan DHS was not able to help you. Contact the State Bar of Michigan - they have resources for legal aid for the public. Also look into law schools in your area. Some law schools have clinics or internships where their students provide legal services to the community as a public service based on need. Good luck
