We Bring Peace Of Mind During Difficult Times

We are NY elder law attorneys dedicated to helping the elderly, disabled, persons with special needs and those suffering from alzheimers and dementia. Understanding the legal and practical issues and needs of these elderly individuals takes a special type of Bronx elder law lawyer. Estate planning, elder law, Medicaid and estate law can be daunting and confusing to the general public, those who work in the health care field and even attorneys who do not truly practice in this specific area.

As a result, in my practice every day, I see and hear from my clients a lot of misinformation and bad advice going around by these people that brings about catastrophic results when it comes to protecting and preserving assets in the face of the astronomical cost of long term nursing care and elder care cost in NY. An expert estate planning lawyer in Staten Island NY can help you in this regard. Our offices are located in Staten Island, New York, Brooklyn, Bronx, White Plains, Garden City, Melville, NY.

We are New York elder law lawyers dedicated in educating our clients and their families in taking a proactive approach to estate and Medicaid planning so that family members will have the proper legal documents, tools and advice at their disposal to properly protect and preserve assets against NY nursing homes and the high cost of long term care, so that we can insure the proper transfer of wealth to the next generation and not have the family’s inheritance wiped out and spent on the catastrophic costs associated with long term care costs. Our guardianship attorney in Staten Island NY can help you in this case.

We are New York elder law attorneys dedicated to providing our clients and their families with the finest legal representation available in Manhattan, White Plains, Bronx, Long Island, Staten Island, Brooklyn, and Queens, NY. Our understanding and experience in this highly complicated area of the law helps our clients and their families make the right choices when it comes to protecting and preservation of their assets at a very vulnerable time in their lives and qualifying them for NY Medicaid in the face of the high cost of long term care in New York so that assets can be passed on and properly inherited by those who the client wishes to inherit and not spent on New York nursing home care. We are there to secure that family member the health care services and placement they need at a very vulnerable time in their lives and we are also there to make sure that the proper transfer of wealth takes place with the proper reduction or elimination of estate and capital gains tax.
