Our Values

We are committed to helping our clients in a wide array of legal situations, with an emphasis on our extensive experience in the areas of elder law and estate planning. If you or a loved one is elderly and in a nursing home or in need of home care services, we can help develop a plan to preserve your life savings while assisting you in navigating New York’s complicated Medicaid process. If you are middle aged, we can help develop an estate plan to preserve your assets and minimize taxes, including estate, gift and income taxes, while helping to ensure that your ultimate wishes are carried out after you pass away. If you are a young adult or parent, we can develop an estate plan to protect your family and minor children.
