Elder Law, Estate Planning
and Special Needs Law

(516) 741-9175

When you’re ready to address your future needs and those of your family and other loved ones, you need the guidance and expert services of an experienced legal professional who appreciates that your needs are unique. With this sensitive subject, you need someone you can talk to and trust, who will listen attentively and then explain your legal options in easy-to-understand language.

For more than 30 years, I have provided this level of expert caring, personalized legal representation to families, seniors and persons with disabilities – and I look forward to working with you.

My law firm creates and integrates timely and personalized strategies for elder law planning, including Medicaid applications; special needs law, using special needs trusts and guardianship legal proceedings; and estate and tax planning – always addressing your lifestyle and family needs. I never deliver off-the-shelf ‘cookie cutter’ legal advice and forms.

I am a member of the New York State, Nassau, and Suffolk Bar Associations. I am a past chair of the Nassau County Bar Association’s Elder Law Committee, and past chair of the Senior Umbrella Network of Nassau. I have lectured widely on estate planning topics for associations, libraries and educational organizations, and have published articles on special needs trusts and planning, guardianship legal proceedings, and estate and elder law planning for dignified aging.
