We are an experienced and caring Elder Law firm, located right near you (near the Green Acres Mall in Valley Stream, NY in Nassau County) that concentrates on Elder Law issues, including:
Medicaid Planning - transferring and preserving assets, arranging eligibility, applying for benefits, putting care in place at home or elsewhere.
Guardianship - arranging for some one to be appointed to make personal and property decisions for a person who no longer can.
Estate Planning - Wills, Trusts, and other ways to make sure your assets pass to your loved ones while minimizing taxes, and protecting assets passing to minors or relatives with special needs who are entitled to government benefits.
Advance Directives - Power of Attorney (Note:  New York recently overhauled its  Power of Attorney Law and the Power of Attorney Forms), Health Care Proxy, and Living Will.  Having these in place can give you peace of mind, providing your loved ones with a clear expression of your wishes, as well as the authority to carry them out.
Business Succession - protecting the family business and making sure it gets passed on to future generations.
Saving Taxes - minimize estate and gift taxes, income taxes, and capital gains taxes.
Geriatric Care Management
- getting care in place at home or at an assisted living facility, and
 monitoring it to make sure it suits the needs of the patient and his or her family
