I work with you so you can accomplish your legal, financial and healthcare goals. It is important to properly plan in advance for illnesses, disabilities or unforeseen accidents. Advance planning can ensure that you can receive the care you deserve without depleting your financial resources. I also assist families who believe someone they love has been subjected to elder abuse.
Currently my practice focuses on:
Guardianships - I represent individuals in Article 81 and 17A Guardianship proceedings, which deal with the appointments of guardians to manage the affairs of minors or incapacitated adults -- including both financial and medical decisions;
Elder Law - I work with elders so that they can accomplish their legal, financial and healthcare goals. It is important to properly plan in advance for illnesses, disabilities or unforeseen accidents. Advance planning can ensure that elders receive the care they deserve without depleting their financial resources. I also assist families who believe someone they love has been subjected to elder abuse.
Estate Planning - I work with individuals and families to devisevalid estate plans to protect their assets and loved ones. A personalized estate plan may include including wills, trusts, powers of attorney, and healthcare directives to give clients peace of mind that they have done everything to protect those they love --alleviating some of the stress in an already emotional situation.
Probate and Estate Administration - Whether an individual dies with or without a will, I can represent families to guide them through the complex Surrogate Court procedures for administering estate assets.
