Elder Law Attorneys

Protecting assets for long-term health care needs is a fact of life for many families. Approaches typically used in planning to minimize estate taxes are often in direct conflict with those used in elder law planning to qualify for Medicaid for nursing home care. In situations where both goals are important, our elder law attorney group’s in-depth knowledge and experience with both sets of rules and techniques are invaluable assets to clients.

Our elder law services on Long Island go far beyond legal planning for our clients. A key person on our team of attorneys is an independent geriatric care manager who works closely with clients to create the best care plan for the family member. This includes hospital discharge planning, developing a home care plan or aiding with placement in an appropriate facility. In the event of an emergency, we are ready to act quickly to help the family deal with the crisis.

If Medicaid coverage is required, we take on the complex task of applying for Medicaid, including assembling the required documentation, preparing the detailed Medicaid application and dealing with the appropriate social services agency.
