Staci Cosner has been a great help in a time which was difficult for our family. Knowing that estate planning was taken care of in a proper and efficient manner took away additional stress that we would have had to deal with. Staci took extended time and continues to answer all questions as well as explain everything thoroughly as we estate plan for our family members. We feel confident in the plan that we came up with together and felt a part of the process the entire step away. Staci is very prompt and responsive. We would recommend her for future cases pertaining to estate planning, elderly care, health coverage planning, etc.

Elder Care Assistance
Applying for Medicaid can be tedious and intimidating on your own. Retaining an attorney can expedite the process. My attorney, who specializes in elder care, was able to achieve in two months what I could not achieve in two years. With my attorney, the entire process took four months. I no longer have the financial burden to an elder facility and the stress that I did. I appreciate all that my attorney and her staff did to help me in this matter.

Selecting Cosner, Youngelson was a blessing.
As Executor of my late brother's Estate I had the good fortune to select Cosner,Youngelson to represent us. The Probate was complicated by the fact that I live in Arizona and the Estate was in New Jersey which has an Inheritance Tax. And dealing with four different banks (especially Wells Fargo) was frustrating. However Rebecca A. Hand and her staff relieved me of all burdens with their skill, experience and professionalism. They made a difficult task so much easier and I cannot recommend them more .highly. Thank you Ms. Hand and my thanks to your Staff.

Extremely satisfied!
Staci was very impressive from my first initial consultation with her. She spent a great deal of time explaining the Elder Care Systems, as filing a Medicaid application is very complicated and time consuming. Staci was extremely professional, thorough and provided excellent legal advice and suggestions. She responded quickly to any questions, exchanges of information and documents, and always kept me informed throughout the lengthy Medicaid application, which resulted in my mother being eligible to receive Medicaid sooner than we expected. My experience with Staci was very satisfying, and I would not hesitate to hire her again if the need ever arises. Enlistment of a professional is money very well spent, and I highly recommend Staci to anyone with Elder-Law related questions and issues.

Elder Medicaid Perfection
Staci and her staff helped our family through what seemed an impossible situation. We started with an extraordinarily messy Medicaid situation with my dad. We tried to handle the matter ourselves until we hit a frightening dead end. We consulted with our attorney, several actually, but they were all reluctant to take on a case of this complexity. Our attorney did however refer us to Staci, and I'm so glad that he did. His exact words were, "You need a big gun, and Staci's the biggest gun around." Staci knew exactly how to approach this case, and with her staff she executed her plan expeditiously, relentlessly, and flawlessly. With Staci and her team I was confident from the start. They were seemingly always available; at all hours. Whether it was answering my endless questions, appearing in court, or executing documents they were always right there. Their commitment and dedication to my case was plainly evident. They were incredibly effective and amazingly compassionate throughout. I'm quite impressed; in awe even. Unfortunately before everything could be concluded it turned into an estate/Medicaid case, and shortly after that an estate/estate/Medicaid case. Despite all that Staci's team pivoted seamlessly at each turn navigating these trying times and unraveling this knot of legal threads. In the end my resolution has far far exceeded my most optimistic expectations. Staci is perfect at what she does! The saying goes, "You get what you pay for." In this case it was worth every penny many times over. Thank you Staci, Rebecca, Denise, Lisa, Laura, and everyone else! You're the best!

estate matter
Staci and the team there acted on the case quickly. The process went differently than what was described during the free consult, but had successful results.

Good at Estate Law
Attorney Staci Cosner prepared my will and Health Directive, She did a good job. She is knowledgeable in this field. I like the fact that her office answers the phone promptly and they return calls. Another plus is that she charged me a reasonable fee.

I took her for a divorce case which I paid her 10,000.00 until I finally had no choice but to let her go for her incompetency. She told me I would get this and get that by filing a motion against my husband. She had her paralegal do all the work for her. She repeatedly asked me for documents and information she already had in her possession. She did not know all the facts of my case nor the law. In the end, she worsened my case and I was denied just about everything she stated I should have received.

Response from Staci Cosner July 16, 2015
I am sorry that you feel this way. I did my best in representing you in your divorce matter. Our firm always staffs a partner and an attorney associate on our heavily litigated cases. A paralegal did not work on your case. I have been an attorney for 20 years and am very familiar with divorce law. Divorce is very emotional and can be very difficult for people. I wish you all the best in your future.
