About me

I have an active law practice in Manhattan, taking on cases in the NYC area and Long Island. My solo practice focuses on Elder Law, Trusts and Estates, Guardianship, Special Needs Trusts, Estate Planning and Estate Administration. This includes preparation of trusts, wills, work on Advance Directives such as Powers of Attorney and Health Care Proxies, Medicaid planning, Medicaid Home Care, Institutional Medicaid and Medicare. I attend a monthly Elder Law study group with numerous colleagues, where we provide assistance to each other on issues which come up in our practice. I have volunteered my services at Selfhelp Community Service Inc's Evelyn Frank Legal Research Program (recently moved over to NYLAG), working directly with Valerie Bogart and David Silva. I am also a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA), the NYS Bar Association Elder Law Section and the Trusts and Estates Section, Eldercare Matters, and The Orion Resource Group.
