After working for one of the premier elder law firms in New York City, I opened my own practice in 2009. I pride myself on providing personal service to dozens of middle aged people and seniors through the New York City metropolitan area. My work ranges from drafting wills and trusts, including life insurance trusts and supplemental needs trusts, to drafting powers of attorney and health care proxies; doing Medicaid planning and applications,often involving asset protection; handling probate and estate administration; working on guardianship matters; and co-counseling on elder abuse and personal injury cases. Before starting to practice law in 2005, I was a legal affairs journalist for approximately 20 years.

Peter Arcese Estate planning Attorney
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
I endorse this lawyer. I turn to Peter frequently to discuss some of the most technical aspects of Community Medicaid and Nursing Home Medicaid for my New York City clients. I trust Peter Aronson's advice because he is thorough in how he goes about practicing his profession. I never have to worry that Peter Aronson may not have researched every aspect of the law. He has a fine attention to detail in an area of the law where the rules seemingly change from year to year. And, on those rare occasions where Peter Aronson does not have the answer, I am confident that Peter will not pretend to know what he does not. If Peter doesn't know the answer, he'll tell me so, and that's extremely important for knowing that an attorney is giving credible advice. I endorse this lawyer.
