About Jeffrey Asher

About me

I concentrate primarily in the areas of Estate Planning, Estate and Trust Litigation, Elder Law and Medicaid Planning, Asset Protection, Estates and Trusts Administration, and Special Needs Planning.


I am admitted to practice in New York and Connecticut.  I am a member of the New York State Bar Association, where I serve on the Executive Committee of the Elder Law and Special Needs Section and am Co-Chair of the Estates, Trusts and Tax Issues Committee.  I am also a Chair of the Elder Law Section of the New York County Lawyers' Association.


I am a legal commentator on Trusts & Estates and Elder Law matters for TruTV, Court TV, CNN Headline News, and The CBS Early Show.  I was featured in the HBO Documentary "Bobby Fischer Against the World:  Fight for the Fischer Estate".  


I am also a frequent lecturer for various financial institutions, civic groups, and community organizations, and am often presented by the New York State Bar Association as a community educator on various topics.
