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.
