A former big NYC corporate attorney, after dealing with my disabled sister and and my aging parents, I decided to  switch my practice area to one I felt emotionally connected and commited to, Elder Law.  I went back to school and got a masters in Elder Law and Estate Planning. Then I was hired by esteemed Elder Law attorney, Dean Bress. When Dean retired I took over his practice.  Having experienced  the stress, worry and concerns facing my clients, I beleive I can emapathize and problem solve with them to find solutions to the most challenging  problems. Armed with the professionalism I learned as an associate at Rogers & Well,  my many years of education, in school and on the job, and the compassion  I share based on my own life experiences, I beleive I offer the very best legal services to all of my clients.

Knowledgeable And Caring
Ms. Cassidy worked with my aging parents to set up their financial situation for long term care and income. There is no way we could have navigated such a complex system without her. She explained everything in detail so that we could all understand our best choices. All of our questions were answered patiently so that we were comfortable with our decisions. My sister and I no longer have to worry about our parents’ finances to live or pay for long term health care.

Michele has guided me every step of the way. She made it possible to remove my dear friend from a nursing home and get her into her home environment, where she preferred to be. Now she's receiving great care and her assets are protected. I highly recommend Cassidy Law Firm.

Michele has successfully handled several matters for me, the last of which was probating my mother's will. She also has handled the probating of my uncle's properties which was complicated due to a lack of a will. Michele also handled a matter involving a mold removal company and questionable services.
