An Attorney I trust... and that's saying alot!
It is without hesitation or reservation as a former and long standing client of Ms. Lynne S. Hilowitz that I highly recommend her legal services. She is an outstanding community minded and long time resident of Rockland County who has taken leadership roles within the legal community as an active member of several associations. Ms. Hilowitz is extremely capable in her understanding and knowledge of law along with all of the necessary applications; she is also perceptive, genial and all around refreshing to work with. Ms. Hilowitz has the utmost in professional and ethical standards along with the ability to sift through complicated issues. She listens affably to her clients with a keen, considerate ear. Ms. Hilowitz is not only a genial, accomplished attorney but has the ability to interpret and explain complicated legal matters in clear, logical and comprehensible terms giving her clients more than a reasonable down to earth understanding of all aspects associated with their individual issues and needs. Ms. Hilowitz is an attorney I put my faith and trust in during a very difficult time it was a choice I made without regret! Anita DuJohn-Sims

Thorough and professional Service
I used Ms. Hilowitz for the past 6 years on a complicated trust dispersal after the death of a family member. I was the Trustee. She handled it with expertise and patience seeing it to its amiable conclusion for all concerned even when dealing with exceptionally difficult counsel from other parties. Thank you!

Excellent Attorney
Lynne has been our attorney for about 15 years. She did an excellent job handling retirement planning for my parents as well as for my wife and me, and handled my parents estate efficiently and smoothly. While her expertise is primarily in elder law, she has helped us on a number of non-elder law issues over the years.
