The Law Office of Inna Fershteyn and Associates, P.C. is a leading Trust and Estate and Elder Care Planning law firm in the greater New York and New Jersey area.  Over a period of 22 years in practice, we have established high legal standards which we work hard to maintain. Attorney Inna Fershteyn is the founder of the leading trust and estate planning firm.  Her practice focuses on all aspects of estate planning and elder Law such as: asset protection, trust formation, medicaid planning, medicaid fraud, business continuation planning, probate and administration of estates, guardianship proceedings, and estate litigation.  Our office brings competitive spirit and dedicated attention to each case and provides an individual approach to every client. We are licensed in New York and New Jersey.

           For many clients, Ms. Fershteyn is nothing short of a hero.  They consistently describe her as someone who will listen to their case in its entirety while strategizing the next optimal course of action to guide them through the legal process.  Inna accommodates clients from all walks of life, serving the elderly or those who have little or no legal expertise and have never dealt with an attorney in the past.

          Clients remember Ms. Fershteyn’s diligence and attention to details.  Whether clients need to provide financial security for their loved ones or to take an employer to court for discrimination in the workplace, Ms. Fershteyn is there.  Ms. Fershteyn and her staff eradicate civil disputes with a cool, underhanded approach that makes no enemies, yet takes no prisoners.

  As one client attests:

  “My mom can be quite demanding and overwhelming with her criticism. And yet, I've heard nothing but good things about how attentive and professional both Mrs. Fershteyn and her staff have been while working with my parents. Mrs. Fershteyn was in constant contact throughout the entire process, always addressing their concerns and questions with patience... If it were not for her and her staff patience and professionalism, I'm sure I would have been the one to be pestered the entire time. On behalf of my parents and my sanity, I cannot recommend Mrs. Fershteyn's office enough.”

Superior Estate Planning
Because of changing circumstances, I needed  expert estate planning advice.  Through my research and referrals, one name kept popping up - the Law Office of Inna Fershteyn and Associates, PC - so I made an appointment.  During a very pleasant interview, Ms. Fershteyn delved into my desires and intent, while explaining the reasons for each question.  After discussing several alternatives, Ms. Fershteyn determined that a revocable trust together with a living will plus power of attorney were best suited to accomplish my present goals rather than a last will and testament.  (No other attorney had presented me with that alternative.).  Ms. Fershteyn carefully and fully explained how each instrument operated and patiently answered all  questions.  In addition, Ms. Fershteyn introduced me to and arranged for a consultation with David Gulyamov, wealth manager with GGW Financial Group, to discuss methods of funding the trust and alternative investments.  I was so impressed with Ms. Fershteyn's legal advice and service that I brought another person with me to consult with her after I executed my trust. I wholeheartedly recommend Inna Fershteyn for her legal expertise and ethics!

Amazing trust and estate lawyer
Inna Fershteyn is first of all a great person and second a great attorney. She goes above and beyond for every client and she is extremely approachable and accessible. My friend did a will in her office last week and recommended that I do the same as I needed to set up healthcare proxy and power of attorney. I saw Inna and felt so comfortable with her that I gave her my entire life story. Inna was very understandable and really warm. She prepared and executed will with me within days and also set up separate free consultation for me with financial planner to review my pension plan and IRAs. I can not recommend Inna and her office highly enough. She is always available to answer questions and she is an amazing human.

5 Star estate planning lawyer, Highly Recommend!
I highly recommend Inna Fershteyn, Esq. for estate planning. If I could give her 6 stars, I would ! I first contacted Inna in June 2020 once my daughter was four months old. I realized I needed to begin estate planning to cover all my bases and mitigate risks for my family. After thorough research, I selected Inna due to her impeccable reputation. One thing I noticed right away was she got back to me quickly and was prompt at all times. I was also able to work directly with Inna, the Principal attorney. This kind of attention occurred from beginning to end of the process, and it put me at ease. Her legal knowledge and vocabulary was outstanding, and her recommendations were clever, based in sound legal rationale. She also took the time to explain things clearly and simply too. You can see how much she cares about Clients. In the end, thanks to Inna, we were able to draft not just Wills for my immediate family, but also a Trust for my Father. She also provided helpful advice on long term health care planning and elder law planning strategies we should consider, which I was very grateful to hear. Looking back, I know I am very fortunate that I made this choice. I have no reservations about recommending her firm to anyone seeking estate planning or elder law planning services. I plan to hire her again in the future and highly recommend others do too. Thank you, Inna!

One of the BEST estate attorneys in our area!
After much research for an estate planning attorney, I discovered Inna’s website. Not only did it have a wealth of information but after contacting Inna and discussing my situation, she provided the greatest advice which made me feel safe and secure. It’s great to know that an attorney, like Inna, listens and makes you feel that your are more than a name and a client. If you discovered her website, or referred by anyone, don’t look any further because she is one of the best estate lawyers in our area!

Best T&E attorney
Inna is the best elder care lawyer! She set up a trust for me and my 3 kids, gave me college advice and was able to put my mind at ease. Most important she is kind and professional and treats every person the way she herself wants to be treated. I already recommended her to all my friends and family but I just want to say the feeling that I had working with her was that she was my friend.

The Best!
My family hired Inna Fershteyn to get my aunt approved for Emergency MLTC Medicaid; she has dementia and her care would otherwise have bankrupted the family. She also made sure that we can get MLTC. She has a very high level of knowledge in the area of geriatric law and how to navigate the world of MLTC approvals and home assistants. We were very specific as tho what we wanted to do and Inna was very accommodating and understanding. After about 2 moths of very hard work my aunt was approved for 24 hour care and was able to leave the rehab to go to her own home. We recommend Inna Fershteyn and her Medicaid assistance team very highly.

Very knowledgeable and committed to her clients:
Inna Fershteyn is not only excellent at what she does, but also a compassionate human being. I went to her office afraid, uncertain and in doubt, she explained my case to me patiently, possible legal paths forward and then got to work! In less than two months we reached the most desirable outcome possible to my case. It was like a miracle, but it wasn't. It was Inna's expertise and commitment to her client. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking council that will stand by your side till the winning end.
