Aaron Futterman, Esq of Futterman, Lanza and Pasculli
When our mom relocated to Florida, we contacted a Florida attorney to have the appropriate legal documents in place. However, over the years her health met with assorted challenges. A bout of protracted health issues transpired and the decision was made to return her to New York. We soon realized that Florida estate planning documents may not be easily utilized in New York State. It became abundantly clear that New York documents were necessary. Through an excellent referral, we met with Aaron Futterman, Esq of Futterman, Lanza and Pasculli. The firm being dually admitted in New York and Florida was more than capable to bridge the two states and assist our mom and family. A short time frame for completion was evident to get the documents finalized. Mr. Futterman was professional, knowledgeable, approachable and accessible to answer all our concerns and questions. His years of experience and ability to dissect, analyze and find resolution to complex matters proved to be an added benefit. At one time, our mom was unable to visit him at his office and he actually met her at her residence. Mr. Futterman’s calming, assuring demeanor with a splash of humor was comforting to my elderly mom. Having dealt with other attorneys, we can absolutely state that Mr. Futterman is an exemplary attorney. The staff at Futterman, Lanza and Pasculli were all equally accommodating. We are so glad to have met and worked with him and will absolutely continue to do so as the need arises.

The best Attorney for Elder Law
When faced with the most challenging and confusing financial crisis facing our family, Mr. Futterman, and his associates provided us with excellent advice and assistance. Having a family member in need of medical care is stressful. Thankfully, Mr. Futterman was there to guide us through the legal maze of Medicare and Medicaid. We will be eternally grateful for his kindness, patience and knowledge. Anyone needing this type of legal assistance would definitely benefit from consulting with this firm. Mr. Futterman, literally, saved our family from serious financial jeopardy. Thank you!

Aaron breaks down the medicaid process into simply terms
I've attended several events where Aaron has spoken about the Medicaid system and he is extremely detailed in his knowledge but breaks it down into simple, easy ways of understanding how it works!

Legal guidance with a human touch
Aaron was recommended to us during a time of extreme stress - trying to figure out how to care for our aging mom, trying to work through the maze of elder care options and laws. Aaron related to what we were going through and helped us plan to make the road ahead less difficult, from the perspective of what was best for Mom, which is what we wanted in an attorney.
