About me

Anthony A. Marrone II focuses his practice and regularly appears in the news and gives public presentations in the areas of elder law, Medicaid, trust and estates, guardianships, and special needs planning.  

His elder law practice focuses on Medicaid pre-planning including the use of trusts to assist clients in protecting assets in advance of incurring long-term care expenses. Mr. Marrone also provides crisis planning to clients who are already in the nursing home and have not implemented an advance plan. Even for these clients, Mr. Marrone is able to preserve a significant portion of their assets. Mr. Marrone also provides Medicaid application assistance and representation through all stages of the Medicaid application process, including fair hearings and appeals of Medicaid denials.

Through his trusts and estates practice, Mr. Marrone helps families protect, preserve, and efficiently transfer wealth.  He uses the latest tax-savings strategies to avoid or minimize estate, gift and income taxes. This practice also includes the preparation of wills, trusts, health care proxies and powers of attorneys for individuals and families. Additionally, Mr. Marrone provides significant post-mortem planning for executors, trustees and estate fiduciaries, and has handled several will and trust contest proceedings. 

Mr. Marrone's guardianship and special needs planning practice includes guardianship applications for disabled minors and adults, both with mental and physical impairments. Additionally, Mr. Marrone regularly prepares trusts for individuals with special needs and clients receiving large settlements seeking to preserve government benefit eligibility. This practice includes comprehensive representation in any legal proceedings and interfacing with Department of Social Services, Social Security Administration and other government agencies to coordinate benefits. 

Prior to founding The Marrone Law Firm, P.C., Mr. Marrone practiced in the Estate and Elder Law department of a regional Upstate New York law firm.

    Anthony and I have known each other for quite some time and I have always been impressed with his character and his passion for his clients. Not only does he listen and advocate for each of his clients but he also teaches the community about how to prepare their estates, wills, etc..
