I like most other people I know have hardly any familiarity with "Elder Law". I knew only that I had a Mother who is 89 and has many of the mental issues that accompany making it to old age.
I had a highly unusual family situation due to the fact that there was no next generation to think about or to help with our issues. No kids, no grandkids.
I'm in my late 60's and not well, my brother is in the same situation. Not a clue how to proceed with making sure there would be a plan to care for my Mother and still have the means to live our daily lives.
Marty was able to formulate a way to do what was needed and allay most of my fear and uncertainty.
Being an expert in Elder Law and taxation he came up with a plan to make the most of the assets we had in a tax efficient way while makiing certain we could be able to procure the most benefits for my Mother in the future.
He is incredibly analytical, and makes sure all the I's are dotted and the T's are crossed.
He got in touch with my CPA and Financial Advisor to make sure everyone was on the same page and knew what needed to be done for my family's best interests.
He explained what he was doing and how it would help my family achieve the goals we laid out for him.
He spent an incredible amount of time with us going over everything we asked him about and helped us to understand how it would all work. Not easy for the average lay person, believe me! There were things that caused my head to spin but in the end I felt comfortable knowing Marty would be there for us when we needed him. Gave me peace of mind I did not have prior to retaining him!
He was very understanding and patient with our numerous questions and repeatedly made sure we were comfortable with what he was was doing for us.
He is an amazing legal talent and an amazing human being. I had been to other attorneys before and had even paid for the priveledge.
I knew when we met Marty he was "The Guy"!!
Before you do anything concerning something as important as your family's future please call Marty Cohen.

I contacted this gentleman and he provided the most professional and sensitive advice i could have asked for. He was sensitive to the family situation, and freely gave advice without looking for compensation.

A lawyer who is truly dedicated to his profession and "elder law". Mr. Cohen is the elder law attorneys tax lawyer. I have not only had the privilege of working with Mr. Cohen, I have attended several continuing legal education seminars for elder law attorneys where he has been a guest lecturer on estate planning techniques, trust drafting, tax ramifications of asset protection planning for the elderly, and Medicaid planning. Mr. Cohen's analytic skills, ability and knowledge of complex asset protection trust drafting for seniors and the disabled is extraordinary.
