What Makes Our Elder Law and Estate Planning Law Firm Different?

By Stephen J. Silverberg
New York Elder Law Attorney

Thanks to Zola Suite for creating a great video that captures the essence of our firm (scroll down to the bottom of the home page of our website to see it).

We might meet with a client in the morning with $100,000 in assets who needs help with a Medicaid application, followed by a three-hour session focused on tax planning for a client whose net worth is over $200 million.

Elder Law is more than planning for Medicaid. Elder Law spans more than dozen different fields of law, and no single Elder Law attorney does everything.

We have a strong background in tax planning, so we are frequently asked to consult with Elder Lawyers and estate planning attorneys.

Estate Planning is more than drafting wills, medical directives, and power of attorney forms.

We work with clients to make sure that their assets are distributed as they want and that their family is protected.

We deal with people, and people have problems. We help people solve these problems.  We do it with legal knowledge and compassion.
