Why an Elder Law Attorney?

An attorney's product is his knowledge and experience. This is manifested in the skill he or she uses in creating estate plans and implementing them in the documents he or she prepares. The attorney must be sure to include the necessary language, crafting it carefully and knowing the language not to include. This will result in estate plan documents tailored to meet the needs of that client and creating the outcome he or she desires.

Organizations sell legal forms, but this is analogous to purchasing surgical equipment. Having an individual with little or no training advising one how to use them will not provide the best results.

A license to practice law protects the public by insuring the attorney possess a minimum of knowledge in legal matters.

The Internal Revenue Code, New York State Tax Law, Medicaid Law and the New York State Estates Powers and Trust Law are very complex laws. Creating an estate plan that deals with these laws, along with practical consideration, can be very challenging. Employing an attorney with only a minimum of knowledge to prepare one's Will, Trust or other estate planning document will most likely not provide the best results.

An Elder Law & Estate Attorney concentrates in this very area and as a result has gained advanced knowledge and experience in planning estates.

So you must ask yourself the question, Do you and your loved ones deserve the best?
