New York lawyers dedicated to seniors’ healthcare
Access to good medical care is essential to your health and quality of life. Our attorneys assist you in maneuvering through the red tape of Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance companies so you receive the medical treatments, diagnostic tests and medications available to you. We can help you plan your future medical care and make crucial legal end-of-life decisions. Our attorneys can draft legally valid medical documents that ensure your intentions are honored if you become unable to make those decisions for yourself.
Skilled lawyers assisting seniors with estate planning
Our experienced attorneys can advise you on the most successful ways to achieve your estate planning goals. Through meticulous analysis, we guide you on how best to transfer your assets, minimize estate taxes, establish guardianship for minor children, support personal philanthropic causes and even protect a beloved pet. We can draft a will that reflects your desires and establish living trusts and other legal entities beneficial to your estate.
Maintain financial independence with guidance from knowledgeable lawyers
Retirement gives you the opportunity to enjoy family and hobbies, but if not well-planned, living on a fixed income can create financial stress. Our attorneys can help you organize your affairs and plan for your retirement. If you choose to continue working, we are prepared to protect your rights in the workplace.
