Attorneys Serving Seniors, Their Family Members and People with Special Needs
(Melville/Port Jefferson, NY, August 16, 2022) – Cona Elder Law, the award-winning Melville-based firm focused on elder law, estate planning, estate administration, special needs and health care law, announced the opening of its new office in Port Jefferson at 41 North Country Road, across from Mather Hospital.
Cona Elder Law, with five partners and a staff of 35, has long been regarded as a leader in elder law and estate planning by consumers, local business media and regional legal media.
“With a 20-plus year history in Melville, we are excited to bring our elder law and estate planning firm to Port Jefferson. We want to be available and accessible to our clients, including those in East Setauket, Miller Place, Mount Sinai, Rocky Point, and Stony Brook, meeting them closer to their homes and businesses,” said Jennifer Cona, Founder and Managing Partner of Cona Elder Law.
The office will be led by Melissa Negrin-Wiener, Senior Partner at the firm, who concentrates in elder law, Medicaid benefits, estate planning, government benefits eligibility, asset protection and special needs planning.
“As someone who was raised in Smithtown, I am excited to serve my neighbors in our new Port Jefferson office. The attorneys of Cona Elder Law are involved with local organizations and will contribute to the community through educational programs and support of nonprofit groups, as we already do in Melville,” said Negrin-Wiener.
“I am so pleased that Cona Elder Law has taken over the space in our office building after my husband merged his surgical practice with Long Island Laparoscopic Doctors. The fact that Cona Elder Law takes care of older adults and their family members, as well as people with special needs, makes them a perfect fit for our building and the community as well,” said Jenise Craig.
“I am excited to hear that my long-time colleague Melissa Negrin-Wiener and her firm will be working near my hometown in Port Jefferson. Their compassion for clients, passion for the job, experience and expertise in advising clients on Medicaid benefits
and asset protection will be invaluable to the community,” said Joel Gali, Director of Referral Management at Gurwin Jewish Geriatric Center.
In addition to its main Melville office, Cona Elder Law has an office in midtown Manhattan.
