Elder Law

Elder Law is a complex area of law encompassing asset protection, Medicaid planning, estate planning, estate administration, tax planning, guardianships and more.  We seek to preserve your assets and protect your family. That is our focus and our goal -- whether your concern is estate planning, Medicaid benefits or tax planning.

Our attorneys offer the experience and expertise to counsel clients in all matters of concern to older adults and their loved ones, including those of a non-legal nature, such as insurance, housing, long-term care, and retirement. Our extensive database of eldercare industry colleagues includes professionals and non-legal resources and services available publicly and privately to meet your needs.  We are always accessible to discuss the variety of issues which arise as we age and as we care for loved ones.

The experienced attorneys at Cona Elder Law will help you create a plan for your future so you can spend more time enjoying life's most precious moments.

Medicaid Planning

Medicaid planning is the strategic process of preserving your assets by helping you become eligible for Medicaid benefits for nursing home care, home health care aides or other benefits in the community. Our goal is to help you secure the best healthcare and long-term care solutions without depleting your hard-earned assets that you may wish to pass on to your children or other beneficiaries. At Cona Elder Law, our Medicaid planning attorneys will help you plan for your future and attain your goals.

A guardianship is a powerful legal tool designed to help families protect a loved one who has become incapacitated or who has special needs. If a loved one cannot make financial or health care decisions for themselves, they may require the appointment of a Guardian.

The experienced guardianship attorneys at Cona Elder Law will help you assess whether a guardianship proceeding is the best course of action for you and your family. We have compassionately guided many of our clients through the process of obtaining guardianship in New York, and we'll do the same for you.

Advance Directives

Advance directives are documents wherein you appoint trusted agents to make financial and medical decisions for you in the event you are unable to do so. These essential documents are called "advance" because you're establishing instructions for the future for someone else to follow in the event you're no longer able to express your wishes.

While it may be a difficult topic to discuss, it's important for you to document your preferences and wishes for the future. At Cona Elder Law, we'll help you create and discuss your advance directives with your loved ones.
