Elder Law & Special Needs

HDRB&B’s Elder Law & Special Needs practice group advises couples, adult children and families in New York and New Jersey on a range of long-term care issues, with the goal of preserving wealth and assets in the face of long-term care expenses. For elder relatives, we offer guidance to clients on home care, assisted living and nursing home placements, and provide representation for Medicaid applications and appeals, as well as assistance with other government benefits. For parents of children with special needs, we prepare Supplemental Needs Trusts and offer counsel designed to ensure that loved ones with special needs retain critical government benefits. In addition to long-term care planning, HDRB&B handles guardianships in both New York and New Jersey. Our Elder Law attorneys are also well-versed in traditional Trusts and Estates practice, and work to ensure that clients are prepared for the future by having Wills, Trusts, Powers of Attorney, and Health Care Directives in place. We also represent clients in estate administration and estate litigation.
