Upon speaking with our experienced estate planning paralegal or elder law attorney your initial Estate Planning Consultation may be scheduled. This is a very important step in any estate planning, medicaid planning, asset protection or elder law planning process. Call Today at (718) 333-2394, chat with us online or fill out the form on this webpage.
During the Initial Consultation at our office, your entire estate plan needs and goals will be discussed directly with our Principal Attorney. It is important that there is a good rapport between attorney and the client as estate planning cases are fact-specific and extremely personal.
