It's never too early—or too late— to start planning for your future.

Elder Law

If you are either facing or enjoying retirement you need the help of experienced legal counsel to ensure you have taken all the necessary steps to protect your life savings from the cost of long term care and, if applicable, estate taxes.

Medicaid Planning And Nursing Homes

Wills, Trusts And Estates

With decades of experience in estate law, our attorneys are adept in executing strategies that minimize taxes so that your assets are maximized.

Guardianships

When one is no longer able to handle his or her personal and financial affairs, a legal proceeding where a person is appointed to handle the affairs of the incapacitated person may be necessary. Our attorneys are experienced practitioners in Guardianship proceedings, both in the Supreme and Surrogate’s Courts of New York.

Special Needs Planning

Our lawyers guide clients through the complex world of estate planning for family members with special needs. Understanding the needs of a special needs loved on is an essential part of our planning.

Would your hard-earned savings be drained and your family’s financial security be in jeopardy?

Losing all of your savings to pay for nursing home care or home health care is not inevitable, if you plan now. The experienced elder care attorneys of Enea, Scanlan & Sirignano, LLP, can help you secure your future and your family’s financial stability.

  • Is my estate and elder law planning up to date?
  • Have I done any asset protection planning?
  • Do I have a durable general power of attorney with broad asset protection planning powers?
  • Who will administer my estate?
  • When I pass away, what happens if my children don’t agree with the will I have in place?
  • Do I have an appropriate health care proxy and living will?

At Enea, Scanlan & Sirignano, LLP, our experienced elder law attorneys are passionate about helping people of all ages with their wills, retirement strategies, Medicaid concerns and nursing home planning.
