Accessible Elder Law Attorney in Staten Island, New York
Helping seniors with their legal needs
Your golden years afford you the opportunity to relax, spend time with your family and focus on your personal interests. By handling your legal concerns, the Law Office of Gina-Marie Reitano helps you to enjoy this special time in your life. For 27 years, I have assisted seniors with their unique legal issues, including:
A lawyer dedicated to seniors’ healthcare and financial issues
Your health and quality of life depend upon access to good medical care. I can assist you in maneuvering through the frustrating red tape of Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance companies to ensure you receive the medical care and medications you need. I will address your concerns about your future medical care and assist you in ensuring that you are able to receive all financial assistance to which you may be entitled. With proper planning, there is no reason you should have to use your funds to pay for nursing home care. I can guide you through the options and assist you in making the decisions that are right for you. I can draft legal documents that will completely avoid the need for costly guardianship proceedings and allow for the management of your property if you become incapacitated. I can help you appoint someone to make valid medical choices that make certain your intentions will be honored if the time comes when you are no longer able to make these decisions for yourself.
A compassionate lawyer guiding seniors through estate planning
Often one of the most pressing concerns facing seniors is the care and security of their families upon their death. After attentively listening to your wishes, I carefully analyze your estate and advise you on how best to transfer your assets, minimize estate taxes, establish guardianship for minor children, support personal philanthropic causes and even protect a beloved pet. I can draft a will that reflects your desires and establish living trusts and other legal entities beneficial to your estate.
Going the extra mile to protect seniors’ rights
Seniors are often the target of unscrupulous con men and abusive caretakers. If you are the victim of a financial scam, nursing-home negligence or domestic violence, I can help. I will first make sure you are in a safe place, and I will then pursue all available legal means to safeguard your well-being and dignity.
