He is dedicated to working with his clients on a personal level and providing them with customized plans that meet their unique needs and goals for long term care and estate planning. Over the years, Eric has learned that the best plans are the result of close collaboration, not only with his clients, but also with other professionals involved in caring for the needs of seniors, special needs adults and children, and veterans. His clients appreciate this approach and consider Eric both a counselor for life and a family friend.

Eric graduated from Cornell University with a Bachelor of Science in Business in 1990. He earned his law degree from Yeshiva University’s Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law in 1994.

This gives him valuable insights into the effects of long-term care expenses on the financial security of his clients and their family members and a unique perspective on how to remedy many of the financial difficulties facing his clients.

Q. My mother has lived with me for 7 years and started to pay me rent and care 5 1/2 years ago after receiving veterans aid
