About Us

As a New York Elder Law firm, Lamson & Cutner focuses on protecting clients’ money, property, and income, so they don’t have to spend everything down to pay for health care, particularly for long-term care.   We assist clients in obtaining the care they need, in many cases by helping them become eligible for Medicaid.  Lamson & Cutner’s focus on health care and asset protection goes hand-in-hand with creating effective estate plans for the firm’s clients.

While Lamson & Cutner’s primary focus is on planning, the firm won’t hesitate to go to bat for its clients when they need a strong advocate. Whether the problem is a bank refusing to recognize a valid power of attorney, a financial institution selling an inappropriate investment, or Medicaid making an improper demand for a spousal contribution, Lamson & Cutner will zealously defend its clients’ interests.

What Clients Are Saying

When my father became ill, he was not prepared for the complexity of Medicaid rules. He had previously not done any planning and I was concerned that the fruits of his halve century of work would be quickly dissipated. My family received a recommendation to contact the Law Firm of Lamson & Cutner. I thought it might be too late, but we are fortunate to have contacted them. From the initial contact to the final conclusion Lamson & Cutner displayed expertise, commitment, and compassion. My father's case was unique and complicated (as are many) by a variety of factors. However Lamson & Cutner was able to provide solutions that involved trust creation, Fair Hearing preparation, and negotiations. The services provided helped allow my family to concentrate on Dad's medical needs. We highly recommend the elder law firm of Lamson & Cutner.

...they sat down with me over a period of weeks and worked through the process of getting the help I sought and assistance I needed that had eluded me for so long. I found them to be not only professional, but very concerned and caring. This meant a lot to me. In a few months we were able to get the answers I had been searching for over a period of years without results... I would recommend the firm of Lamson & Cutner, P.C. to anyone who is disabled and/or elderly or has a family member in need of assistance. Doing it on your own is difficult if not impossible, as I found out the hard way and lost a lot of years that I can never get back...They turned a very negative experience into a positive opportunity to set my affairs straight and get my life moving forward in the right direction... I feel truly blessed.

My 89 year old mom fell and broke both shoulders and one was dislocated. The hospital would only let my mom stay a few days. We had to quickly find a rehabilitation facility and start to put her affairs in order. David Cutner was a wealth of information and guided my family through what needed to be done and worked with us until we had our mom home and home care set up for her. She just turned 90 and is doing extremely well. We could never have handled this ourselves nor have gotten to this point without all the hard work of David Cutner and his staff.
