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.
Lamson & Cutner provides Elder Law and estate planning services to residents of Manhattan, Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Richmond, Nassau, and Suffolk Counties; and, through its office in Harrison, New York, to residents of Westchester, Rockland, Orange, Putnam, and Dutchess Counties.
What Clients Are Saying
“Thanks so much for all of your excellent guidance and support with getting [our mother] approved for Medicaid, setting up the trust, and guiding us regarding the pooled income trust. . . .
“Many thanks again for all of your work. The help and guidance that you provided us with allowed our mother to live out the last of her days in the home that she loved, and this is what she had always said she wanted.”
The Family of R.G.
"Five stars is really not enough for this firm. My parents engaged a different firm to handle their estate planning and related matters. That experience was nothing short of a horror story.
Lamson & Cutner attorneys were asked to undo the damage. They were unlike any of the other attorneys we've dealt with - kind, caring, compassionate, patient and so much more. We finally felt that we were working with HONEST and trustworthy professionals. They were able to help my parents recover from mistakes made by their prior attorney. They also went to great lengths to ensure that my parents received exactly what they were looking for, and understood every aspect of the process.
Don't bother looking elsewhere! David Cutner and his team are the only attorneys you need to look at for elder-related and estate issues. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!" - Alex Linetski
"The staff and the attorneys did a thorough job in reviewing and advising on my Moms legal needs. They answered all of my questions with patience and kindness. Would highly recommend to anyone. They are the best !! " -Ron Guer
