Helping Families Preserve Wealth
Now and for the Future

As the lead New York City Estate Planning Attorney with the Firm of Ronald Fatoullah & Associates, I am committed to working hard to preserve your assets and protect your family.

With offices in Great Neck, Forest Hills, and Brooklyn, New York, my Firm handles hundreds of Medicaid applications, and has considerable proficiency in these areas. Called an "Ardent Advocate for Senior Citizens' Rights" by a national news reporter, I am currently serving on the executive committee of the Elder Law Section of the Nassau State Bar Association, where I also chair its Legislative Committee. I was named a "Fellow" of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, where I chaired its Public Policy Committee. While serving on the Public Policy Committee, I was invited to Washington to meet with Former President Clinton to discuss policy issues regarding senior citizens. I am also the immediate past chair of the Legal Committee of the Alzheimer's Association, Long Island Chapter, and am Certified as an elder law attorney by the National elder Law Foundation, the only organization accredited by the American Bar Association to offer certification in the area of elder law.

The New York City Estate Planning Attorneys of Ronald Fatoullah & Associates advise senior citizens and their families about the numerous and complex legal aspects of aging, including:

  • Medicare and Medicaid
  • Estate Planning
  • Asset Protection
  • Special Needs Trusts (for children and disabled persons)
  • Wills
  • Trusts
  • Guardianships
  • Nursing Home Matters
  • Probate

Estate planning is a process to consider alternatives for, to think through, and to set up legally effective arrangements that would meet your specific wishes if something happens to you or those you care about. Good estate planning is more than just a simple will. Estate planning also typically minimizes potential taxes and fees, and sets up contingency planning to make sure your wishes regarding health care treatment are followed. On the financial side, a good estate plan coordinates what would happen with your home, your investments, your business, your life insurance, your employee benefits (such as a 401K plan), and other property in the event you became disabled or if you die. On the personal side, a good estate plan includes directions to carry out your wishes regarding health care matters, so that if you ever are unable to give the directions yourself, someone you select would do that for you.
