Our elder law attorneys are well known for their contributions to the field, taking leadership roles in legal associations and not-for-profit organizations and frequently speaking on elder law. Our attorneys are frequent contributors to the New York State Bar Association’s “Elder Law Attorney” and are active in lobbying the State Legislature on behalf of the elderly and disabled, as well as have authored many periodicals regarding estate and financial planning, health care planning and elder abuse. Steven Schurkman is the author of “Elder Law Q&A: Answers to Questions About Estate and Financial Planning, Health Care Planning and Elder Abuse”, written under a grant from New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services – and now in its 18th edition, which is widely disseminated throughout the state.
