Biography

Michael Ettinger is the Author of "Elder Law Estate Planning" and has been practicing Elder Law Estate Planning since 1991. With twelve attorneys and 25 staff members Ettinger Law Firm is New York's largest Elder Law Estate Planning Firm. We provide free consultations for Revocable and Irrevocable Living Trusts, Medicaid Asset Protection Trusts, Medicaid Applications, Special Needs Trusts, Probate, Estate Administration, Estate Tax Planning and all other areas of Elder Law Estate Planning.
Always friendly and personable, our staff will make you feel at ease with whatever issues you are facing and we are happy to give you our advice without cost or obligation. We believe the client should be in charge and you will always be fully informed before you decide on any course of action and before any fees become payable.
At your free consultation you will also get a free copy of attorney Ettinger's book which will answer many if not all of your questions.
Our trademarked process makes sure your plan will work when you need it. We track all of our plans for law changes so that if there is a law change that affects your plan you will be informed. We publish an award-winning weekly newsletter for our clients and we invite all of our clients and their next of kin to breakfast every two years to update you on the law and the law firm that is monitoring your plan. Finally, we review your plan free of charge every three years for any changes in your health, your assets, or your family (births, deaths, marriages, divorces, etc). With these programs we ensure that an Ettinger Law Firm plan will work when you need it.
