Where do I start?

2017-06-08T20:05:59+00:00

We will help you define your needs, organize your resources, and identify solutions. Then we will recommend and execute a plan. The first step is to give us a call!

What do I bring?

2017-06-08T20:06:19+00:00

At the initial consultation meeting it is not necessary to have all of your documents with you. Prior to the meeting, we will give you a list of the most helpful documents to bring. In particular, it is helpful to have the following:

  • Identification
  • Documentation of family relationships, as relevant
  • Relevant legal documents currently and/or previously in effect
  • Information about your income and assets

Who needs to come to the first meeting?

2017-06-08T20:06:36+00:00

Generally, the initial consultation is an opportunity for us to get to know you and your situation. It is often easiest to do this in a one-on-onemeeting. However, if your specific issue involves a family member or loved one whose presence you feel is necessary, we would be happy to meet with you together.

How much does it cost?

2017-06-08T19:51:36+00:00

We treat each case as unique. Therefore, fees are determined on a case-by-case basis after an assessment of a potential client’s resources and the type of work to be undertaken.

Do I need a will?

2017-06-08T20:06:59+00:00

YES! Everyone needs a  will regardless of finances or age.

A will gives you  control over  what will happen to your belongings  after you go and empowers you to determine  who cares for your loved ones, who might get what, and how your estate will be administered. A will is necessary to avoid probate. Check out the Trusts and Estates section or give us a call!

What type of experience do you have?

2017-06-08T20:07:10+00:00

You would be hard pressed to find anyone who brings the hands-on and corporate experience that I bring to the practice of Health Law, Elder Law, Health Insurance, and Special Needs. In 2009, after thirty years of working in health and insurance law, I founded the Weiss Law Group, PLLC a private law firm.

The issue I’m having isn’t listed among your practice areas, can you help me?

2017-06-08T20:07:18+00:00

Possibly! Although we cannot take on every type of case, if you believe your concerns probably fall within the areas of elder law, health law, or special needs law, chances are we can give you at least minimal guidance. Feel free to give us a call!

Where are you located?

2017-06-21T13:14:07+00:00

Our offices are conveniently located in midtown Manhattan at 1430 Broadway (between 39th and 40th). We  will assist clients who live nearby, as well as those in the greater New York area, New Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsylvania by coordinating our efforts with  other  professionals.

How do I know if I need an attorney?

2017-06-08T20:07:39+00:00

Many times, people have an idea about things like wills or powers of attorney. However, the validity of these types of documents and others may depend on technicalities and details only a lawyer would recognize. There may be options available to you when it comes to caring for a loved one, planning for the future, or managing your current situation of which you’re not even aware! Contact us to schedule an initial consultation and at that time you decide whether you want to proceed.
