Elder Law & Estate Planning Attorneys

Estate planning and elder law go hand-in-hand. Often, the same strategies and legal documents overlap which is why you need a Rochester, NY, attorney who excels in coordinating both of these practices. Here's how these practices differ:


Estate Planning

Estate planning attorneys assist clients in insuring that their wishes and the distribution of assets are implanted in the most efficient way, including utilizing any and all tax advantages available. Our Rochester, NY, estate planning attorneys will help you plan for disabilities, minimize taxes (including income taxes) at the time of your passing, put a plan together to protect your assets, and much more.  


Elder Law

Elder law attorneys help seniors craft a plan to preserve their assets for use while they are living so they can maintain a quality lifestyle if in-home care is needed, or have enough funds available to be as comfortable as possible should you need nursing home care. Our elder law attorneys can help you plan for how to pay for long-term care without depleting all of your savings.


Ronald J. Axelrod & Associates helps their clients with elder law and Medicaid planning, and estate planning and probate in Rochester, NY – often at the same time.
