One of the First Full Service Elder Law Firms in Suffolk County

When Lawrence joined the firm, he redirected it from a general practice to one of the first and most successful Elder Law, Special Needs and Estate Planning firms on Long Island. It is clear law runs in the family but so does compassion, service and planning.
