Elder law, including Medicaid planning, is one of the fastest growing areas of the law and another in which Hallock & Cammarota, LLP practices. Providing for the client's well-being while preserving wealth, however modest, for the next generation within federal and state laws is the primary objective of that area of practice.

We assist our clients in processing Medicaid applications and accompany them through every phase of the process. We also handle guardianship applications for minors and incapacitated individuals.

We subscribe to the view of the Honorable Lawrence Bracken of the New York Supreme Court who stated: “No agency of the government has any right to complain about the fact that middle-class people confronted with desperate circumstances choose voluntarily to inflict poverty upon themselves when it is the government itself which has established a rule that poverty is a prerequisite to the receipt of government assistance in the defraying of the costs of ruinously expensive, but absolutely essential, medical treatment.”
