to help clients plan and pay for long term care.
New York City, NY (PRWEB) November 27, 2006
Cutner & Associates, P.C., a New York City based law firm that focuses on issues of concern to the elderly and disabled, announces the launching of its new website, http://www.elder-law-cutner.com. The firm's new website complements its coverage of Elder Law issues in the Best Elder Law Blog.
David A. Cutner, the founder, stated that the firm's primary goal is "to help clients plan and pay for long term care." He went on to say: "People are living longer today. Many reach a point where they can no longer manage by themselves, or they suffer from a chronic illness or condition such as dementia or Alzheimer's disease. Managing the financial and legal issues that arise can become overwhelming for them and their families, and many fear that they will exhaust their life's savings or lose their home in trying to pay for needed care. An Elder Law attorney can help, and many people will be surprised and comforted to learn that they have very good options."
Mr. Cutner has practiced law in New York City for over 35 years, both in government and in private practice. He started his own firm in 1984, and it continues to this day as Cutner & Associates, P.C.
Although Mr. Cutner had for years been a litigator and corporate lawyer, taking care of his mother in her old age convinced Mr. Cutner that the elderly and disabled needed good advice and representation as much, if not more, than people in the business sector. He felt that he had a lot to contribute as an attorney for the elderly and disabled, and their families. As a result, Mr. Cutner turned his attention to Elder Law, where the firm now focuses its practice.
The attorneys at Cutner & Associates, P.C., bring to their elderly and disabled clients the same rigorous analytical skills and dedication to the task that their business clients enjoyed. Today, Cutner & Associates can be counted on to develop a comprehensive plan for their clients' long term care, and then to implement this plan by preparing all of the necessary documents and by representing their clients before the government agencies involved.
The attorneys at Cutner & Associates, P.C., for many years have been consistently rated "AV" by Martindale Hubbell based upon peer reviews. This rating means that "a lawyer's peers rank him or her at the highest level of professional excellence," and that the lawyer has a very high Ethical Standards rating for "adherence to professional standards of conduct and ethics, reliability, diligence and other criteria relevant to the discharge of professional responsibilities."
Cutner & Associates, P.C., is aware that many clients are rightly concerned about the amount of legal fees they might incur in connection obtaining legal advice and assistance. The firm responds to this concern by providing virtually all of its Elder Law services on a fixed fee basis, and its fee agreements are always set forth clearly in writing. As a result, clients can determine for themselves in advance whether it makes sense for them to proceed with the plan that may be recommended. Cutner & Associates, P.C., believes that clients will find its fees to be very cost-effective.
