Lawrence’s twenty year career within the field of trusts and estates runs the gamut of serving individual and institutional clients with personal estate planning, wealth preservation, estate and tax issues, Surrogate’s Court proceedings, contested proceedings, charitable giving planning as well as elder law considerations, including guardianship, Medicaid planning and planning for people with disabilities. Because of his level of experience, Lawrence brings a degree of sophistication and sensitivity in working with families in their time of need. Lawrence is admitted to the practice of law in both New York and Florida; he is also admitted to practice before the United States Tax Court, and the United States District Court for both the Eastern and Southern Districts. A graduate of New York University, Leonard N. Stern School of Business, he received his law degree from the Yeshiva University Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law where he served as Managing Editor of the Cardozo Arts and Entertainment Law Journal. He is also a member of the New York State Bar Association, City Bar of New York, Westchester Bar Association and NAELA (National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, Inc.)
I hired Lawrence to handle a probate matter in New York. Lawrence was called in to complete the matter after my prior attorney could not complete the assigned tasked. Lawrence is very patient and very through. He went over the entire process with me, explained next steps and guided me and my family throughout. Like many families we do not all get along, Lawrence was able to work the problem and complete the shared goal of completing the probate process. He resolved issues, kept an open line of communication with everyone and worked quickly to the stated goal. When one family member refused to cooperate, Lawrence reached out and talked rationally with her and was able to keep that one person in line. This was my first experience with the probate process and working with Lawrence and his partner Adina Lewis was a real pleasure. They have my gratitude and thanks and my recommendation.
