Why Choose Us?

At Futterman, Lanza & Pasculli, LLP, you will find a team of caring and compassionate professionals who are committed to providing superior service in a friendly, responsive atmosphere for all families, including the elderly, individuals with disabilities, veterans, and their families. We are proud to help people who need advocacy in critical aspects of their lives, including elder law, Medicaid benefits, veterans’ benefits and estate planning. The firm also handles personal injury and real estate cases, often for our existing elder law and estate planning clients.

Most of our referrals come from previous clients. Because of our vast experience and knowledge, we also receive many referrals from financial professionals, accountants, mental health professionals and administrators from skilled nursing facilities, hospitals and rehab centers. In addition, other attorneys often recommend clients to us when they cannot serve the client’s specific elder law and estate planning needs.

Our Distinct Team Of Attorneys And Staff

Whether you are the one seeking legal counsel, or you are a family member, you will find the help you need at Futterman, Lanza & Pasculli, LLP.  As a firm, we have almost two decades of experience focusing on elder law and estate planning matters in New York, and many of our attorneys have decades of experience in these areas. We also have a law partner who is licensed in Florida, so we may assist clients who are “snowbirds” there. We are known as leaders among our peers, helping to educate other attorneys through articles, blogs, and seminars. In addition, we are accredited to teach social workers and case managers.

You can rely on the knowledge and compassion of our entire team, which includes:

  • 10 attorneys, including two who are also CPAs and two who are certified elder law attorneys (CELA) by the National Elder Law Foundation (NELF)
  • 16 paralegals and support staff team members
  • Licensed social worker
  • Registered nurses
  • Three fully staffed offices in Smithtown, Bay Shore and Garden City

We are diligent about staying ahead of the changes in elder law and related areas so we can best serve our clients and provide them with the support they need.

In our work, we seek creative, compassionate and comprehensive solutions for the short term and long term while taking tax implications, family dynamics and other client concerns into account. You can count on us to look at the whole picture and find the right solutions for your legal needs.

Taking Cases Other Firms Turn Down

With our team’s vast knowledge and experience, we can represent people who have trouble getting legal counsel due to the complexity of their case. We take cases that involve:

  • Clients who may end up in litigation or have court involvement
  • Medicaid, which is an in-house department at the firm
  • Social work advocacy and support for all families including special needs families that often come with complex tax issues
  • Veterans law, which some firms do not accept, yet is a passion of law partner Felicia Pasculli

Because of our experience and wide range of skills, we are pleased to serve clients who have complex legal needs.
