NEW JERSEY LIFE CARE
PLANNING LAW FIRM
At Norris McLaughlin, we help families facing aging, illness, and disability. We take the time to learn about our clients and tailor our services according to your needs and goals. We then create individualized plans to give you peace of mind. By focusing on our clients’ goals, we help you plan holistically for both the unexpected and the inevitable. We are the only law firm in Northern New Jersey with a team comprised of attorneys, a geriatric social worker, paralegals, and public benefit specialists. Our focus on proactive planning allows our clients to better prepare for the road that lies ahead. We accomplish this through estate planning, asset preservation, and life care planning. We also undertake litigation to ensure our clients’ interests are protected.
Our group is at the forefront of the innovative interdisciplinary practice model of life care planning, which combines traditional estate planning and asset protection with healthcare advocacy and proactive planning. The group is led by Shana Siegel, a certified elder law attorney (CELA), who has the crucial combination of incisive analysis, legal expertise, and compassion that allows her to guide families through stressful times. Norris McLaughlin will provide you with the resources, support, and guidance you need to make decisions with confidence.
My family and I met with Shana Siegel and a member of her staff, Lori Kayne (Care Coordinator, Social Worker), to help us find the best nursing care unit for my husband. I cannot thank Shana Siegel and her staff enough for seeing us through this emotional time.
My parents used Norris McLaughlin Elder Care and Special Needs Law to complete their legal affairs over the past few years. When they considered putting their house in a trust, the staff patiently explained the options and allowed them time to consider all of them. I would recommend the firm to anyone who is in the need of estate planning.
“Ms. Siegel visited the home of my parents under difficult circumstances and demonstrated compassion when meeting disabled family members while ensuring the protection of their legal needs. I have nothing but praise and appreciation for Ms. Siegel, her attorneys, paralegals and staff.”
