Protecting Senior Rights Proudly
Every elderly person deserves a life of autonomy, dignity and respect. This includes receiving appropriate care and the satisfaction of passing down assets to loved ones as much as possible. The best way to protect the rights of family members or to advocate for an aging loved one is to work with a reputable elder law firm.
Our Community Service
Leavitt Kerson & Sehati shows its devotion to the Queens elderly community through our tradition of community service. Notably, our late senior partner, Benjamin Shaw, started our practice in 1947 and helped found Sunnyside Community Services senior center in West Queens in 1974. SCS has expanded into an important multi-purpose social service agency with which our form remains closely associated. We often present free financial planning lectures, including at Caring Kind- the Heart of Alzheimer’s Caregiving.
