ABOUT AFR

Anthony F. Russo & Associates, P.C. is a family-run law firm specializing in estate, Medicaid and long term care planning for local families in the Nassau, Suffolk and New York City areas.  Our staff of attorneys and social workers are dedicated to taking a personal, hands-on approach to explain, in simple terms, the available options to meet your needs and to provide you with the peace of mind in knowing you have someone to turn to in the future.

Establishing the proper estate plan and planning for long term care are some of the most important actions you can take for yourself and your family during your lifetime. That is why it is so important that you have a trusted advisor to confide in and turn to with your questions, concerns, goals and aspirations for your future and the future of your family.

As a family firm, we understand better than most that our relationship does not end when you finish signing your documents.  When the unexpected happens, we all need someone to turn to without worrying about fees and costs.

This is why, for our clients who created an estate plan with us, we welcome your phone calls, free of charge – even after your documents have been signed.  Maybe you have a question you forgot to ask during our initial meetings.  Maybe you want to talk about a potential change or amendment.  Maybe you or a loved one needs care at home, in an assisted living or in a nursing home.  No matter the situation, we are there for you.  You will have the comfort of knowing your attorney is a phone call away.

After all, we have family too.  And it is our pledge to provide the level of service we would want for our own loved ones.  We take great pride in our ability to service our clients’ various and diverse legal needs. There is no greater honor for us than to be considered your family attorney.
