We are the New Paltz attorneys, Law Offices of James Yastion, PLLC, and we provide elder care and Medicaid planning to seniors or disabled individuals who require either crisis/emergency Medicaid planning or advanced planning services.


If you or a loved one are entitled to receive government benefits from Medicaid to SSI, you need an experienced attorney to guide you through the process of obtaining the available benefits while sheltering to the extent possible your assets for your own supplemental care and for the benefit of your heirs.

You have worked hard to accumulate your wealth and the onset of old age, dementia or disease should not mean the mandatory dissipation of assets towards nursing home and rising medical costs. There are numerous options available to shelter income and assets for the next generation including irrevocable Medicaid trusts, supplemental needs trusts and gifting strategies.

If you or a loved one is or may become incapacitated and may need long term care, or if you have no plan in place or would like an experienced attorney to review your current plan, call (845) 255-4400 or email james@jgylaw.com to discuss your legal concerns.
