How We're Unique
At the Goidel Law Group, we are dedicated to providing the best possible service and attention to you and your family. We recognize that estate planning and elder law involve difficult issues and discussions regarding disability and death. The planning is sometimes undertaken for the first time when a family member is in crisis. Thus, we strive to eliminate stress and make the process as easy and seamless as possible for you and your loved ones.
Our approach to planning is state of the art, and we believe that planning for potential incapacity is more important than just planning to pass assets at death. In implementing our cutting edge processes, we fully engage you, your family members and other professional advisors (including accountants, financial advisors, insurance professionals, geriatric care managers and social workers). By working together, you receive the best possible service and advice from a dedicated team of individuals with a common purpose — designing and implementing a plan around your stated goals and objectives.
We consistently provide the following services to our clients:
Complimentary and confidential initial consultation.
Three office locations (Melville, Forest Hills and Manhattan) for your convenience. For clients who are unable to meet at any of these locations, we will meet at your office, advisor’s office, residence (whether it be your private home, assisted living facility, nursing home or hospital) or another mutually convenient location. Our state of the art Melville office also affords clients and their out of town family members the ability to meet via video conferencing.
Return of phone calls within 24 hours.
Use of unique systems and processes designed to ensure that your legal documents are completed within 60 to 90 days of our engagement.
Concierge Care Coordination® process integrating care needs with legal planning.
TLC™ Maintenance Program designed to ensure that your estate plan will never become outdated or stale. Changes in your family (birth, death, divorce or marriage of any beneficiary or agent), your health, your finances and the laws (tax and Medicaid) may require you to revise your estate planning documents. You can be proactive by becoming a member of our annual TLC™ Maintenance Program.
"What I thought would be a stressful, anxiety ridden experience in making out an estate plan turned into a very pleasant experience. Wendy was fantastic. She was very professional and knowledgeable yet warm and compassionate."
