Craig A. Andreoli, Esq. is the founding partner of the Law Office of Craig A. Andreoli, P.C. located in Islandia, New York, a family owned firm which he operates together with his wife and partner, Christine. The Law Office of Craig A. Andreoli, P.C.’s very personal approach to Elder Law & Medicaid Planning and Estate Planning was developed by Craig after seeing his grandmother suffer from Alzheimer’s disease over a period of 12 years and lose her hard earned life savings to pay for long-term care.
In an attempt to help select families avoid the hardships that his own family suffered, Craig developed a process that structures and implements Medicaid pre-planning, sophisticated gifting and estate tax planning techniques. Clients that have used this process have seen an immediate reduction in stress and family disputes, and an increase in savings and asset preservation. In order to help his clients prepare for the present and the unexpected future, Craig’s practice also focuses on the explanation and implementation of trusts, wills, advanced directives, and the appropriate ownership of real property. Craig emphasizes the importance of protecting assets and ensuring that documents are drawn up to reflect his clients’ wishes. Craig understands the sensitive nature of elder law and estate planning matters and planning for the future. His clients appreciate his gentle nature and ability to explain the law utilizing a plain language approach to ensure an understanding on the part of the clients that is essential to a good working relationship. Craig is dedicated to providing quality legal services to his clients and to treating every client with the utmost care and personal attention he/she deserves.
