Testimonials - Genser Cona Elder Law


Marcus completed the work on the administration of my parents' trust; he was wonderful to work with and I am pleased with the outcome. I want to thank you for your guidance last summer which allowed me to get peace of mind at a difficult time. Switching to your law firm was the right course to take and I appreciate that you facilitated this.

They took my call, spent time with me on the phone when I was at a cross-roads with my mom’s healthcare coverage decisions. They saved me from handing over her income to the nursing home and were able to provide my mother with the best care and comfort as she deserved! Kind and professional staff! I can't say enough good things about this firm in one review.

Partner Melissa Negrin-Wiener has consistently demonstrated outstanding technical expertise combined with excellent judgment and a caring and compassionate demeanor. I'd highly recommend Melissa and her colleagues at Genser Cona Elder Law to anyone seeking a caring, compassionate and expert group of Elder Care attorneys for their legal needs.

Jeffrey Z.

Thanks to you and your great firm for all the help. Mom's last several years were good ones, in a large part, to the work done by you and your team.

Genser Cona Elder Law has been my family’s go-to law firm for all elder care and estate planning issues for over 7 years now. In 2011, my father was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease. A family friend referred us to Melissa Negrin-Wiener and she guided us though an extraordinarily difficult and emotional time. Melissa and the Genser Cona firm helped us navigate through complicated financial decisions and ultimately got us approved for Community Medicaid that allowed us to get round the clock home health care for my dad until his passing in 2014.

Since then, Melissa and all of the professionals at the Genser Cona firm have continued to advise my family on trusts and estates issues and have always been responsive, knowledgeable, and strategic in their approach. I cannot say enough about the attention and care we have received from the Genser Cona firm. Knowing that they are in our corner gives my entire family great comfort and ease of mind.

Best experience we've had with a lawyer -- and we've had many. My family has been involved in a protracted Guardianship for my mother, which has been frustrating and stressful especially when dealing with courts and other lawyers who don't know what they are doing. We were referred to Genser Cona Elder Law to help sort things out. They are true Pros. They created a strategy and within a few months not only had the Guardianship been settled, but Estate planning, POA, Healthcare Proxy, etc, were also now in order. They went above and beyond -- I'm not sure where we would be today if we were not fortunate enough to meet Genser Cona Elder Law. Our family couldn't be more pleased with this firm.

I have had the pleasure of working with this law firm for many years. Not only are they extremely talented legal advocates they put their hearts into their work. Genser Cona Elder Law is a visionary firm and they are always on the lookout for ways to give back to their audience. Not your everyday firm for sure. Keep it up guys, Long Island thanks you.

Melissa Negrin-Weiner worked with me and my family a few years ago as our Elder Lawyer. She was very helpful and compassionate with my Mom & Dad.

Michelle F.

I worked with Partner Melissa Negrin-Wiener. Her kindness and consideration during a difficult time was truly unbelievable. She took the time to make me feel assured and comfortable. I recommend Genser Cona Elder Law to friends and colleagues regularly because I know they will go above and beyond with every client.

Over the years, Melissa, a thoughtful, patient and compassionate attorney, guided me during a difficult time in my life in seeking the best care for my husband. I was able to select the assisted care living facility that best suited his needs and, years later, she helped with the Medicaid process of getting him into a nursing home. In addition, she set up all of the documents I needed for myself, such as a will, power of attorney, health care proxy, living will and trust.

Melissa guided me throughout the years and I have never regretted any decisions I made. She continues to be there whenever I feel I need her.

I have never met anyone with such a deep desire to help elders. Her compassion is limitless. I could never have gotten through the past 16 years without her. I am so very grateful for all she has done for me and recommend her and her law firm to everyone I meet.

As a retired attorney who formerly worked in the elder law field, I chose Genser Cona Elder Law for their reputation and they did not disappoint. My husband and I went to update our estate planning documents and worked with Marcus O'Toole. He was knowledgeable and very patient with us as we kept fine tuning a complicated trust he created for us. He kept us informed along the way as to the progress he was making and he responded timely to our questions and comments. We attended an informative program offered by the firm about senior living options and learned a great deal. I can confidently recommend them.

Lesley D.

I contacted Genser Cona Elder Law regarding my mother's estate planning. Not only did I find them professional and thorough, I was extremely pleased with how they interacted with my mother. I found them attentive to her needs and thoughts and explained things to her in an easy to understand manner. I would most certainly use them again.

Kathleen C.

I am so impressed with your firm’s attentiveness throughout the VA process.

Hon. Joseph L.

I would like to thank you {and Ken}, for an amazing presentation. I listened to countless webinars, and I must say that yours was the best ever. You were extremely informative, the slides were explained in detail (which most times the presenters read from, instead of elaborating and explaining them), the session was flowing and the entire experience was fantastic.

Miriam U.

Just wanted to let you all know that we enjoy receiving the Newsletters from Genser Cona Elder Law. You really are an excellent organization for Elder law.

Anasasia A.

Your firm is so kind and thoughtful about getting updated information out to Geriatric Professionals!

Loretta A.

I am so very grateful to all at Genser Cona Elder Law for your Senior Dreams Come True Program. It is so refreshing to see that your firm is not looking to just receive payment for any/all services provided but that you truly have the light within your souls to consider that perhaps there is a low-income senior out there that could feel {your} kindness and compassion by simply reaching and asking……you have pulled my heartstrings.

Fanchea P.

The staff is knowledgeable about what they do for young and old, especially reminding the young to prepare for getting older. Everyone is very personable, caring, right there when you have a need or a question. I would recommend them to handle any legal work.

Bonnie K.

The team at Genser Cona Elder Law creates a supportive environment when planning and executing the challenging decisions involved with aging. They patiently listen, offer advice, help formulate a plan and efficiently deliver a legal framework that provides security and peace of mind for their clients. The attorneys and support staff are always a friendly phone call away. Genser Cona Elder Law is the navigator everyone needs as they explore the challenges of estate planning and long-term health needs.

Kathie Y.

I would like to thank Melissa Negrin-Wiener for all of her professional efforts in getting my mother approved for Medicaid. Everything she outlined in my initial consultation was delivered. Whether it was Ms. Cavanagh, Ms. Frazier, or Ms. Negrin-Wiener, I never felt a lack of confidence. Anytime I had a question I was answered with professionalism and confidence.

Mario C.

Thank you to all for achieving an executed document. My compliments to you for the understanding of our complex financial issues and your manner of presentation.

Mark P.

If every law firm was like yours, lawyers would never have a bad name.

Steve V.

I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed and appreciated your two recent webinars. A number of years ago, Melissa Negrin-Wiener set up my mother’s affairs, and thanks to her efforts, I was able to fulfill my promise to her, and she lived out her life in her own home, despite her dementia. The time is coming for me to put my own affairs in order, and I will be contacting Melissa in the near future for planning. Thank you for the work you are doing.
