New York City Estate Planning Lawyer Serves the Five Boroughs and Beyond

High-quality representation and close, personal attention for elders and their concerned children

The Cormac McEnery Law Firm is here to do good for you and to do it well. The firm focuses on areas of the law that provide safeguards for individuals and families. We help protect your loved ones’ health and welfare by developing plans for retirement, medical care, life assistance, oversight and succession. We facilitate estate settlement issues to spare grieving family members unnecessary frustration and expense. We are grateful to be engaged in meaningful work that benefits so many, and that gratitude shows in the way we greet each client and undertake each task.

Large-scale New York knowledge in relaxed, low-key setting

Although attorney Cormac McEnery got his legal training at a large New York law firm, the ideal of the small-town lawyer serving his community is truer to his nature. In keeping with those values and his own disposition, Mr. McEnery strives to offer highly-professional legal counsel in a welcoming setting. His clients can expect:

  • Experienced counsel — Mr. McEnery has practiced law for more than 35 years. A noted authority on elder law and estate planning, he teaches Continuing Legal Education (CLE) courses for practicing attorneys. You can be confident in his legal knowledge and his ability to represent your interests, even against formidable opposition.
  • Personalized service — Mr. McEnery and his colleagues are amiable and relaxed in their interactions with clients, but strict in their adherence to professional standards for prompt, thorough communication. Phone calls and emails are returned in a timely manner, clients are copied on all correspondence and kept fully informed throughout the legal process.
  • Ethical representation — Mr. McEnery fully appreciates the responsibility of representing clients, such as elders in declining health, who are especially vulnerable. He maintains the highest ethical standards while working earnestly for his clients’ best interests.
  • Knowledgeable and helpful support staff — The importance of experienced and dedicated paralegals cannot be overstated. Our practice benefits from friendly, highly-professional paralegals who have longstanding relationships with the firm and are heavily invested in client satisfaction.

Our firm has three locations, on City Island (Bronx), in Manhattan and in Brooklyn, which allow us to serve all of New York City, as well as Westchester, Nassau and Suffolk counties.

Experienced elder law attorney manages trusts, wills and probate

Many clients come to us because their children, who’ve grown up and left the area, are concerned that their parents have not done enough to protect themselves. Although it’s best to begin estate planning earlier in life, there are still many positive things an elder law attorney can do for seniors who have not been so proactive. We employ a combination of trusts, powers of attorney and healthcare proxies to protect assets and to ensure appropriate medical care within parameters set by our clients. For seniors of moderate means, we can structure assets to qualify them for Medicaid should they require long-term care. For succession purposes, we draft wills and implement inheritance trusts. When the time comes, we are available to assist with probate issues. We understand that these are sensitive topics, and we approach them with the utmost regard for each of our clients.
