"My family members suffered from both cognitive and physical difficulties related to aging. Having experienced this personally, I appreciate the difficulty families face in addressing and discussing these issues with their loved ones."
Stillman & Associates LLC
I am personally aware of the need to understand and explain the intricacies of Elder Law, Estate Planning, Medicaid Planning and Veterans’ Benefits to clients and their families.
I have had great success in obtaining benefits for clients. Whatever your goal may be, we can assist you in achieving it.

I counsel clients daily on such issues as: Estate Planning, Trusts & Estates (Planning and Drafting), Estate Administration, Medicaid and Veterans’ Benefits Planning. My office will illustrate and explain a wide spectrum of planning options, which allows our clients to choose either an aggressive or a conservative approach towards planning.
Again, my office strives to ensure that all opportunities are utilized and that no legal and/or planning opportunities are missed or overlooked.

"Excellent experience. Trustworthy, extremely knowledgeable and very responsive lawyer."
"I needed an elder care legal expert in the New Haven area. Because of my situation, I needed a timely response.
I left messages with four different law firms after hours. Mr. Stillman's office was the first response in the morning, and within five minutes I was on the phone with Mr. Stillman who immediately provided his counsel and time to deal with the matter at hand.
He created the necessary documents in the morning, met my mother at the Yale Hospital that afternoon to obtain a signature and returned the signed documents later the same day."
