Berwitz & DiTata LLP Is Fully Operational During COVID-19
We hope this message finds you and your family well during these difficult times. We will continue to be here for you to ensure that your issues and concerns are addressed as smoothly as possible, however we have adjusted how we conduct business in these unprecedented times.
To protect our clients and staff, our office has taken precautions recommended by the CDC and our elected officials. We are engaging in appropriate “social distancing” for our mutual safety and for the benefit of our community. As elder law and estate attorneys on Long Island, we are especially concerned about vulnerable populations, will do all we can to maintain health and safety, and are making every effort to avoid actions that might contribute to the spread of this disease.
We have implemented technology that enables our staff to work from home. While we hope to continue to provide in-person accessibility as needed we are available by telephone and video-conferencing platforms. We welcome calls from both new and existing clients. We will continue to meet your need for high quality legal services while doing our part to “flatten the curve.”
We are available for new and existing clients to answer questions and assist with:
§ Preparation of Wills, Health Care Proxies and Powers of Attorney
§ Creation and Implementation of Trusts
§ Planning for Individuals with Special Needs
§ Asset Preservation and Planning to Minimize Estate Tax Liability
§ Medicaid Eligibility Planning / Preparation of Medicaid Applications
§ Guardianship and the Representation of Guardians
§ Probate and Administration of Estates and Related Litigation

Feel free to contact us with your questions and concerns, especially at this stressful time when health and safety are paramount. If you have a scheduled appointment with our office, please call the office to make alternate arrangements. We will get through this!
Our thoughts are with the individuals and communities that have been directly impacted by the virus, and we will work with our clients and friends to meet all challenges during this period of uncertainty and disruption. We, as a firm, are here to help and support you in any way that we can. Please take care of yourselves and your families!
