Just thinking about estate or Medicaid planning can be overwhelming—not to mention having to initiate sensitive conversations and make tough decisions. Sheldon Mayer, or Shimi, as his clients call him, has focused on the fields of estate planning and elder law since 2012. Clients appreciate his warm and unintimidating manner, as well as his patience and insight into the complexities of law—and into family dynamics. They find his approach puts them at ease, while helping achieve the perspective that will result in the best plan for their situation.

Mr. Mayer began his career in a boutique law firm in Rockland County, New York specializing in trusts, estates and elder law, and is now in private practice. He has a wide range of experience in solving clients’ concerns—be they estate planning, tax issues, asset protection or estate distribution. From basic estates to ones that call for sophisticated techniques, he will work to find the most effective and sensible solution tailored to each client’s situation. Most importantly, Shimi serves as his clients’ trusted advisor. They know that—in addition to helping them make sure their assets are protected during life and their loved ones are taken care of after death—they can rely on him as general counsel to guide them in any legal issue that may arise, connecting them with experts as needed. He is there for his clients throughout the process, including navigating the often-tricky family and succession decisions involved in estate planning. He understands how important it is for families to approach this emotional topic with sensitivity, work out differences harmoniously, and equitably divide a loved one’s assets after death.

Mr. Mayer graduated cum laude in 2011 from Washington University in St. Louis School of Law and earned an LL.M. in Taxation from Washington University in 2012. While in law school, he received the CALI Excellence for the Future Award in Estate and Gift Tax. He resides in Airmont, NY with his wife and children.
