Estate planning isn’t about how much money you have. It’s about protecting what you have for you during your life and for those you love after you’re gone. It ensures what you have gets to the people you love, the way you want, when you want. We have dedicated our practice to assisting the elderly and the disabled and their families.


If you were to die or to become disabled today, are you comfortable everything will be taken care of the way you want? Michael B. Cohen & Associates believe that proper planning can greatly enhance benefits for you if you are disabled or your loved ones after death, and should be implemented by everyone. It doesn’t matter if you have $40,000 or $400,000. You still have to plan for the future. Whether it’s to name a guardian for your minor children or ensure your children don’t blow through your assets if you unexpectedly die or become disabled (Terri Schiavo case).
