RENATA LANDSKIND, a partner in the firm, was born in Kiev, Ukraine and grew up in Manhattan Beach, Brooklyn. After graduating from St. John's University with a Criminal Justice major, she earned a J.D. from Brooklyn Law School. Ms. Landskind specializes in Elder Law, Estate Planning, and Trusts and Estates, and focuses on the Probate and Administration of Complex Estates and Surrogate's Court Litigation. Her legal ability also extends to Asset Protection, Business Planning and Real Estate. Ms. Landskind is particularly experienced in estate planning for high-net-worth individuals, business owners, and real estate investors, whom she guides in the structuring and transfer of property to the next generation through the use of the most efficient and tax-effective methods available. In addition, Ms. Landskind assists clients in applying for and obtaining Medicaid for both in-home care and nursing home while preserving their assets for their heirs.

Ms. Landskind gained valuable Surrogate's Court experience working for the Counsel to the Public Administrator of Kings County for a number of years. Ms. Landskind draws on this expertise as she represents spouses, heirs, trustees, and executors in will and trust contests, accounting proceedings, fiduciary removal actions, kinship proceedings, and the successful probate of lost wills.
