Welcome to the Dutcher & Zatkowsky Website – Rochester NY Elder Law Attorneys
At Dutcher and Zatkowsky, we focus on what is known in legal circles as Elder Law. So what exactly is “Elder Law?” We think of it as a way to prepare seniors and the people who love them for all of the life changes that come with growing older. This can mean helping you plan for a comfortable retirement; ensuring that you will be well cared for in the event of incapacity or disability; protecting your hard-earned assets for your enjoyment today and that of loved ones after you are gone; helping you cope with the confusing Medicaid system; and ultimately, providing you with the peace of mind that comes from knowing you have a plan in place for whatever comes along.
Our partners, Andy Dutcher and Miles Zatkowsky, have dedicated themselves to Elder Law and related practice areas since 1976 and 1981, respectively, and formed their partnership in 1991. The decision to focus on this area of the law was not happenstance. Both Andy and Miles have experienced firsthand the anguish, frustration, soul-searching and doubt that comes with having to place a parent in a nursing home, together with the emotional and financial toll it takes on all members of the family.
As Rochester NY elder law attorneys, we have the legal knowledge to help, and the human capacity to care.
