Dana Bookbinder, Esq.

LAWYER-PROFILES-HIGHRES-BLEEDS-(Page-04)Attorney Dana Bookbinder knows you can never predict the future – but you should prepare for it.
“It can be extremely overwhelming to think about aging, and getting and paying for good care when you’re older. The same thing goes for parents who have a child with special needs and are thinking about their child’s care once mom and dad are older,” says Bookbinder. “Many people push off planning for the future, but if you don’t plan ahead you can have enormous problems.”
Bookbinder’s firm, Bookbinder Law, focuses on estate planning, elder law and special needs planning to help clients meet many of life’s common challenges. Her expertise extends to protecting assets for beneficiaries, addressing the prospect of long-term care expenses, establishing special needs trusts and planning or administering an estate.
“I work one-on-one with every client, and I take the time to listen and understand each family’s financial situation and individual dynamics. Since clients are working with me and not a staff member who might not be familiar with their personal circumstances, they’re not getting cookie-cutter solutions,” says Bookbinder, who has nearly 20 years experience. “I enjoy talking with clients and their families, and this caring, personalized attention allows me to create a plan that meets their goals and provides results for their quality of life and for the lives of their loved ones.”
Bookbinder, who is one of a limited number of attorneys in the country certified by the National Elder Law Foundation, also uses her large network of community resources and professionals like financial advisors, care managers, social workers, accountants and care providers when assisting clients. “I introduce clients to my resources and work alongside their other advisors to ensure they have long-term comprehensive care,” she says. “It’s all about planning for the future my clients want.”
