Donna's practice is focused in the areas of Residential Real Estate, including financing and purchase & sale transactions; Estate Planning and Administration, including preparation of wills, powers of attorney and living wills, and the representation of fiduciaries in the administration of estates and trusts before the Connecticut Probate Courts; Elder Law, including long term care planning, qualification of Title XIX (Medicaid) benefits and issues of incapacity.
Active in the community, Donna began a local radio program, “Older and Wiser,” in September of 2009. This program airs on AM 1490 WGCH every fourth Monday of the month from 12:30-1:00 p.m. (http://www.wgch.com/showarchive/ow.shtml). The program provides the community with basic information on all aspects of elder law, including nursing and home care options, asset protection and preservation, Medicaid (Title XIX) eligibility, options for managing one’s affairs through conservatorships and powers of attorney, and upcoming changes in estate tax laws. Local practitioners in various areas, such as long term care insurance, reverse mortgages and home care, join Donna on the program each week.
