His elder law practice focuses on Medicaid pre-planning including the use of trusts to assist clients in protecting assets in advance of incurring long-term care expenses.

Through his trusts and estates practice, Mr. Marrone helps families protect, preserve, and efficiently transfer wealth.  He uses the latest tax-savings strategies to avoid or minimize estate, gift and income taxes. This practice also includes the preparation of wills, trusts, health care proxies and powers of attorneys for individuals and families. Additionally, Mr. Marrone provides significant post-mortem planning for executors, trustees and estate fiduciaries, and has handled several will and trust contest proceedings.

Mr. Marrone’s guardianship and special needs planning practice includes guardianship applications for disabled minors and adults, both with mental and physical impairments. Additionally, Mr. Marrone regularly prepares trusts for individuals with special needs and clients receiving large settlements seeking to preserve government benefit eligibility. This practice includes comprehensive representation in any legal proceedings and interfacing with Department of Social Services, Social Security Administration and other government agencies to coordinate benefits.
