Many people mistakenly defer estate and asset preservation planning until a parent or spouse suffers a catastrophic illness or requires nursing home care. This unnecessarily causes an overwhelming crisis situation which can and should be avoided. 

At McHugh and Macri, we provide help and guidance for individuals and families in these circumstances and in all aspects of elder law. Don McHugh and Vince Macri are two of only 425 attorneys nationwide who are certified by the National Elder Law Foundation as certified elder law attorneys. From their office in East Hanover, New Jersey, they represent clients throughout New Jersey and help them avoid becoming impoverished due to the costs of long-term care. 

Don McHugh and Vince Macri have, during their 38 years of practice, helped and protected the interests of those in need. Since 1992, they have focused their practice on elder and disability law to assist clientele who are 55 and older with pre/post retirement, estate, tax and asset preservation planning, probate and will administration and litigation , including drafting of wills, power of  attorneys and health care directives and to avoid or minimize death and inheritance taxes.

Medicaid planning and the filing of Medicaid applications are often beyond the capacity of individuals, and the “system” counts on the elder applicant giving up. To attain public benefits, you must employ a professional who is familiar with this area of the law. Since 1992, we have counseled and represented clients to successfully attain the benefits they are legally entitled to receive.

McHugh and Macri also provide guidance to families who have recently lost a loved one by our pioneer program to “Probate/Administer it yourself,” which offers “limited" legal representations at substantial cost savings to families who are willing to share the duties of estate administration.  

McHugh and Macri credentials include: Don McHugh and Vince Macri have each attained the highest  and most coveted legal ranking of AV in both ethics and expertise by Martindale Hubbell; both are Certified Elder Law Attorneys and VA accredited attorneys; active members of the National Academy of Elder Law; Don McHugh served as the 2005 chair of the 500 member Elder Law section of the New Jersey Bar Association and is a nominated member of the Council of Advanced Practitioners (CAP) and a moderator/instructor of fellow attorneys for the Institute of Continuing Legal Education of the NJ State Bar Association. Both Don and Vince are recognized to be within the top 5% of the elder law attorneys in New Jersey by their “Super Lawyer” rankings by New Jersey Monthly from 2008 through 2011. With these credentials, they are fully capable of providing the guidance needed for families in this area of the law.  

The time the plan for the future is now. At McHugh and Macri, we can help you prepare for the future without sacrificing quality care or risking financial impoverishment due to long-term healthcare costs. We offer a “fee free” attorney consultation to determine if our services will benefit you. Our motto for all of our families is to “Preserve your assets…Without losing control."
