About Us

Schanker and Hochberg, P.C. is a premiere Estate Planning and Estate Administration law firm with more than 30 years of experience in all aspects of estate planning, including gift tax and estate tax planning, business succession planning, estate administration, probate, and Elder Law. Our Elder Law practice includes guardianship procedings, pre-planning for medicaid applications and planning for people with disabilities. While there are many firms capable of designing an estate plan and developing well-written documents, the Schanker and Hochberg difference is an understanding that drafting well-written documents is not nearly enough for the proper estate plan. We have distinguished ourselves by providing services to all of our clients that go well beyond document drafting, to provide tangible results. Schanker and Hochberg clients are instilled with the confidence that they have done everything possible to preserve their families’ wealth, both during and after their lifetimes.

The trust we develop with our clients results in strong, long-term relationships. Our practice has grown entirely by referrals from grateful clients, as well as from accountants, bank trust officers, investment and life insurance agents, and other members of the legal profession who recognize our expertise and dedication to our clientele. We continually develop that trust by providing a comprehensive range of effective services – offerings that evolve and grow to meet ever-changing laws and the needs of those we serve.

We understand that the complexities of planning include personal and familial relationships, personal values and business interests. By keeping current with all legal and tax issues as they evolve, we identify opportunities for you; by working closely with you and your trusted advisors (including life insurance professionals, financial advisors and accountants), we ensure that the plan we help you develop is the most prudent for your needs. Outstanding client service and our everlasting commitment to excellence are the cornerstones of our practice and our promise to you.
