As a licensed attorney in Florida, New Jersey and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, a Certified Public Accountant in the States of Florida and New Jersey as well as a holder of the ChFC® and CLU® designations from The American College, Darren has the qualifications, desire and commitment to assist you and your family. Through the personal experiences of his mother dealing with dementia and Parkinson’s; witnessing the effects of his uncle’s Alzheimer’s affliction and its impact on the family; and his sister becoming permanently disabled, Darren became interested in Elder Law and Special Needs Planning. With the onset of dementia and Parkinson’s, Darren’s mother was concerned about ending up in a nursing home and started to “spend down” her assets. This proved to be an unnecessary and wasteful plan as Darren was able to assist his mother in uncovering the fact that she had converted a group long-term care insurance policy upon retirement to an individual policy. That policy enabled the family to help cover a significant portion of the costs incurred prior to her passing.
