Pelham NY Elder Law, Guardianship, & Commercial Litigation Attorneys

Rafferty & Redlisky, LLP concentrates in contested guardianship proceedings in Bronx, Kings, Queens, Rockland, Nassau, New York and Westchester Counties. A guardianship petition under Article 81 of the Mental Hygiene Law is brought when a person requires some form of assistance in meeting their personal and property management needs. Most times the situation arises when the AIP either did not have advance directives in place such as a durable power of attorney or health care proxy, or those advance directives are insufficient or being misused by the agent. In the event that a finding of incapacity is made by the court, or upon the consent of the subject party, the court will direct the least restrictive form of intervention which assists them in meeting their personal and property management needs but, at the same time, permits them to exercise the independence and self-determination of which they are capable. We routinely have been appointed as Court Evaluator, Counsel to the AIP, and Guardian in complex and litigated guardianship matters, as a result of our experience, demonstrated ability and caring service to our clients.

Medicaid Planning
As each generation lives longer, planning to ensure loved one receives the care they require and deserve is critical. Not everyone can afford long term health care insurance or pay privately for the cost of care either in the community or in a facility. We can assist you with your planning strategies and work collaboratively with financial planners and accountants to create a comprehensive plan for every financial landscape.

Commercial Litigation
Commercial litigation is an umbrella term that covers a number of distinct business/individual-related issues and disputes, which may include, among other things, defending labor law claims against site safety companies, contract disputes, employment issues, disputes among partners/shareholders, disputes between a homeowner and a contractor/subcontractor, insurer and insured, purchaser and seller of property, and other related disputes. Rafferty & Redlisky, LLP pursues all available remedies from inception through trial, as well as on appeal. We argue vigorously and zealously on your behalf to achieve the best result, always focused on the equitable and most-cost effective means possible.

Business Formation and Contracts
Rafferty & Redlisky, LLP advises clients regarding the advantages and disadvantages of different business forms (e.g., sole proprietorships, partnerships, limited liability companies, subchapter S corporations, corporations, and joint ventures). We also draft all of the necessary documents to maintain a business in good standing under the applicable laws, including but not limited to, corporate by-laws, resolutions, minutes of directors’ meetings, and notices, as well as partnership agreements and LLC operating agreements. We also review and draft most types of business agreements, including purchase agreements, employment and severance agreements, shareholder agreements, license agreements, distribution agreements, royalty agreements, leases, non-competition agreements and confidentiality agreements.
Insurance Defense
If you have been declined coverage and need to know what your rights are under an insurance policy, we can assist by issuing coverage opinions and responding to declaratory judgment actions to determine what is and is not covered.
