A member of the New York Bar since 1980, Michael Ettinger has been devoted exclusively to elder law estate planning since 1991. And with good reason. “Elder law estate planning is one of the most professionally satisfying areas of law”, says Ettinger. “When done properly, it can give clients an enormous sense of gratification and peace of mind. By emphasizing trusts, rather than wills, we help clients preserve and protect their assets from the expense and delay of probate while at the same time making sure that everything is not lost to nursing home expenses and taxes.”

Mike’s experience in estate planning and elder law has helped him build a successful practice, as President of Ettinger Law Firm, with nine office locations throughout New York State. Michael Ettinger is an author in respected legal publications, such as the New York State Bar Journal, and has published over sixty articles on estate planning and elder law subjects. He currently serves as a contributor to the bestselling book, Understanding Living Trusts, published by Schumacher, and recently authored “Ettinger on Elder Law Estate Planning”, available on Amazon.com. Mr. Ettinger is a member of a number of professional associations, including the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys and the New York State Bar Association and was a Founding Member of the American Academy of Estate Planning Attorneys, a Charter Member of ElderCounsel, a Founding Member of The American Academy of Special Needs Planning, and is a Partner Member of ElderCareMatters.com - America's National Directory of Elder Care / Senior Care Resources for Families. He is also the past President of the American Association of Trust, Estate and Elder Law Attorneys.

Born and raised in Montreal, Canada, Michael Ettinger received two law degrees, one in French Civil Law and the other in English Common Law from McGill University in Montreal. There he graduated with honors and was named University Scholar. After law school, he obtained his Master of Laws degree from the London School of Economics in 1978. Michael has three children, Ian, Zoe and Cameron, and resides in Rhinebeck, New York.
