Danielle M. Leventhal Elias
Prior to joining Korsinsky & Klein, LLP, Danielle was a partner at an Estate planning and Elder Law firm in Brooklyn, New York and previously a sole practitioner managing her own law practice for 17 years. For the past 21 years, Danielle has focused her practice on a broad range of trust and estate planning services, including wills, trusts, guardianship, probate and estate administration. Her specialization also includes Elder law, Medicaid, long-term care asset protection and high net worth estate tax planning.
Danielle is an Executive Committee member of the New York State Bar Association's Elder Law and Special Needs Section and an active member of the Trusts and Estate Section of the New York State Bar Association and Richmond County Bar Association.
Danielle's interest in this area of the law stems from personal experience of how her work can impact her client's lives by making a difference during their most difficult of times. Danielle grew up watching her mother care for her grandfather for almost 20 years and then Danielle herself became caretaker for her own parents. Through these personal experiences, Danielle witnessed the wisdom that age brings and learned to treasure that special quality of elders. Danielle's work as an elder law and estate planning attorney builds on the life experience of empathy with client needs and a highly developed legal expertise. Danielle couples these two strengths - life experience to empathize with her clients and the legal expertise to serve them - to provide the best Elder Law has to offer.
Danielle takes great pride in her client relationships which combined with her compassion, strong ethics, and legal knowledge enable her to guide and educate her clients through complex legal and long-term care matters. Danielle serves clients in Staten Island, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, Westchester and Nassau County.
Danielle lives with her family in Staten Island, New York. She can often be found with her husband, Jason, cheering on her older son, Colin, on the golf course or her younger son, Aidan, on stage and on the soccer field. Danielle loves spending time with her family enjoying all the fun activities that NYC has to offer, hiking in the beautiful mountains of NY, relaxing on the beach or simply walking with their dog, Peach.
