Jonathan Ritter, Esq. 

Attorney

After graduating law school in 2007, Jon opened his own general practice law firm. Learning as he went, he gained invaluable experience in a variety of different areas of law. Spending most of his days in court, he began to feel beaten down by the adversarial nature of his work. Jon soon realized that a lot of the contentious work he was doing was in sharp contrast with his personality style.

With his father and brother operating a full-service tax preparation and accounting business, Jon received countless referrals for estate planning and elder law services through them. With these clients, Jonathan always felt there was nothing more rewarding than helping individuals and families through difficult times or giving them an enormous sense of gratification and piece of mind that their affairs were in order. It was at this time that Jon decided to give up everything else and dedicate his entire practice to focus on estate planning and elder law.

Jon grew up in Rockland County where he currently resides with his wife and three young children. His wife, also a Rockland native, teaches elementary school in the County. Jon is passionate about helping families throughout the Lower Hudson Valley region and treats every client like his only client. Whatever your needs may be, from drafting a simple will or power of attorney, to assisting with more complex matters such as Medicaid planning, Jon will make sure you leave his office with a sense of relief and satisfaction.

Jon is licensed to practice law in New York, Florida, and Massachusetts, and is a member of the New York State Bar Association’s Trusts and Estates Law section and Elder Law and Special Needs section. He is also a member of Wealth Counsel and Elder Counsel, and is a graduate of the Elder Law College.
