At Ronald E. Stiskin & Associates, the areas of law we practice are not just our business; they’re our passion. Why? Because we have walked in your shoes.

Special Education Law

Our special education lawyers collectively have decades of experience working in and navigating the New York City and State special education systems. We understand how parents need to advocate for their children. And when you need help to advocate effectively for your child, you want the most skilled and knowledgeable counselor at your side.

Special Needs Planning

When you have a child, parent, or other family member with special needs, you also need to plan for the long term. We have personal experience in long-term planning for a disabled child. We know the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your child’s or other loved one’s future is provided for, even when you are no longer here to look after their needs yourself.

Estate Planning

We have helped plan for our own aging parents. Will they get the long-term care they need when they need it? Will their interests be protected should they become unable to manage their own affairs? Will their wishes for the disposition of their property be carried out? Will their assets be protected in the long term? These are issues we have personally dealt with.

Immigration Law

Our associate Janice S. Edwards is a Canadian practicing law in the U.S. As a foreign national, Janice understands the immigrant experience first hand.

Matrimonial and Family Law

Property Law

Criminal Law

Civil Litigation

Matrimonial and family law, property law, criminal law, civil litigation – we have years of experience in all these areas.

Who We Are

We are: parents, children, spouses, homeowners. Immigrants, business people, entrepreneurs. School administrators, counselors, caregivers for aging parents and special-needs children. We have been where you are now.

We walk in your shoes.™

“My husband and I recently made use of Ronald Stiskin’s services to draw up wills, Powers of Attorney, Health Care Proxies, and a Special Needs Trust. Mr. Stiskin is the consummate professional. He took our needs as seriously as those of people with much larger, more complicated estates, paying careful attention to each detail. He scheduled meetings around our time schedule, rather than expect us to work around his office hours.  He was recommended to us by a friend. We will be recommending his services to our friends, relatives, and colleagues.”
