Attorney Ellen Victor focuses on all aspects of business and estate planning including wills and trusts; business formation; asset protection; elder law and long-term care planning; special needs planning; and related practice areas.
After a distinguished career on Wall Street, Ellen earned her law degree from Hofstra University School of Law (cum laude), and worked for a boutique law firm, focusing on corporate and securities law, before founding her own practice.
Ellen’s unique combination of business experience and legal training gives her special insight into the strategies business owners and families need to prosper, protect their assets, and preserve wealth.
As the parent of a special needs child, she is particularly passionate about serving the legal needs of families with disabled children. She serves as a guardian ad litem and attorney to incapacitated persons in guardianship proceedings.
Ellen was instrumental in bringing Special Education PTA to her neighborhood school district, and served on the Board of SEPTA for several years. She assisted in drafting a parent’s guide to special education, interpreting the maze of legal language and regulations, helping to guide them through what can be an intimidating and stressful process.
Ellen also serves as counsel for the Merrick Lions Club Foundation, Inc., and for Purple Heart Pups, a fundraiser established to aid disabled, blind and amputee veterans.
Ellen is admitted to practice in New York.
