Helping You Decide What Is Right For You And Your Family

Caring Advocacy For Over 40 Years

When you want to ensure your family’s security and well-being for the future, you can come to my firm, Timothy J. Curtiss, P.C. I am a New York licensed attorney who has been serving the people of Westchester County, Putnam County and Dutchess County for 46 years. I primarily practice in elder law, estate planning and real estate. My goal is to help clients and their families with the most sensitive and personal legal services that they need.

I understand how challenging it can be to help a loved one who is in their twilight years and the difficulty of considering your own mortality. That is why I take a caring and empathetic approach to all my clients and treat you as a person, not a case file. As a veteran who served during Vietnam, I am especially proud to continue serving my community with my legal skills.

My passion for helping you protect your family and future is matched only by my passion for cycling. Cycling isn’t just a hobby. I am an avid cyclist. I get out and ride a number of times during the week with my friends. The physical and mental challenge of riding is what brings out my competitive nature and it’s that drive that keeps me pushing to succeed in life and in law. Also, it is a great way to explore the community in which I live in and other surrounding areas, all from my bicycle.

I Am Here To Help You With Your Most Important Legal Issues

Cases involving you and your family can be particularly emotional and require an empathetic representative who can counsel you choosing the proper course of action. To help families find financial security, plan for the future and navigate end-of-life legal procedures, I focus on the following areas:

  • Estate planning: Drafting testamentary documents and powers of attorney or establishing trusts
  • Elder law: Helping your loved one with Social Security and other government benefits such as Medicare and Medicaid, establishing long-term care plans, and creating guardianships and conservatorships
  • Probate administration: Helping you navigate the probate process and providing litigation representation in probate disputes
  • Real estate: Helping you buy or sell property, navigating foreclosures, and investing in assets and property

I provide personalized attention and take a listening-first approach to my attorney-client relationships, and I prioritize having an open and accessible office that can address all your concerns. I always communicate with my clients in an honest manner and help guide them through their legal issues in the most efficient way possible. I want to put your mind at ease when you work with me, so you know you are in good hands.
