Estate Planning Attorney and Founder of Sheryll Law, P.C. Jay Sheryll, is excited to announce the hiring of Elder Law, Asset Protection, and Medicaid Planning Attorney Jennifer Raguso. Raguso brings eight years of experience in this area of law to the Riverhead, New York-based firm, having practiced at a prominent elder law firm after interning with Jay earlier in their careers at another elder law firm. Within the elder law umbrella, Raguso’s focuses on asset protection, including Medicaid planning and assisting families with setting up home care and deciding whether nursing home care or home care is the best option for their loved ones.
Raguso looks forward to assisting Sheryll Law P.C.’s clients in these areas of law, in addition to general estate planning, tax planning, and avoiding probate for younger families. She’ll also assist with probate trust administration for the loved ones of clients that pass away.
“I’m thrilled to become part of the team at Sheryll Law, P.C.,” Raguso says. “What I love most about this type of law is that I get to see the people I’m helping; there’s human interaction. It’s not as adversarial. I’m just advocating for my clients, not necessarily fighting with another attorney. Before COVID, most of my meetings with clients ended with hugs because you learn so much about their families and make a genuine connection. Growing up, my sickly grandmother lived with us, and my mom was her fierce advocate. That inspired me to pursue a career in elder law and estate planning. I’ve always had a special place for the senior population, and I look forward to contributing to the success of Sheryll Law, P.C. and the peace of mind of their valued clients.”
“We’re delighted to welcome Jennifer to the firm,” enthuses Jay Sheryll. “Her passion for helping the senior population and their families, along with her extensive knowledge and experience, makes her a perfect fit for our firm. With Jennifer on the team, we can expand our ability to connect with and assist many more families on the East End of Long Island in the areas of elder law, asset protection, and Medicaid planning. We’re excited to see what the future holds.”
