JEFFREY G. ABRANDT is a partner at Goldfarb Abrandt Salzman & Kutzin, LLP.  He practices primarily in the areas of Elder Law, Health Law, Trusts and Estates, Guardianships, and with the rights of the elderly and disabled.

For the first third of his career, Jeffrey was a public interest attorney focusing on government benefits and the legal problems of the elderly and disabled. During this time, he gained substantial experience in law reform and federal class actions.  In 1989, Jeffrey left public interest law after close to a decade as Attorney-In-Charge of the Legal Aid Society’s Brooklyn Office for the Aging, but continues to work with legislative reform efforts, and does ongoing community work with non-profit organizations which support the elderly and disabled.  

Currently Jeffrey is an Adjunct Professor at Hoftra University School of Law where he teaches Elder Law.  Since 2002, he has served as Co-Chair of the Elder Law Institute, an annual program for attorneys practicing elder law by the Practicing Law Institute.  Jeffrey has published numerous articles in the Practicing Law Institute’s Course Handbook Series as well as the Brookdale Institute’s Entitlement and Advocacy Training pamphlet series.  He is a frequent lecturer in Elder Law for various groups including the New York State Bar Associations, as well as other local bar associations.  He writes on Elder Law topics for many publications and organizations including the Alzheimer’s Association.

Jeffrey is on the Executive Committee of the New York State Bar Association’s Elder Law and Special Needs Section. He is also a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys and was acting Chair of the Senior Section of the National Legal Aid and Defenders Association (1988-89). He is a perennial “Best Lawyers” in New York, and has also been named as a “Super Lawyer.”

Jeffrey has litigated numerous cases including Mancher vs.  Sheepshead Bay Nursing Home, which successfully challenged New York State’s closure order of this nursing home, and Strano v. Perales, a class action lawsuit which established the right of Medicaid recipients to receive continuous 24 hour home care in New York City.
