    Mr. Katz has represented my clients for nine years. His area of expertise is Elder Law where he does litigation and trial work. Another talent Mr. Katz has honed is in the management of the excellent team he has brought together, a key issue for any client. This enhances the communications and quality of service that is provided. I continue to refer my clients to Mr. Katz in his and his firm's areas of expertise.
