About the Speaker

Attorney Martin M. Shenkman of Paramus, New Jersey (Martin M. Shenkman, PC), a veteran estate planner, knows that estate planning can be complicated under the best of circumstances. However, when his wife was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2006, he discovered that for the more than 90 million Americans living with chronic illnesses, estate planning is an even more daunting process. Shenkman was surprised to discover a dearth of information on estate planning for the chronically ill. After completing a revised estate plan that accounted for his wife's future health needs, Shenkman decided to do more to help the chroically ill and their families understand the need for planning. "This has been a tremendously rewarding experience. Part of why we become lawyers is to help and make a contribution to society, and there are endless opportunities to help. It feels good to do good," said Shenkman.
