If you prepare a list for triathlon races, or for any other race for that matter, then you may consider listening to my interview with Deanna Eble, partner of The Russo Law Group in Garden City.

About the Interview:

Deanna’s husband is an Ironman triathlete. He participates in numerous races every year. Each year, while Deanna sits on the sidelines watching, she consistently notices that someone gets hurt. She’s even been to events were some had passed away.

During this interview of Hilary Topper on Air, Deanna discusses the other documents you need to compete in a run, swim, cycle event, or triathlon. These documents include health care proxies, trusts, wills, and more.

About Deanna Eble

Deanna is a Partner at Russo Law Group, P.C. of Garden City, Islandia, Lido Beach, and Manhattan, New York. She focuses on Elder Law, Estate Planning, Special Needs Planning, and Medicaid Planning, and has practiced in these areas for more than fifteen years. Deanna is a member of the New York State Bar Association, Nassau County Bar Association, Nassau County Women’s Bar Association, Elder Counsel, and is admitted to the New York Bar. She earned her law degree at Hofstra University School of Law. Deanna frequently presents seminars on Elder Law and Estate Planning throughout Nassau and Suffolk counties.

While attending school, Deanna worked in a nursing home for almost ten years. The experience of working with the families and seeing the challenges presented in trying to care for a loved one inspired her to focus on Elder Law and related practice areas. “Caring for a loved one during an illness can be such a stressful time for everyone involved, and each individual handles that stress in a different way,” says Deanna. “The fact that I can be there for families during times like these, and provide sound legal counsel about how to pay for and provide the necessary care, is what motivates me every day. I take great satisfaction in helping families address their legal needs, so they can focus their energies on spending time with their loved ones.”

As an attorney, Deanna has helped hundreds of families with all levels of planning. She assists families interested in planning in advance for the possibility of incapacity and the need for long-term care. She also helps families in crisis situations—when they have been told that a loved one must enter a nursing home soon or has already been placed in one, and they need to obtain assistance from Medicaid quickly.

Deanna and her husband, Brandon, have been married since April 2001. They have two wonderful boys. Deanna was born on Long Island and now lives in Kings Park. Deanna enjoys baking and spending time with her family.
