Fatoullah is available to discuss the topics that arise when caring for a parent. He is the founder and managing attorney of Ronald Fatoullah & Associates, a New York law firm that exclusively focuses on the legal and financial challenges of aging: elder law, estate planning, Medicaid eligibility, asset preservation, probate, wills, trusts, guardianships, veteran planning, and planning for same-sex couples.

Summer Security Trends and Tips
Robert Siciliano
"Summer marks a busy time of year when Americans need to be extra aware of heightened home security breaches. According to the FBI, July and August have the highest burglary rate of any months in the year, as intruders look to take advantage of increased travel for the summer months. It is pertinent that homeowners take action and prevent invasions by strengthening home security."
Siciliano, a committed home security expert with 20 years of experience, is available to discuss best practices for how Americans can protect their homes and families by staying constantly connected through installing simple yet strong security systems, as well as getting on board the burgeoning home automation trend.
