Alice Reiter Feld, South Florida Elder Law and Estate Planning Attorney
Alice Reiter Feld has earned a reputation as one of Florida’s most devoted advocates for seniors and their families.
Ms. Reiter Feld has been in private practice for over 30 years. During that time, she’s proven to be a determined fighter for the rights of senior citizens and family members when it comes to elder care options, and on the importance of engaging an elder law attorney to plan and execute a personalized strategy. Her primary areas of practice under the “Elder Law Umbrella” include long-term care needs planning, asset protection planning, estate planning, probate, Veteran’s Benefits, and Medicaid planning and assistance.
Part of her commitment to her client families has gone beyond the realm of legal issues. She believes based on the countless numbers of people she has met and helped over a 30 year career, that each client has a legacy beyond money to leave to their children and grandchildren. She works with them to uncover what those values are and helps each client family find the most effective way to communicate those values, hopes and dreams to their heirs.
Alice Reiter Feld is licensed to practice law in both Florida and New York, as well as before the United States Court of Appeals for Veteran’s Claims. She’s a Board Certified Elder Law Specialist by The Florida Bar and The National Elder Law Foundation. And she’s “AV” rated (the highest rating) by Martindale Hubbell.
