Timothy P. Crisafulli practices in the areas of tax law, trust and estates, and elder law.

His tax practice focuses on assisting businesses, not-for-profit organizations, and individuals with tax planning, compliance, audits, and disputes.  He helps businesses achieve optimal tax results, develop succession plans, and comply with federal and state tax laws.  He forms not-for-profit organizations, and helps them to obtain and maintain tax-exempt status.  Individuals and businesses facing audits and collections proceedings rely on Mr. Crisafulli for representation before the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and New York State Department of Taxation and Finance.  Mr. Crisafulli is admitted to practice in the United States Tax Court, and is authorized to represent taxpayers with respect to all matters administered by the IRS.  He is a candidate for an Executive LL.M. in Taxation from the Graduate Tax Program at the New York University School of Law, an advanced law degree for tax attorneys.

Through his trusts and estates practice, Mr. Crisafulli helps families protect, preserve, and effectively transfer wealth.  He utilizes his extensive knowledge of tax law to minimize capital gains, income, gift and estate taxes.  He administers estates through all stages of probate, representing both fiduciaries and beneficiaries in litigation under highly-specialized Surrogate’s Court procedural rules.

Mr. Crisafulli’s elder law practice is dedicated to assisting clients with long-term care planning.  He helps clients qualify for Medicaid without sacrificing their life savings.  He also represents clients in Medicaid fair hearings and in guardianship proceedings.

Mr. Crisafulli is also a regular author and lecturer on various tax, trust and estate matters.

Prior to co-founding the Firm, Mr. Crisafulli practiced in the Tax, Trusts and Estates departments of a large Upstate New York law firm. He is a former middle school and high school social studies teacher in the Fayetteville-Manlius Central School District.
