Susan B. Slater-Jansen is the sole attorney at the law firm she founded in White Plains, New York. Ms. Slater-Jansen diligently assists clients throughout Westchester County and New York City with estate planning and family law matters. She helps clients determine their estate planning needs, resolve estate tax issues, and design and implement vital estate planning documents.
While Ms. Slater-Jansen has significant experience working with artists and the parents of special-needs children to address their unique estate planning needs, her client base is broad and includes high net worth individuals, families of modest means, and corporate and individual fiduciaries. She also works with same-sex couples to formalize the terms of their new relationships by executing cohabitation, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements.
Ms. Slater-Jansen earned a Bachelor of Arts from Queens College, CUNY, from which she graduated magna cum laude. After college she completed a 5 year legal clerkship and passed the bar exam on her first attempt. She then served as a trusts and estates partner at two prominent firms, one in White Plains and the other in New York City.
A nationally regarded authority in her field, Ms. Slater-Jansen has written on estate planning and domestic law for publications such as the Domestic Law Review, Trusts & Estates magazine, the New York State Bar Journal and NYSBA's Elder Law Attorney.
