Lawrence N. Berwitz, Esq.


After working his way through law school at night as a police officer in New York City, Larry serve as an assistant district attorney in Bronx County. Larry transitioned his practice to commercial litigation in highly respected Manhattan law firms where he also handled estate planning and estate matters. In 1997, Larry narrowed his law practice to estate planning, elder law, trust and estates, guardianships and special needs planning. Larry continued to use the trial skills he developed as a prosecutor and commercial litigator in contested Surrogate’s Court matters and guardianships. Larry’s expertise in these areas led him to serve as a co-chair of both the Nassau County Bar Association’s Surrogate’s Court Estates & Trusts Committee and the Elder Law, Social Services & Health Advocacy Committee. Larry, who has achieved his certification as an Accredited Estate Planner, is currently a member of the Estate Planning Council of Nassau, Inc. and serves on its Board of Directors. Larry is also a certified mediator concerning issues that relate to his area of practice


In his spare time, Larry ballroom dances with his wife and partner, Maureen, and aspires to learning to play golf well. He is a lifetime New York sports fan. And, while he hopes all New York teams play well, regrettably, he especially roots for the Mets and Jets.


Maureen Rothschild DiTata, Esq.


Maureen began her legal career as a criminal prosecutor and served as an Assistant District Attorney in Manhattan where she had the opportunity to handle a broad range of criminal matters. After the completion of her service as an ADA, she joined the ranks of civil and commercial litigators and then, in 2000, she and Lawrence N. Berwitz, her husband and lifetime partner, formed their own law firm in Garden City. Maureen is a new Partner at Abrams Fensterman, LLP and joins the firm’s Elder Law & Estate Planning Practice in its Lake Success office. Maureen devotes her skills to estate and asset preservation planning, special needs planning, estate and trust administration and elder law, including Medicaid planning and Medicaid applications. Because Maureen is an active listener and has always enjoyed creative problem solving, she has, for most of her career, guided clients in the resolution of issues that would otherwise have resulted in costly and time-consuming litigation. Beginning in 2013, Maureen began formal mediation training and has developed an expertise in alternative dispute resolution, principally among members of the same family. She mediates matters involving trusts and estates and guardianship and enjoys assisting clients in exploring alternative avenues for achieving resolution of these most personal and emotional disputes.


Maureen is the proud owner of two West Highland terriers (Westies), named Kepler and Copernicus.
