Elder & Disability Law Firm

With Heart, Humor, and Hope

In Loving Memory

We are sad to inform you that Ron M. Landsman passed away on Saturday, March 4th, 2023, due to complications from a bone marrow transplant he underwent at the beginning of February.  As many of you may know, Ron had been battling Acute Myeloid Leukemia since May, 2021, exacerbated by multiple bouts of long Covid.


Ron established the eponymous Ron M. Landsman, P.A., now known as the Landsman Law Group, in 1991.  He was a titan in the field of elder law and generously shared his vast knowledge with others, both in and outside of our firm. Ron’s kind heart and ebullient spirit will be greatly missed.  

The remaining partners at Landsman Law Group -  Erin A. Mahony, May-Lis Manley, Helen M. Whelan, and Edward M. Biggin - along with the rest of our firm, will continue providing the same level of commitment and exemplary service to our clients while remaining active in the elder law community as a whole.

We Are Here For You

We are an elder law and disability law firm that solves Medicaid planning - paying for nursing home & long-term care costs - and estate planning problems for our clients in a narrow range of areas.

We care about our clients and the work we do for them, but do not let ourselves lose the distance we need to be good advisors and advocates in assisting them in the tough life decisions and actions they must take.

Caring about clients is not enough. We know we need intelligence and knowledge to convert that care into good results. Add to that decades of experience so that we are able to pick the right path quickly and pursue it vigorously. We know from experience that even in the worst of times there is reason – indeed, the need – to laugh. Life is too short and too hard not to laugh with our clients and at ourselves from time to time.

"Ron and his staff were wonderful and very helpful. Rest assured we will return to you if your services are needed again, and we will certainly recommend your firm to others."

- Kim A. | Gaithersburg

A Message to Clients, Business Associates,  and Friends - from Landsman Law Group Attorneys and Staff

First, we hope everyone continues to remain healthy and safe during these difficult times.
