The firm has added a number of people to its New York office in recent months.

Before this, Landeros (formerly Slezak) was in private practice as a high net worth estate planning and administration attorney for over two decades. The foundation of her career was formed in the private clients group of White & Case LLP and personal representation department of Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP, both in New York, before moving her practice to Nassau County.

Landeros earned her juris doctor, cum laude from St John’s University School of Law, where she was a member of the law review, and a bachelor of arts in English from Fordham University. She is a member of numerous committees of the Trusts and Estates section of the New York State Bar Association and a long-time participant in the Surrogate Decision-Making Committee program of the New York State Justice Center for People with Special Needs.
