Rachel Shaffer Gersie, Esq.

Life Requires Planning; we are here for you.

Working in the estate and elder law area has been so fulfilling for me both professionally and personally. Because of the nature of the work we do, we often see clients during difficult times in their lives. It has been very rewarding for me to help clients work through these difficult times with a clear plan that demystifies some of the complex legal issues involved.


Mrs. Gersie dedicates her practice to a wide array of estate planning and administration and elder law matters. She consults closely with clients to understand their specific situations when preparing Wills and Trusts, based on the unique needs of each client.

She coordinates with clients’ financial advisors to assemble and submit applications for Medicaid benefits via the county Boards of Social Services. Mrs. Gersie provides families compassion as she helps them navigate the legal and often perplexing challenges presented by aging loved ones.

Mrs. Gersie lives in Haddonfield, NJ with her husband, Chris, and their three children.
