Of the 5 lawyers I have hired and worked with this year Joanne stood out as the only one who was pleasant to deal with, truly cared about her work and would respond clearly to my questions within a reasonable amount of time. I will continue to work with her for all of my legal needs in Long Island moving forward, as will my Aunt. Thanks Joanne!”– Zach W.

“Joanne treated my parents as if they were her own family. They could ask her anything and even though they were elderly and confused, she sat there patiently with them until they would understand the concepts. She took care of planning their estate, helped in the sale of their house, and their medicaid planning. She set up a trust for my disabled brother. I would never go to anyone else for advice. She always comes through with a solution and if she can’t solve something, she’ll refer me to someone who can. I consider her part of the family and trust her with all my family matters. She treated us like we were the most important people in the world. She returned our calls promptly and spoke to us for as long as she had to and never rushed us. She never kept track of hour many hours we spent on the phone. To her it was just part of her service. I always felt that she bent over backwards for us and never felt embarrassed to ask her anything even if I thought it was ridiculous. She’s an extraordinary woman and attorney,”– Robin
“Upon finding out that my mother had to be placed in a nursing home, and even though we had made all the protective arrangements for her estate at least ten years prior to this, the hospital social workers told us that the home would take EVERYTHING. Panic stricken I decided to consult an attorney. We scheduled an appointment with Joanne. As soon as we walked in she told us to calm down and that no one is going to take anything from you. She spoke to us for two hours went through all of our documents and explained to us in complete specific detail all the processes that had to be done. Her knowledge of elder law is really unsurpassed in my opinion. She left no stone unturned in preparing my mothers medicaid application and before she submitted it she made sure she had every piece of information necessary. The application went through without any issues what so ever. She also handled the closing of my mother’s life estate, which also went without issue. She is always totally prepared, kept us constantly informed, always returned our calls promptly and always had an answer to any question we asked. She truly knows the ins and outs of elder law. In my case the nursing home was not entitled to any of my mother’s estate, but had we not had Joanne I don’t know if that would have been the outcome. She is an excellent attorney. Thanks again Joanne.”– AnnMarie
