Joanne Seminara and Angela Choy are always on top of things. Very professional, informed, and willing to go the extra mile. They have always responded back to me promptly and put my fears at ease. I am always stressed, and I feel secure in their knowledgeable hands. I am so glad I chose their services when my parents became ill. In their capable hands, I was able to navigate how best to help my parents

Judith D. Grimaldi is just plain awesome. She is a knowledgeable professional relentless, and kindhearted. She supported me through a nasty suit with a bitter relative. She was always there for me. Due to her expertise and being respected in the legal community, I received an outcome in my favor which was also a blessing to my mother. Highly, highly recommended. I would not even confer with anyone else but Judy. We need more people like her in the world. She will give you whatever you need, and you will feel cared for. Her staff is equally supportive and efficient. Judy Grimaldi and her office are the real deal!

I was forced into a difficult lawsuit with a bitter relative regarding my mother …Judy was amazing. She was knowledgeable, thorough, and relentless in working for me to a favorable outcome. She was very generous with her support, kindness, and her time. I would never have survived without her. She is the only person to call. I highly highly recommend it…I never felt lost or forgotten. She will have you back. Wonderful lawyer and person! Her staff is equally amazing, very helpful, and patient. It is truly qualified full service. You won’t be disappointed

This practice exemplifies the rare combination of professionalism, expertise, and compassion. Judith Grimaldi was a staunch ally and advocated through the emotionally difficult process of setting up a family trust and eventually making sure that my mother had the best possible situation in a long-term care facility. Dawn Bidetti was also extremely helpful. No question or concern was too large or small – and I always received a prompt and helpful reply. I like the fact that this is a women-led business, and I feel very confident recommending Grimaldi & Yeung to all

You gave so much information in such a clear, warm way, explaining these complex and often anxiety-producing legal and financial decisions. It was a wonderful introduction and guide to what needs to be considered and worked out in a legal form, and I had the feeling that many people came away with new confidence for getting the plans set up.

Joanne Seminara and her assistant handled legal issues relevant to the passing of our mom. Throughout the process, Joanne displayed a working knowledge of the law as well as an informed view of the expectations and requirements needed to fully represent the estate and home sale. Her services were always well-organized and efficient. The quality of her legal advice and actions on the belief of the estate demonstrated competence, proficiency, and a degree of experience that was much appreciated. We both respect and commend Joanne Seminara for her professionalism and her legal representation.
