Joanne Seminara gives Colonial Club some helpful legal advice

Five Legal Documents You Need by 55:
Attorney Joanne Seminara speaks at Colonial Club
BY JOHN ALEXANDER
Brooklyn Daily Eagle

“Good lawyers have different ways of reaching people, and attorney Joanne Seminara offered an engaging and informative talk at the Colonial Club of Bay Ridge meeting on Thursday.

Seminara has been a community leader in Bay Ridge for over 30 years and served has been a member of Community Board 10 for the last 20 years. She is an outspoken advocate in the neighborhood and is a partner at Grimaldi & Yeung LLP, where she specializes in the areas of elder law, estate planning and estate administration.

Elder law consists of looking at people’s comprehensive life insurance and their health issues and their needs for long-term care. “We look at if they have long-term health insurance and what kind of supplemental coverage they have. We also talk about government benefits and Medicaid.”

She said Estate planning includes things like wills and power of attorney.

Seminara explained the importance of planning for the future when is young enough to think straight. “At 55, we’re encouraging people to begin planning for their future. It’s the time in your life when you should say, ‘Honey, we have to go see a lawyer and put some basic documents in place.”
