I retained Grimaldi Yeung Law Group to prepare and submit a Medicaid application for nursing home care on behalf of my mother. During the process, it was determined that my sister and I should place my mother's house in a revocable trust, something I had not considered. I was glad Grimaldi Yeung Law Group had the expertise to suggest it.

Very professional service. Highly recommend Pauline Yeung-Ha. She is smart, professional and considerate. She really knows her stuff and actually cares for her clients. At my mom's consultation today, she asked my mom some really pertinent questions. This politely managed to get Mom to carefully consider private, personal and sometimes, conflicting issues.

My mom now has home health care through Medicaid thanks to my attorney at Grimaldi Yeung Law Group. I can't thank David Kronenberg and his associates enough for all his hard work and kindness during a very difficult time for myself and my mom.

The law firm's motto, In Legal Matters, People Matter, is extremely apropos. May my attorney and her colleagues continue making the world a better place.

I still remember our first conversation with Judie Grimaldi when she spoke about how she brought her children to help with the Services to the Aging program at the library. Her humanity comes shining through her wise counsel.

The fact that Dad was able to stay home with 24-hour Medicaid home health aides and not have to go to a nursing home was a true blessing and it was thanks to Grimaldi Yeung Law Group.

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 Law Group to all.

Planning for
Married Couples

Serving Clients in New York City and the New York
Metropolitan Area
Marriage comes with new rights and responsibilities. If you already had an estate plan created when you were single, then you must bring your estate plan up-to-date to reflect your spouse/partner. There are special inheritance plans for surviving spouses, such as tax planning to take advantage of spousal tax credits.

Many married couples believe that they have the natural right to make decisions for each other, whether personal, health-related or financial, when a spouse becomes unable to do so. Nothing could be further from the truth!

Without proper documents appointing your spouse as your decision-maker, your spouse will not have legal authority to make fundamental decisions for you – not even those affecting both of you. For example, medical privacy laws will deny your spouse/partner access to your medical records or the ability to consult with your physician(s) and make health care choices if you are unable. There are financial laws which limit control over your spouse’s finances held solely in their name such as retirement accounts

By appointing a decision-maker for yourself using proper estate planning documents, whether it be your spouse or another, you can avoid a future crisis. If you don’t appoint a decision-maker when needed, a guardianship judge will select one for you. While the judge will likely appoint your spouse or an appropriate family member, the court process to accomplish this is long, expensive and can be a burden to your spouse/partner and family.

Additionally, without planning ahead, depending on how your assets are titled and how your beneficiary designations are arranged, you may inadvertently disinherit your own spouse. If not corrected your spouse will need to sue your estate to receive their rightful share!

Fortunately, we can help you avoid any unwanted probate processes by replacing an impersonal state-written creative and estate plan life together we designed together for your married circumstances and objectives. We can even assist you with coordinating the beneficiary designations on your life insurance policy(s) and retirement plans and other assets with your estate plan in order to avoid unpleasant and unintended consequences.
