We love what we do and we love to share it -- with our clients, other members of the Bar, the media, and anyone else who is interested in learning about our areas of practice. We also believe that communication skills go a long way in all of our professional relationships. Thus, we strive to be accessible in and to all media with an interest in the practice of law, including the new online media.
We are on LinkedIn and Facebook, and we have articles published in online media that we encourage you to read. We also are available to assist members of the media who are seeking experts in our areas of practice. Below are some of the media appearances, publications or links where you can find us or read about timely topics in the law:
Thomson-Reuters, owner of West Publishing and Westlaw online legal research, contracted with Joanne to write content for its Practical Law series in Estate Planning for both Florida and New York, which she did through the end of 2016.
The New York State Bar Association's Elder and Special Needs Law Journal published an article written by Joanne in the Winter 2016 edition titled, "Should They Go or Should They Stay? Issue-Spotting for the New York Lawyer Whose Client May be Considering a Change in Domicile to Florida"
Joanne is available to speak at local groups and public libraries by invitation. She recently presented public workshops on "Wills, Trusts and Estate Planning" at the Westbury Memorial Library, "Planning for Long-Term Health Care: What Everybody Wants is Control" at the Wantagh Public Library, and "Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid for the Elderly" at the Plainview Public Library.
Joanne Fanizza addressed the Elder Law, Social Services & Health Advocacy Committee of the Nassau County Bar on "What to do when the nursing home makes a claim against your client: Creative ideas and solutions from the perspective of both the nursing home and the client." Joanne spoke from the client's perspective, discussing the federal and state laws that severely limit a nursing home's ability to sue patients when they have Medicare or Medicaid -- and the client's remedies if they are wrongly sued. The meeting took place on March 15, 2011.
