On October 29, AABANY’s Student Outreach Committee presented the Upstate Roadshow.  Held at Syracuse Law School, a contingent of lawyers from downstate and from the Syracuse area visited with law students from Syracuse Law School and University of Buffalo Law School to talk about AABANY, exam writing, resume writing and interviewing skills and practical skills required to succeed in the legal profession.  Thanks to Mark Sweeney from Syracuse Law School and Melle Xu from University of Buffalo Law School for working with AABANY’s Student Outreach Committee to make the event happen.  Thanks to Mary Trainor, Shelly Tsai and Josephine Yang Pat-yi, attorneys from Syracuse, for participating in the panels.  Thanks to Liza Sohn and Ben Chan, co-chairs of the Student Outreach Committee for planning and organizing the event.  Thanks to Chris Chan, Yang Chen, Francis Chin, Will Ng and Thomas Hou for their involvement.  Thanks also to Bond Schoeneck & King for co-sponsoring the event.  We enjoyed meeting with the students and attorneys upstate and we look forward to staying in touch and working with them in the future.

AABANY Congratulates Pauline Yeung-Ha, Esq.

Pauline Yeung-HaAABANY congratulates Pauline Yeung-Ha, Esq., partner at Grimaldi & Yeung, on the following recognitions:

SUPER LAWYER RISING STAR 2011 (The only Elder Law attorney named Rising Star in New York State) and

New York Magazine’s BEST LAWYER 2012

Both recognitions of Super Lawyer Rising Star and New York Magazine’s Best Lawyer, involve a very selective and intense process in which the selected attorney is nominated and approved by his/her peers in the same area of practice.

Only 2.5% of the State’s attorneys under 40 years of age are selected as Rising Stars.  The attorney must prove to be ethical, have excellent client records and proven results.

New York Magazine’s Best Lawyer recognition has been described as “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”

Congratulations, Pauline!
