Pauline Yeung-Ha, Co-Chair of AABANY’s Pro Bono Committee, has been recognized by the Brooklyn Daily as a Woman of Distinction. The newspaper chronicled her journey from her start as an immigrant to the United States with her family to her achievements as the first member of her family to graduate from high school, college and law school.
Here is a short excerpt on Pauline from the article:
Neighborhood: Park Slope.
Occupation: Elder law and estate planning lawyer.
Company: Grimaldi & Yeung LLP, started with my partner, Judith D. Grimaldi, in 2008.
Claim To Fame: First Asian elder law attorney.
Favorite Brooklyn Place: Park Slope.
I Admire: My mentor and now my partner, Judith D. Grimaldi. I wouldn’t
have been where I’m at without her continuous support.
or Life Saying: Often when I meet people, they’ll say “I wish I’d known
you earlier.” And I think, “I wish I could have helped you earlier.”
Congratulations again, Pauline, for the well-deserved recognition!
