Compassionate Service from a Lawyer Who Cares
Yana is one of the most compassionate people you will ever meet. She takes the time to explain the hard processes - whether you are looking to plan out you future or need help through losing a loved one. I highly recommend her.

Could not have asked for a better attorney!
Yana is a very professional, knowledgeable, and flexible lawyer. During the process of making a will for my mother, she gave me many options for what I can do. It was very personalized to my needs and was an all-around wonderful experience.

Great Attorney!!!
Yana very knowledgeable ,professional and accommodating person. I had used her services on couple of occasions. She helped my  family ones with the trust  and then again with trust/will. As far as price I think she was pretty reasonable too. The most important quality that she has ... she will uphold her promise. You can definitely rely on her she will not let you down. I would recommend Yana Feldman to anybody.

Above and beyond excellent
I came to Yana in an extreme time crunch. She had actually been recommended to me by another lawyer. I needed several documents drafted, including ones involving supplemental security income (SSI), a special needs trust and estate/will issues. Yana delivered up and beyond what was necessary, providing me with additional documents I didn't even know I needed. Her fee was more than fair and her work was impeccable. I would highly recommend her to friends and relatives.

Excellent resource for estate planning
I scheduled an appointment with Yana for help with estate planning. My situation is a bit unconventional (my husband is from another country and his immigration status is still pending), so I wanted to ensure that all factors were taken into account. Yana took the time to thoroughly go through all of my finances with me, explained various issues that I hadn't considered, and helped me create an estate plan that works best for my circumstances, including a will, testamentary trust, power of attorney and health care proxy. I had many questions, but Yana took the time to answer them all very clearly and without legal jargon, and she gave me examples of different scenarios to help me understand. I felt very comfortable with her and never felt like I was being rushed. Yana drafted all of the documents in less than a week, and I had everything finalized in just two visits. I highly recommend Yana for estate planning.

Intelligent and Pleasant
Yana helped me with my family's estate planning (multi-state properties, trusts and power of attorneys). My situation was a but complicated. She gave me very intelligent advice and she did it in a very pleasant way. It was easy to understand and easy to implement. It is nice to know that there are lawyers out there that truly care about helping people.

Yana, the human lawyer
Worked with Yana on family related matters: Health Care Proxy, Power of Attorney, etc. I had about seven hundred and twenty three questions about who and how makes decisions, who would inherit what and from whom, who gets notified about what and when and how. Yana was able to answer all of those without making me feel like I am overburdening her, offered a number of scenarios I didn't realize existed, and did all of this in a plain human language that actually made sense, rather than in some obscure terms that are only relevant to the folks who survived law school. She is very thorough and attentive and patient, and made the potentially tedious exercise into a pleasant one. I also urged my parents to work with Yana on their wills and planning documents, and they were very pleased with their experience, as well. Thank you, Yana, for being the lawyer who speaks the human language!

Great professional!
I was a client of Yana. She provided professional efficient service and had the case resolved . Yana's kindness and willingness to help is impressive and refreshing in the legal industry. I would strongly recommend her to anyone who wants to sleep soundly knowing they are legally protected .

Finally I have found help!
Being on disability, I had a problem with Medicaid. Then I found Yana Feldman. She gave me and my case a lot of attention, which helped me to solve my problems. I am very happy with the result.

Great Lawyer
Yana is a very knowledgeable lawyer who is willing to spend time with you and explain all the details as well as address all of your concerns. She has a great personality and a real gift to communicate with elderly people.

Very knowledgeable and professional attorney
I contacted Ms Feldman regarding some of the intricacies of setting up a will and organizing our finances. She handled my request with professionalism, high level of knowledge and patience: she listened to all my questions and concerns and provided me with a detailed, precise consultation focused on my issues. I would gladly recommend dealing with Ms Feldman -- her attention to detail, people skills and most importantly level of expertise set a very high bar.

Amazing solution for aging parents
Aging parents is not an easy subject. The worry of their well-being gets more intense when you are not geographically close. The home care is the answer, but without Medicaid it is basically financially impossible. My sister and I were lucky to to get Yana Feldman's to qualify my parents for Medicaid and receive home care 8 hours a day for 6 days a week. Yana Feldman is not only the most knowledgeable in elderly law, she is also very warm and caring person. It helped us a lot dealing with this issue emotionally. My parents are so happy, and it made them feel good about themselves. Thank you Yana!

Lousy
I'm not sure what the other reviewers are talking about, but Yana Feldman is a terrible attorney. She never returned my client files in a timely manner or fashion.
Response from Yana Feldman October 18, 2016
There seem to be some misunderstanding, as I have never encountered such a scenario. We strive to provide the highest level of service to our clients. I am not sure who you are, but please feel free to contact me via phone at (718) 618-9000 or email at [email protected].
