Welcome to the LI Law Podcast.  We feature legal issues and developments which affect Long Island residents and business owners.  The podcast focuses on Long Island law topics and includes greater New York court and legislative happenings.  If you are one of the approximate 8 million residents of Long Island (Nassau, Suffolk, Queens, and Kings counties), or want to enjoy all law-related matters on Long Island, this podcast is for you!

Your host, Zehava Schechter, is an attorney admitted to the New York Bar for 30 years.  She concentrates her private practice in estate planning, administration, and litigation; real estate law; contracts, and business formation and dissolution.  If you like this podcast, you may want to look for Zehava’s monthly articles in the Malverne/West Hempstead Herald and the Beacon newspaper.

We are taking a slight turn with this episode.  Our guest on this 11th episode is Larry Wolff, movie critic and lecturer, who will speak to us about 2 movies about politics and government, “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington” and “All Through the Night,” as well as their connection to Long Island.  This is a not-to-be missed fun episode.

Larry Wolff was an expert New York State Residency Tax Auditor for most of his 35 years of employment with the Tax Department. After retiring, he decided to have some fun. He now applies his lifelong accumulated knowledge to film lectures. At an early age, he appreciated the art of the cinema that entertained him. His early film interests were Gangsters, gag men and ghouls. He later came to appreciate dramas, with interesting story lines, as well as film noir. He now brings these interests before the public with Power Point enhanced film and Hollywood personality lectures and film showings. His goal – to entertain and educate his audience.

He has appeared on Lou Telano’s Street Wise radio program, and has been a regular contributor to the “A and P” Podcast show and the Abbott and Costello New York Fan Club.  Larry has served as Grand Sheik of the Long Island Tent of the Sons of the Desert (Laurel and Hardy Appreciation Society) has given public lectures for the last ten years at libraries, synagogues, churches, fraternal organizations, and private groups.
