Welcome to the LI Law Podcast. 

The premise of this podcast is to feature issues, developments, and topics affecting the law and how it relates to the 8 million of us who live or work on Long Island, New York, which includes Nassau, Suffolk, Queens, and Kings Counties. 

During the Covid-19 health crisis, episodes will be published as soon as they are recorded to keep listeners updated on the most up-to-date legal developments on Long Island. 

Our guest on this 51st episode is Yael N. Lazar, Esq.  Yael’s law practice in Locust Valley, New York is concentrated in estate planning and tax law practice with an emphasis on protecting families today while securing their unpredictable future.   Her legal expertise includes the preservation of wealth and values-based planning with unique Kids Protection Plans®.  Yael advises all types of families: traditional, divorced, blended, alternative, or single with children.

Yael Lazar graduated from St. John’s University School of Law in 1995 and served as a law clerk to the Honorable Ira J. Raab in the 1st District Court of Nassau County.  She worked briefly for the Law Offices of Martin H. Scher before starting her own matrimonial and family law practice, which included not only divorce, custody and child support cases, but also estate planning and real estate closings. After finding that many of her clients were left with tax issues following their divorces, Yael formed IRSAngel, a separate department of her firm, which handles all aspects of tax resolution work, including tax preparation.

Yael is recognized as a specialist in the IRS Problem-Solving Niche and won Long Island Press’s Best of Long Island in 2012. In addition to becoming a US Tax Agent, she has participated in and completed live seminars and trainings across the United States to gain specialized knowledge about the most up-to-date and effective solutions for dealing with IRS and other tax problems.  In addition to helping taxpayers end their frustration and fear created by communications with the IRS, she is the author of the book, Help for Your IRS Problem and co-author of the best-selling book Protect and Defend: Proven Strategies from America’s Leading Attorneys to Help You Protect and Defend Your Business, Family and Wealth.  Yael has been featured on ABC, CBS, NBC, and FOX on Meet The Experts hosted by Nick Nanton.  She has also been a frequent guest on the WNYH radio show Give Yourself Credit as well as the local TV show The Hot Seat
