Emily Joseph is a Senior Associate with Weiss Law Group. Having joined the firm in 2017, she focuses her practice on estate planning, estate administration, and planning for the special needs of the elderly and disabled. She brings to the practice the training and experience of a corporate
lawyer and a unique educational background in law and health policy.
Emily began practicing elder law in 2012. Prior to that, she spent several years as a corporate lawyer. She served as Delaware counsel on multi-billion-dollar funds and notable transactions, such as the financings of Yankee Stadium and Barclays Center. Her transition to practicing elder
law was motivated by her desire to work with individuals and her own family’s struggle with Alzheimer’s disease. She has since expanded her practice to include working with growing families, with whom she shares an affinity, having two young children herself. She believes that
estate plans should be comprehensive but not complicated.
Emily is active in the New York legal community. She regularly presents on topics relating to estate planning and elder law at continuing education seminars and community events. Emily spoke on wills and trusts as part of “Estate Planning and Practice” at the New York City Bar
Association and the National Law Institute’s programs on Elder Law. She is an active member of the Trusts and Estates and Elder Law and Special Needs Sections of the New York State Bar Association. She also contributes to professional publications.
Emily also believes in giving back to her local community. She serves as a mentor with the Fordham University Law School Institute on Religion, Law and Lawyer’s Work, and as a catechist (a Sunday school teacher) at her parish.
Emily is admitted to practice in New York, Delaware, and Pennsylvania. She received her law degree from George Washington University and holds a Graduate Certificate in Health Policy from the Milken Institute School of Public Health at George Washington University. She received her B.A. with honors from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. When not at work, she can be found chasing her children around Central Park or enjoying a baseball game.
