Attorney Steven Melnik also recently started a recurring seminar for Free Community Education and Assistance. This free monthly educational seminar began on November 4, 2013 and so far it has been a great success. Over 50 people have registered for the seminar so far and have been grateful for the legal expertise and assistance. The seminar goes for about two hours each session and it is held on the first Monday of every month. There are a variety of relevant topics which are discussed in the community seminar including pension Medicaid, estate planning, tax planning and asset protection. We also discuss how you can protect your savings, properties and investments from being lost due to high medical costs.

The Steven Melnik Center was created to help people in the community who are unable to afford professional attorney fees and need assistance in these areas. This is our way to give back to the community by sharing essential knowledge on these core issues and assisting people with their financial planning. On the morning of November 4 (the day of the first seminar), Attorney Steven also gave a lecture to an audience of Staten Island Technical Students. He spoke to them about various careers in accounting, tax law and academia. This lecture was a huge success as he encouraged people of the future generation and reminded them of how successful they can be. These students don't often have anyone to go to in order to seek out career advice.
