Long Island Business News Selects Tanya Hobson-Williams as One of its Top 50 Most Influential Women

September 12, 2014

JAMAICA ESTATES, NY — Attorney Tanya Hobson-Williams of Hobson-Williams, P.C. has been selected as one of the Top 50 Most Influential Women by Long Island Business News. She will be honored at a special ceremony on October 23 from 6-10 p.m. at Crest Hollow Country Club.

Appointed to the bench by the Incorporated Village of Hempstead Board of Trustees in 2008, and elected in 2009, Ms. Hobson-Williams was the village’s first African-American female justice before leaving the bench in 2013. As a Village Justice, she struck down unconstitutional village laws in People v. Allstate Properties and upheld free speech in People v. Babyak.

Ms. Hobson-Williams has an active elder law practice assisting senior citizens in obtaining Medicaid for home care and nursing home care. She gained her expertise in the field of elder law through her employment with several New York City law firms before opening her own practice.

In addition to her work as an attorney, she routinely lectures at senior citizen centers, assisted living facilities, law schools and counsels families on a variety of topics of concern to families caring for the elderly. Ms. Hobson-Williams is also contracted by the State of New York Employee Assistance Program to provide training to state employees on legal issues that affect them.

Her practice has resulted in a number of legal decisions that have assisted attorneys in the practice of Guardianship Law and has written a number of articles on Guardianship practice in New York and Medicaid planning for seniors. Ms. Hobson-Williams engages in pro bono legal services through her work as a Guardian ad Litem with the New York City housing courts, providing services to hundreds of disabled and senior citizens who are facing eviction and need representation in Housing Court. She has served as a Guardian ad Litem for over 13 years.

She received recognition from the Nassau County Executive Office, the Hempstead Branch of the NAACP for legal services, and a service award from the Calvary Tabernacle in 2013.

Ms. Hobson–Williams obtained her B.A. in Government and Politics from St. John’s University and her law degree from Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law. She is currently pursuing a Master’s Degree in Labor and Policy.

“I am honored to accept this prestigious award,” Ms. Hobson-Williams said. “As an attorney, I advocate for the needs of our senior citizens who cannot speak for themselves. Many of them are on the verge of losing their homes and do not have anywhere else to go or the finances needed to find another home.”

Testimonials

“I want to take this time to thank Tanya and Keith for their professionalism and their ability to keep me calm during this process. Tanya was very helpful in explaining the whole guardianship process and my next steps. Despite my numerous emails, I never felt ignored or that they were growing weary of me. Even after being granted guardianship when I had an issue with the bank releasing money Tanya stayed calm and found a way to get what I was entitled to. I hope I never need to do this again but if I do, I will definitely come back to Tanya and her team. Thank you Thank you Thank you. Love from Bermuda.”
