Attorney at Law
Polani offers “concierge” service and often travels to clients’ homes and
businesses in the South Florida area, providing assistance with personal estate
planning, including wills, durable powers of attorney, trusts, and probate. Her
law firm also provides representation in foreclosure defense, and business
formations or succession planning. Having worked in Tel Aviv for several years
with a well-known law practice, Mrs. Polani is fluent in Hebrew, as well.
Pamela Polani is also one of the leading
attorneys in digital asset protection and her novel approach to estate planning
was discussed in a series of newspaper articles, published by the Sun Sentinel
and Orlando Sentinel in the Summer 2013.
However, it is Pamela Polani's dedication
and involvement with many charitable organizations that truly distinguishes her
in the South Florida Community.
The Florida Association of
Women’s Lawyers of South Palm Beach, named Attorney Polani, as one of their Outstanding Members
in 2013-14, for creating
a unique program,
modeled after “Jeopardy”, to help teach
high school seniors their legal rights as adults.
is also the recipient of the 2014 "Woman of Distinction" award by Soroptimist International, in the
professional capacity, for her community service.
In June 2015,
Pamela Polani was then recognized by the State of Florida Bar Association,
along with FAWL, as a “Leader in Law”.
In 2015 and in 2016,
Pamela Polani was also nominated as Junior League of Boca Raton’s “Volunteer of
In March 2016, ATTORNEY AT LAW magazine awarded Attorney Polani, the Attorney of the Year award, the first time ever designating any attorney for that position!
Among several other organizations, Attorney
Polani serves on the Professional Advisory Committee in Boca Raton for the
National Holocaust and Memorial Museum, located in Washington D.C., a lifelong
member of Hadassah’s Professional Committee and is a business partner for the
Scholastic Advisory Committee at local public schools.
After several years
of participating and supporting the Alzheimer's Association in a professional
capacity, Pamela Polani began in 2013 to truly encourage the headquarters of
the S.E. area to expand their Walks, to have one that addressed the needs of
people living in Boca/Delray/Boynton/Parkland/Deerfield Beach specifically.
As chairperson of the Boca Walk to End Alzheimer's that she created, Mrs. Polani strives to educate
those in the overall, professional and legal community, that although Alzheimer’s
remains one of the least understood and discussed diseases, it is one of the
leading causes of deaths in our country. While every other major disease
in our country is on the decline, Alzheimer's is dramatically on the increase. This
is why, unlike many other charity walks, the Boca Walk to End Alzheimer's does
not charge any registration fee whatsoever to include all members of the
community and help increase awareness of how this disease affects everyone.
All diseases in our country are devastating but Alzheimer’s is uniquely impacting the South Florida community. Thirty five percent (35%) of the population in South Florida is over the age of 65, nearly 4x the national average. The average is 9% in each state and Florida is 17.5% over 65. This is significant because 1 in 11 men and 1 in 6 women will be diagnosed with Alzheimer’s over the age of 65 and women are 2x more likely to suffer from Alzheimer’s than breast cancer!
Also, mainly women are caring for those suffering from Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia, which has other costs for the work force, in terms of personal stress and lost work hours. The cost of Alzheimer's is truly a human and financial tragedy in our country. Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias cost American businesses at least $61 billion a year, just in lost productivity, related to employees providing care for individuals with Alzheimer’s or other dementias. In terms of actual dollars, the cost of Alzheimer's will reach over $183 billion this year alone.
In just two years since its creation, under Ms. Polani's leadership, the Boca Walk is the #1 Walk to End Alzheimer's in South Florida, with over 3,000 participants and helped the chapter raise for the first time more than One Million Dollars!
Our motto is to live life to the fullest,
while helping others do the same!
