Attorney Henrietta Feldman focuses her solo practice in Palm Beach, Florida, on residential and commercial real estate. Henrietta Feldman also serves the community by mentoring high-risk children and teenagers.

Several occupational categories exist for persons wishing to help troubled youth: social workers, guidance counselors, outreach workers, and teachers.

Youth and family social workers generally have bachelor’s-level professional degrees. In addition to counseling, they locate resources for physical needs, such as food and housing. They work for organizations such as schools, non-profits, and walk-in clinics. Their contributions range from anti-gang violence training and substance abuse prevention to family problems and career choices.

Located in public and private schools, guidance counselors deal with problems that hinder learning. State-licensed and holding bachelor’s and often master’s degrees, they also address family dynamics, academic problems, and behavioral issues such as suicide. Guidance counselors additionally assist in selecting vocations and by giving standardized tests.

Outreach workers meet with troubled youth on their turf in recreational facilities and the streets. They strive to engage their clients in dealing with issues such as gun violence and drugs. They also advocate for them with local organizations and families. Outreach workers may have bachelor’s degrees in human services, but some do not have a post-secondary education.

Teachers often do more than hand out grades. They are sometimes the first to identify at-risk youth. Frequently serving as encouragers, teachers often spend time outside of school hours to mentor and serve as positive examples. Youth who would not ordinarily seek help from other professionals will sometimes go to their teachers for assistance.


Protect Yourself Legally When Purchasing or Selling a Home

Purchasing or Selling a Home

An experienced real estate attorney, Henrietta Feldman practices out of her law office in Palm Beach, Florida. As an attorney who assists with residential real estate, Henrietta Feldman helps clients who are buying or selling a home.

Although it’s not mandatory to hire an attorney when you are buying or selling a home, it’s a good idea to do so. Real estate attorneys can help for several reasons. The main reason for hiring an attorney is they are able to protect your rights. Although you may know your basic rights as a homebuyer or seller, it’s best to have an attorney who can look over contracts and notice any red flags. The red flags may include your being responsible for all closing costs, the home being sold as-is, or other issues that may be buried deep in the contract that you may not have thought to check.

Additionally, real estate attorneys are well-versed in property law, and they know each of the title searches that must be done to make sure the person who is selling the home you’re interested in can do so legally. With an attorney by your side through this process, it makes for a less overwhelming experience as she or he knows which legal documents need to be filled out and when they should be submitted.
