Probating a loved one's estate can be challenging for many reasons. In addition to grieving the loss of your family member, you must navigate numerous legal processes that can be confusing under the best circumstances. In most cases, it is better to work with an experienced probate attorney to ensure that you do not make a mistake.
I am attorney Albert F. Pennisi, and I have been practicing estate, trust and probate law for more than 35 years. As the founder of and special counsel to Daniels Norelli Scully & Cecere, P.C., I have access to the firm's resources. This is important in cases that involve complex assets and litigation.
I also spent seven years as counsel to the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance for estate and gift tax matters, so I understand how the government handles these taxes. In this position, I worked on cases involving high net worth estates, sophisticated assets and numerous complex estate issues.
An Accessible Attorney With Extensive Experience
My practice includes all matters related to the probate and administration of estates, wills and trusts such as:
- Probate and estate administration
- Probate litigation, including will contests, kinship/cousin cases, undue influence and fraud, removal of fiduciaries and spousal rights of election
As your lawyer, I will be your advocate in Surrogate's Court and will work directly with you throughout the process. I keep my caseload manageable so I can give each client the time he or she deserves. In matters as emotional and contentious as probate, it is critical that you have access to your attorney when you need it. Clients receive my cellphone number so they can contact me directly.
