Probate Insight Backed By Decades Of Legal Experience

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 at best. 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 45 years. As the founder of and a special counsel to Daniels Norelli Scully & Cecere, P.C., I have access to a network of resources that you would find at a larger firm. 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.

The Answers You Need, When You Need Them

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 whenever they have a question.

My practice includes all matters related to the probate and administration of estates, wills and trusts such as:

  • Probate and estate administration guidance, including the administration of wills and trusts
  • Probate litigation representation, including will contests, kinship/cousin legal issues, 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 and attention he or she deserves.
