WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. (PRWEB) August 16, 2018
Westchester elder law attorney Anthony J. Enea, member of Enea, Scanlan & Sirignano, LLP in Somers and White Plains, has been named the Best Lawyers® 2019 Trusts & Estates “Lawyer of the Year” in White Plains. He has also been selected by his peers for inclusion in the 25th edition of The Best Lawyers in America in the practice areas of Elder Law and Trusts and Estates.
“It’s an honor to be recognized by my peers, particularly for work that I find so personally rewarding,” said Mr. Enea, who has spent more than 30 years protecting the rights of seniors, the disabled and their families. “My colleagues and I are able to make a real impact on people’s lives, stepping in at a time of need to protect our clients’ life savings from the overwhelming costs associated with long-term care.”
The “Lawyer of the Year” recognition is reserved for a single lawyer with the highest overall peer-feedback in a specific practice specialty and geographic location.
A strong leader in Westchester’s legal community, Mr. Enea is president of the Westchester County Bar Foundation, a past president of the Westchester County Bar Association, and a past chair of the New York State Bar Association’s Elder Law Section. He was named Westchester County’s Leading Elder Care Attorney at the Above the Bar Awards. Mr. Enea’s practice areas include elder law; Medicaid asset protection trusts; Medicaid applications (home care and nursing home); special needs planning; guardianships (Article 81 and 17-A); and wills, trusts and estates.

Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
This marks the eighth consecutive year Mr. Enea has been included in the Best Lawyers list, and the fifth time he has received recognition as a “Lawyer of the Year” in White Plains. Mr. Enea has also been named as one of Westchester County’s “Super Lawyers” annually since 2007.
