The law firm of Enea, Scanlan & Sirignano, LLP, with offices in White Plains & Somers, N.Y., is pleased to announce that Westchester County elder law attorney Anthony J. Enea, Esq., member, has been selected by his peers for inclusion in the 29th edition of The Best Lawyers in America in the practice areas of Elder Law and Trusts and Estates. Lauren C. Enea, Esq., associate, has also been recognized in the 3rd edition of Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch in America.
An “AV” Rated Preeminent Attorney (Martindale-Hubbell, since 2002), Mr. Enea is the immediate past president of the Westchester County Bar Foundation, past chair of the New York State Bar Association’s Elder Law & Special Needs Section and 50+ Lawyers Section, and a past president of the Westchester County Bar Association. Named Westchester County’s Leading Elder Care Attorney at the Above the Bar Awards, Mr. Enea’s practice areas include wills, trusts & estates; elder law; Medicaid asset protection planning; Medicaid applications (home care and nursing home); special needs planning; and guardianships (Article 81 and 17-A).
“It’s an honor to be acknowledged by my peers, especially alongside my daughter, Lauren,” said Mr. Enea, who has spent more than 35 years protecting the rights of seniors, the disabled and their families. “At Enea, Scanlan & Sirignano, we’re able to make a real impact on people’s lives, stepping in at a time of need and anxiety to protect our clients’ life savings from the overwhelming costs associated with long-term care. Advanced planning is critical to sheltering one’s life savings from these tremendous costs.”
This marks the twelfth consecutive year Mr. Enea has been included in the Best Lawyers list. He was also recognized as a Best Lawyers® “Lawyer of the Year” in White Plains five times and has been named as one of Westchester County’s “Super Lawyers” annually since 2007.
An active member of local and state bar associations, Lauren Enea was appointed to the Executive Committee of the Westchester County Bar Association (WCBA) Trusts and Estates Section. She is also the co-chair of the WCBA New Lawyers Section, treasurer of the Columbian Lawyers Association of Westchester County, and chair of the New York State Bar Association Elder Law and Special Needs Section Publications Committee. Ms. Enea concentrates her practice on wills, trusts and estates; Medicaid planning; special needs planning; and probate/estate administration.
Ms. Enea received the 2020 Outstanding New Lawyer Award from the Westchester County Bar Association. She was also named a 2022 Wunderkind by 914INC, a Rising Star in the 2021 New York Metro edition of Super Lawyers, and was recognized with Westfair Communications’ 2019 Millennial Award.
Regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence in the United States, Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which more than 50,000 leading attorneys cast over five and a half million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
Recognition in a Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch list is based entirely on peer review and employs the same methodology that has made Best Lawyers the gold standard for legal rankings worldwide. These awards are given to attorneys who are earlier in their careers for outstanding professional excellence in private practice in America.
