For almost three decades, Anthony J. Enea Esq. has tirelessly worked to protect the rights of seniors, the disabled, and their families. As one of the pioneers of the practice of elder law, he quickly realized the need for legal assistance in the fields of elder law, Medicaid and long term care planning, Medicaid applications, guardianships, and special needs planning at the inception of his practice of law. 

 “Our firm has a history of protecting clients who have been overwhelmed by the costs associated with long-term care, and the ravages of Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s, MS, dementia, and other neuromuscular illnesses,” says Enea. “Clients consult with us not only when they wish to prepare a last will or trust, but also when they or their loved ones are facing the prospect of losing everything—which can often mean the loss of assets numbering in the hundreds of thousands.” 

Enea’s groundbreaking work in elder law extends from his practice to his prestigious work with numerous professional associations. In 1992, Enea co-founded the Westchester County Bar Association’s (WCBA) Elder Law Committee. He is a past president and founding member of the New York chapter of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA), where he currently serves as a member of the organization’s Council of Advanced Practitioners. Enea is also a past chair of the New York State Bar Association’s (NYSBA) Elder Law Section and a former member of the Executive Committee for the NYSBA’s Trusts and Estates Section, where he served as vice-chair for the Committee on the Elderly and Disabled. Enea is a past president of the WCBA and the current president of the Westchester County Bar Foundation.

Additionally, Enea is a recent recipient of the “Above the Bar Award” as the leading elder care attorney in Westchester County. This award is presented by the Westchester County Bar Association, Pace Law School, the Westchester Women’s Bar Association, the Westchester County Bar Journal, and the firm of Citrin Cooperman. He is also a Top 25 Super Lawyer in elder law in 2015.
