Steven M. Adler

Long Island Estate Planning Attorney

Steven M. Adler

No one ever accused me of being a traditional New York lawyer. I understand that you are busy, your family is growing, you are planning for a life of prosperity, and that you value ease, convenience and efficiency. You want to know that you've made the best decisions for your family, and when it comes to your legal needs, you want your lawyer to be on the same page.

I have over 25 years of experience in the fields of estate planning, probate, real estate, business law and family law. Over the years, I have mastered the art of satisfying and retaining clients for life. I encourage communication with my clients. In fact, I repeatedly inform my clients that I am always available to answer their questions. I personally respond to most phone calls and e-mails on the same day.

Most legal work is now billed on a flat-fee basis and agreed to in advance, so there are never any surprises. Whether you retain my firm to prepare your estate plan, probate a loved one's will, purchase or sell your home or business, you can rest assured that you and your family are in good hands!

Outside of the office, I also lead an active lifestyle. I ride motorcycles in the summer and ski in the winter. I am a certified scuba diver and I love to travel whenever I can. I presently live in Suffolk County and have two grown children.

I was admitted to the New York State Bar in March 1989 and am the founding member of the Law Offices of Steven M. Adler, PLLC. I am admitted to practice law in the State of New York; the United States District Court, Southern and Eastern Districts; and the United States Tax Court. I attended the State University of New York at Albany (B.A. 1982) and Brooklyn Law School (J.D. 1988). I am an Accredited Estate Planner® (AEP®) by the National Organization of Professional Estate Planners (NAEPC). I am also a member of the American Bar Association and the Nassau County Bar Association. Finally, I am a licensed health and life insurance agent and a licensed real estate agent.

My well-rounded life experiences often prove beneficial to clients and come into play in the various cases I handle! For legal representation you can trust to represent you effectively, contact the Law Offices of Steven M. Adler, PLLC today!

Attorney Dolores A. Jannuzzi

Dolores A. Jannuzzi

I am an attorney with over 25 years of experience in the areas of Trusts and Estates, Business Succession Planning and Elder Law. Having spent all of my professional career practicing law on Long Island, I have created many estate and business plans for my clients, who often come back to see me to review and update their estate plans.

I have had the honor of not only getting to know my clients on a personal level but their children and extended families as well.

The best part of my job is meeting with clients on a regular basis as their families grow and their financial situations change. It is my job to see that every client walks out of this office not only with a state of the art estate and/or business plan that suits their changing individual needs, but one with which they are comfortable with and understand completely. It is very satisfying to know that a client is so pleased with the work I have done for them that they recommend me to their friends and family. There is no better test of one's professional ability and that is what I always strive for.

In my personal life, I was born and raised on Long Island and currently live in Northport with my two college age daughters. In my free time I cook for friends and family, practice yoga, and tend to my vegetable garden, unless I am doing the New York Times crossword puzzle!

I was admitted to the New York State Bar in 1987. I graduated Cum Laude from Shepard Broad Law Center at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida (J.D. 1986) and University of Miami, Coral Gables, Florida (B.A. 1983). I am also a member of the New York Bar Association and the Suffolk County Bar Association.

Client Services Director - Julie McDonald

As the Client Services Director my goal is to ensure that every client or potential client receives friendly, personal service.

I began my career in law as a Paralegal working on Asbestos cases. I took a break from law to stay home and raise my 3 children. During that time I was active in the PTA and served on the Board of Directors of The Center for Parents and Children which was a not-for profit parent education center. I also led small group discussions for The Center.

For the past 3 years, my focus has been Trusts and Estates, Elder Law and Real Estate. Before that I worked as both a Licensed Veterinary Technician and a Client Liaison for a large veterinary specialty hospital. I received a B.A. in Communications, Arts and Sciences from Queens College, a Paralegal Certificate from Baruch College and an A.S. from Suffolk County Community College.

In my free time I enjoy traveling, dancing, yoga, music, movies, theater and spending time with family and friends.
