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
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 Westchester County
and have two children in college.

Attorney 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.
