As a Senior Citizen, I needed an attorney who could address all my concerns, not only my Last Will and Testament, but Power of Attorney, Health Care Proxy and Living Will. I found Al very helpful and patient in answering my questions, he returned my calls promptly and he also camE to my home on L. I. To discuss all of the above mentioned documents. I have and will continue to recommend him to my friends, Al is extremely knowledgeable in Elder Law which is important to Seniors.
Mr. Polizzotto is very professional and detail oriented. He explains legal matters in a way you can understand and always makes you feel comfortable. My family and I have seen him several times in the last 15 years for Wills, Trusts, Elder Law advice, Deed Transfers and Medicaid planning. He has always confidently guided us in the right direction. I would highly recommend his legal services.
In October 2013 I spoke with Mr. Polizzotto concerning having my sister who had a criminal record removed as Coexecutor of my parents' estate. He stated that he required a $7, 500.00 retainer. After I decided to retain him, I received a call from his young associate, Ms. Cindy Cheung. That was my first and last phone call from her. The remainder of our communication was through emails. After three months and $5,975 in charges, she did not have a petition filed with the Court. Each time she submitted something to the Surrogate Court, the Court sent it back (or so she said). I spoke with Mr. Polizzotto on several occasions about my concerns. He assured me he would follow up with her and get back with me. He never did.
After receiving a motion from my sister's attorney to have me removed as Coexecutor, in total frustration, I dismissed Mr. Polizzotto's associate and retained another attorney. In two weeks my new attorney had a filed petition and a hearing before the Judge with my sister at the cost of $3,081.
I do not recommend that anyone retain Mr. Polizzotto or any associate of his firm. Their incompetence can be very costly.
Alfred is a great attorney. You are in good hands with him. My family has used him on a number of occasions and was very please with him. He has helped me with several matters as well. I found him very reliable and always able to answer any question thrown at him. He really is an expert in his field that you can trust.
