  • Christopher Salvatore Scarcella

    I'm interested in joining the prestigious American Academy of Estate Planning Attorneys, and was encouraged to reach out to Mr. Bonfrisco. I did so, and am very grateful for his insight. An attorney's time is valuable, and he was very generous with it and open with me regarding his experiences and his private practice. A class act, and an asset to the community.
