About Vincent

Learn Vincent’s areas of practice.


Life Long Staten Islander, I am a graduate of Monsignor Farrell High School.   From there I entered St. Francis College on a full  academic scholarship.  I worked a full time job  through college and became the head of the regional training department for Acme Markets, a Supermarket chain that was based in Philadelphia PA at the time.  I then started working at the Kings County District Attorney's Office while in Brooklyn Law School. I graduated from Brooklyn Law and became an Assistant District Attorney in Kings County, Brooklyn, New York.  During my five years there I learned the art of trying a case.  I prosecuted numerous cases and obtained successful jury verdicts on many different types of cases from simple gun possession to murder.  Before I left the office I was promoted to  a Senior Trial Attorney.   


Thereafter I learned the Personal Injury business working as  a defense attorney for the insureds of USF&G, St. Pauls and Travelers Insurance Companies.  I then became of counsel to a firm in Staten Island, and opened my own practice in Staten Island.


I am a past President of the Staten Island Trial Lawyers Association.  I am actively involved in my community and giving back to it as the President of Neighborhood Housing Services of Staten Island, a non profit organization helping first time home buyers and those in need of help to avoid foreclosure. 


If you want an well seasoned and experienced attorney that will give you the attention you deserve, call me.

Practical guidance for which I was grateful
Vincent Albunio was always there with me when I had to face decisions as an executor of an estate. There were many unique problems with the estate I was handling and I frankly could not address the myriad issues involved. He answered each question in a straightforward, practical way and I was grateful for his guidance. The genealogy search was especially difficult for me because the deceased did not have a list and in many cases never met many of his cousins. Mr. Albunio advised me on dealing with the mortgage company which was invaluable to me. He is a wonderful, knowledgeable man as well as a lawyer.

Extremely Satisfied
I am exteremely satisfied with the service provided by Mr. Vincent Albunio. A situation had arisen, in which a family member required an attorney for representation, regarding a pending legal issue. Mr. Albunio was gracious enough to accept the case, despite his existing heavy case load. Mr. Albunio researched the pending charge and offered a number of options to combat the charge. A detailed explantion and outcome, was provided for each option. After a number of discussions the best option was chosen to combat the pending charge. Mr. Albunio provided outstanding representation during the court procedures, which resulted in a victorious verdict for the client.

Fantastic! Highly Recommended
Vincent Albunio is an excellent attorney who really goes above and beyond for his clients, I'd trust him with anything, do not hesitate to call him. I guarantee once you have used his service you too will look no further. He responds in an extreme timely matter, he is a very knowledge, trustworthy person. There is no other attorney that will work as hard for you. Perhaps the thing that impressed me most about Vincent was nothing was "sugar coated". He was very straight forward and told me what to expect each step of the way. Going thru the probate court as well as the sale of my home. From start to finish, Vincent kept me informed of each step and what the options were and what the risks were. There were no empty promises made just to keep the client happy which I know sometimes occurs when seeking counsel. He's done an excellent job in not only fighting FOR me, but also PROTECTING my interests! I highly recommend him for any estate matter needs you might have.

Lawyer with a heart
Mr. Albunio did an excellent job in drawing up my husband’s and my will on very short notice. He also went to bat for us when we faced almost immediate inaccessibility to our coop, due to no provisions being made for handicapped persons while the building’s elevator would be replaced over three months. AND he did it pro bono! My thanks to him. I recommend him highly!

Awesome Negotiator
Mr. Albunio is an awesome lawyer for many reasons. First, he will not lie to you at all but will do the best he can for your case. Second, he keeps his clients in the loop at all times and lastly, his manner of treatment is out of this world. He was very compassionate about my condition and treated my husband and I with respect at every turn, never minimizing my feelings. I especially like that he was very knowledgeable about his field of work and explained it to us so thoroughly and was able to help us understand the complexity of our case in layman terms. His concern for us and for my case was extraordinary, especially coming from a person who has such a busy schedule. All I can say is that I refer him to everyone and anyone who may have a need for a lawyer and if he cannot help them, he refers them to someone who can. I find that my experience with Mr. Albunio was one that I will treasure for all of my days.

Vincent is a competent lawyer who caters to his clients needs. I reached out to him and he evaluated my situation, set goals for me and executed a plan professionally in a time sensitive matter. He made me feel confident and relaxed with his representation throughout the experience. I would trust Vincent with all my future needs and refer him to all my friends and family. Thanks again Vincent for everything!!!!!!!!!

I had a very dire case, and a friend of mine highly recommended Vin. As soon as I met him, He eased my concerns and gave me a thorough breakdown of what I was facing, and how he was going to handle it. Vin was able to get my case dropped down to such a lesser charge, that I was in disbelief. He truly is worth every single penny. Thank you so much Vin. THANK YOU.
