Personable, reasonable and smart
I met Mr. Conte at a fundraiser years ago not knowing that I would be in need of his services. There were changes in my circumstances and I needed to update my will and prepare a trust. I remembered Mr. Conte who made everything easy for me to understand and cover my needs in the present and the future. He treated me like family and was attentive to my needs. Best of all he 'knows his stuff". I highly recommend him.

Review of Attorney
Paolo Conte came recommended to me from a family member. I feel extremely fortunate to have someone like Paolo work on my family's behalf. He is genuine, smart, prompt and kind. Paolo has made difficult decisions seem easier and seamless and took the stress off of us in difficult times. Paolo is extremely responsive which is so hard to find today. I can highly recommend Paolo to all my family and friends, and will do so.

ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL
I had interviewed 4 elderly law attorneys before meeting Paolo and it was like saving the best for last. Paolo did everything he said he would from going to my Uncle's home for his signature to getting the COOP's attorneys to act promptly. He explained everything and was always there if any questions kept up. I would recommend Paolo to anyone, you will not be disappointed!!

Paolo created a trust for my mother's apartment. We needed this very quickly and he was able to do this without any issues. Very nice person to deal with and would highly recommend.

Impressive First Impression
I called Paolo the to have a consultation regarding an adult guardianship matter. Paolo took the time to explain what the landscape of the process would like as well as a realistic time frame and cost. In my short interaction with Paolo, he showed himself to be very professional knowledgable and transparent. So transparent that he turned away potential work because he knew he couldn’t deliver on the time line I needed. I can see why he is so highly rated.

Truly Gifted Attorney
Paolo was a gift to us during our plans for retirement. He is patient and kind and is extremely knowledgeable about Elder Law. He helped us secure the title of our home and will continue to help us secure our various money accounts to keep them safe. We have been working as a team with Paolo and he is patient with our emails and phone calls. He has become a friend and a trusted advisor. Thank you Paolo

Best lawyer for estate planning and elder law!
Paolo is the master with elder law, wills and trusts. He is patient and easy to understand. He spent plenty of time with my mother and I explaining our options and it was a very comfortable process. He cares about his clients and makes sure they are well taken care of. I highly recommend working with Paolo.

Alexander Rallis -
As a Successful 30 year NYS Licensed Realtor, I always advise my clients upon initial purchase of a home to have life insurance to at least cover mortgage and burial expenses and prepare a Will and/or Trust to avoid lengthy probate in case of the unexpected sale of that home. I finally took my own advice and upon investigating the proper attorney and recommendations , I chose Paolo Conte. Paolo came to our home in Riverdale and spent the time we needed to understand the process of Wills and Trust. After this quite lengthy time with us and determining his fees, we hired him on the spot ( just had a good sense ) We were not disappointed, after lengthy emails and discussions Paolo transformed our requests into the legal language necessary to create the proper Wills and Trusts we desired. I must say this was not easy for him , because we went 3 Generations deep with multiple disbursement of our funds not only for our present family but also future family members that might be born. This was all accomplished through Wills and Trusts that Paolo created to insure our families financial security and insure our future welfare. Magically this was signed sealed and delivered in a very timely fashion to us, and one in which Paolo explained to our children as well. So what do we think of Paolo Conte, just ask the 2 more families I just recommended and are using Paolo Conte , just in the last 2 months since Dec, 2018 when our Wills & Trusts were completed. Through, knowledgeable, smart enough to investigate if not sure, patient, hand holding and just a nice Guy - I guess those are the best ways to describe Paolo Conte , our lawyer for generations upon generation to come.

Awesome Lawyer and Individual
Paolo Conte was very responsive to all my questions and concerns about my parents living trust and explained the difference between Medicare and Medicaid. He took the time to explain to me the different tax limitations for the living trust. What are seniors entitled to in Medicare. I must honestly say Paolo was with me in every step explaining in simple terms the different scenarios and options my parents will have in the future. Paolo thank you for providing me with excellent services and a detailed explanation of the health benefits that are available to my parents. I would highly recommend Paolo Conte as an experience elder care professional.

Excellent attorney
Paolo is a terrific attorney and a wonderful person. Trust and estate planning is a very complex and highly personal topic, with significant long-term consequences. After talking to numerous attorneys, when we had our consultation with Paolo, we knew we had found just the right attorney. As clients, we like to fully understand the details of the matters we are discussing, the different ways of doing things, and why we are selecting a particular option. In all of these areas, Paolo fully met and exceeded our expectations. His legal knowledge is comprehensive, his willingness and ability to explain things is commendable, and his warm personality is a complete delight. His sole focus in the entire interaction is to do the very best for the client. We give him our highest recommendation.

Medicaid issue
Paolo Conte was referred to me by another Lawyer. I had a complicated Medicaid issue to do with my mother. He explained to me step by step what needed to be done and he did it. He met all dead lines and put me at ease with his calm manner. Paolo walked me every step of the way. I would definitely recommend him to family and friends.

Excellent Lawyer!
I retained Paolo’s services for the purpose of settling a family estate. During the process, we encountered several obstacles. However with his expertise, patience and perseverance, he was able to quickly address each problem. His efficiency, calm demeanor, and excellent rapport made it a pleasure to work with him. I never had to wonder or ask about the progress of my case. Paolo explained the process and kept me informed every step of the way. He was always readily available to listen to my opinions and concerns. He was reassuring and supportive during my moments of doubt. Paolo made me feel as if my case was always a priority. I have dealt with other lawyers in the past. My experiences have been either mediocre or disappointing. However, I can honestly say that this was certainly not the case with Paolo. He has earned my utmost respect. I highly recommend Paolo to anyone in need of a professional, competent, reliable attorney. You will not be disappointed.

Patience, understanding and clarity...
Paolo was consulted on a number of issues for my family. The first being a medicare matter. His calm demeanor left my whole family at ease with their decision. So much so, that they are in the process of hiring him to handle their entire estate and all its intricate planning. If you are looking for a T&E attorney that truly cares about his clients, you must contact Paolo.

Would highly recommend
Paolo did a very nice job explaining everything very clearly to my husband and me. He said he would educate us so we could make an informed decision about how we wanted to plan our estate, and that's exactly what he did. He also gave a good example that was easy to remember with every scenario. Would highly recommend.
