About me

Mr. Anthony J. Enea has spent the past three decades protecting the rights of seniors, the disabled and their families. Named Westchester County’s Leading Elder Care Attorney at the Above the Bar Awards, Best Lawyers’ 2016 Elder Law “Lawyer of the Year” in White Plains, and a top 25 “Super Lawyer” for Westchester County in 2015, Mr. Enea fulfills clients’ planning needs by protecting their life savings from the overwhelming costs associated with long-term care and/or estate taxes. 

Mr. Enea was admitted to the bar in 1986 and soon recognized the growing demand for lawyers who understood, in depth, the legal issues that affected the growing aging population. Mr. Enea started his elder law practice shortly thereafter and became the co-founder of the Elder Law Committee for the Westchester County Bar Association and a founding member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys’ New York Chapter.

Mr. Enea is president of the Westchester County Bar Foundation and a fellow of the New York State Bar Foundation. A past chair of New York State Bar Association’s Elder Law Section, Mr. Enea has chaired/lectured several hundred continuing legal education programs and speaks regularly at public and private organizations across the region. He is a former Editor-in-Chief of the New York State Bar Association’s “Elder Law Attorney” and has contributed extensively to publications for the Westchester County and New York State Bar Associations.
