Great Estate and Animal Trust attorney.
I cannot recommend more highly Christina Panzarella and her colleague Christine Sammartino. Last year after dealing with another well advertised estate and animal trust attorney at great expense and to no avail, I was rescued by the two Christines. Within a WEEK they had the Last Will and Testament with Animal Trust, Power of Attorney and Healthcare proxy for my fairly complex estate ready for execution for less cost than the other attorney charged for doing nothing. During the many drafts and fine tuning of the estate documents they gave great advice with keen insight. ( The only paper I saw from other attorney was a Bill. )As an attorney myself, they have restored my trust in the legal profession with their excellent service, highest level of professionalism, easy accessibility and impeccable ethics. They are two true gems of the legal profession.

Very satisfied client
Christina took care of my will, health care proxy, power of attorney, and living will. She took time to review all my concerns and answered all my questions. I also had a situation that needed immediate attention and she was right on it and re-assured me all would be ok. I was very pleased with her office and services.

Professional,Curtious and Most Helpful Lawyer
I was in a situation that I was owed money and the lender wasn't willing to pay me back . My options were quickly given to me and I felt so confident that she would do her best to help me. I was relieved of the gloom of feeling helpless by her knowlege and professionalism . Christina wrote two letters which were so powerful and detailed and were quickly sent to my formidable adversary. Upon receiveing the letters he changed his mind and hand delivered the amount owed to me. I was successful because of Christina Panzarella and would use her again for all and any of my legal matters.

She clearly is a zealous advocate for her clients, and is tireless in pursuing her client's interests."
