Anthony Enea Honored by Columbian Lawyers of Westchester

On Friday, June 17, elder law attorney Anthony J. Enea, Esq., managing partner of Enea, Scanlan & Sirignano, LLP of White Plains and Somers, was honored with the Honorable Richard J. Daronco Distinguished Service Award at the Columbian Lawyers Association of Westchester County’s 33rd Annual Dinner Dance. The event, held at The Fountainhead in New Rochelle, raised funds for the non-profit’s scholarship program, which awards thousands annually to deserving Italian-American law students.

The Honorable Richard J. Daronco Distinguished Service Award is named for the former deceased Justice of the Supreme Court of Westchester County. At the time of his assassination in 1988 by the father of a litigant, Judge Daronco was sitting as a federal Judge for the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. The service award presented in his name recognizes an attorney or jurist who has given unselfishly and served as an outstanding example and asset to Italian-Americans.

This year’s award recipient, Anthony J. Enea, was presented with a special proclamation from Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino declaring June 17th to be Anthony J. Enea, Esq. Recognition Day. Named Westchester County’s Leading Elder Care Attorney at the Above the Bar Awards and Best Lawyers’ 2016 Elder Law “Lawyer of the Year” in White Plains, Enea has spent the past three decades educating and protecting the rights of seniors, the disabled and their families.

“It is an honor and a privilege to be recognized for work that I find so personally rewarding,” said Enea. “Judge Daronco was a highly regarded Italian-American jurist and someone I greatly admired.”

A strong leader in the Westchester legal community, Enea has been a member of the Columbian Lawyers Association of Westchester County since 1990 and currently serves as Second Vice President. He is president of the Westchester County Bar Foundation, past chair of the New York State Bar Association’s Elder Law Section, and a former president of the Westchester County Bar Association. His practice areas include elder law; Medicaid planning and applications; Medicaid nursing home and home care; special needs planning; wills, trusts and estates; and guardianships (contested/uncontested).

Past recipients of the Honorable Richard J. Daronco Distinguished Service Award include the Honorable Janet DiFiore, Chief Judge of the State of New York and the Court of Appeals; Carl A. Vergari, former Westchester County District Attorney; the Honorable Mario Cuomo, former Governor of the State of New York; the Honorable Francis A. Nicolai, former Chief Administrative Judge for the Ninth Judicial District of the State of New York; and many other distinguished Italian American jurists and attorneys.
