Lisa D'Agostino Lawyer Profile

Biography

My name is Lisa A. D’Agostino and I grew up in Brooklyn, New York. My mother is a beautician and my dad is a retired New York City Sanitation Worker.

I graduated from Bishop Kearney High School. During high school, I was a cheerleader and worked part-time at various retail stores.

I wanted to stay close to home for college so I enrolled at City University of New York, Staten Island College. I’d always wanted to be an attorney so right after graduation from college, I accepted a position as an intern, then as a paralegal, in the Queens County District Attorneys Office. I took these positions to ensure that I really did want to have a career in law. They do not teach you in school what it is like on a practical level so I wanted to have that experience prior to entering into law school. The work was so challenging and rewarding…and it confirmed that a career in law was the right choice for me.

In order to become an attorney, I had to attend a law school. At the time I was applying to law schools, the applications were up 60% so the standards for acceptance were much higher than normal. I decided to apply out of state because I wanted to attend a better rated law school. I researched law schools that had a curriculum focused on general law and practical skills and that is how I chose Nova Southeastern University.

While in law school, I worked for Weinstein & Associates, a personal injury firm that also handled no-fault cases as well. It was a good way to learn how to do legal research and how to write motions.

While studying for the NY Bar Exam after college, I worked for Stephen A. Spinelli & Associates, a general litigation office. The office focused an many different areas of law and it was a good way to learn and gain exposure in many different areas of law.

After passing the Bar Exam, I went to work for Robert J. Kurre & Associates, an elder law and trust and estates firm. I focused exclusively on estate planning because I believed everyone has a need for an estate plan…and that makes this area of law recession proof.

In 2008, I joined this firm and in March, 2011, was promoted to Partner.

Much of the work I do here centers on family law & estate planning but I also work in Commercial & Civil Litigation, Personal Injury, Bankruptcy, Landlord – Tenant Litigation, Criminal Defense & Real Estate Law.
