Christine Andreoli, Esq.
Christine Andreoli, Esq. is a partner of Andreoli Law Group, P.C., located in Islandia, New York, a family-owned firm that she operates together with her husband and partner, Craig. For seventeen years, Christine focused her skills as an attorney on helping injured people defend their rights against insurance companies that denied them coverage on their claims. Christine’s efforts usually resulted in securing coverage and ensuring that her clients received the medical and financial damages to which they were entitled. She is now utilizing the knowledge and experience obtained from the field of insurance coverage defense in the fields of probate & estate administration and elder law.
Christine decided to join Craig at Andreoli Law Group, P.C. in 2009 because she, too, had a personal desire to help clients with elder law issues. As a child in the late 1970s, Christine watched her grandfather suffer for five years with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Neither Christine’s grandmother nor any of her other relatives knew they could receive care at home for her grandfather paid for by the government. The family had no choice but to put him in a state-run institution since no nursing homes would accept him at that time because he was incontinent. It was devastating to the family.
Moreover, shortly before joining the Andreoli Law Group, P.C., Christine’s father was diagnosed with dementia and, a few years after that, with Parkinson’s disease. Christine painfully watched her father deteriorate over eleven years, and her mother, his primary caregiver, became more and more stressed as her husband’s condition worsened. She finally agreed to get help caring for him at home, which Craig and Christine helped her obtain.
In an effort to help families avoid the hardships that both their families suffered, Christine assisted Craig with developing a process that structures and implements Medicaid pre-planning. Her devotion to helping others and her compassion for excellence is only dwarfed by her attention to detail.
Now, Christine focuses her efforts at Andreoli Law Group, P.C.. on helping their clients make sense of Probate and Administration proceedings, the legal process of court-supervised administration of an estate when someone dies with or without a Last Will & Testament, as well as with Community Care Medicaid and the use of Pooled Trusts.
Christine received her Juris Doctorate from St. John’s University School of Law in 1992 after receiving a Bachelor of Arts from the State University of New York at Binghamton in 1989. Christine is admitted to practice law before the Courts of the States of New York and Connecticut. She is a member of the Suffolk County Bar Association and is an active participant in the Elder Law, Surrogate’s Court, and Solo & Small Firm Practitioners’ Committees of the Suffolk County Bar Association. Christine also served for four years on her local PTA Executive Board in the positions of Corresponding Secretary and Recording Secretary.
Christine resides in Remsenburg with her husband and partner Craig and their three children.
