Westchester County, N.Y. (April 14, 2021) – Pace University’s Elisabeth Haub School of Law is pleased to announce a scholarship gift of $25,000 from elder law attorney Anthony J. Enea, Esq., a 1985 Haub Law graduate and managing member of Enea, Scanlan & Sirignano, LLP in White Plains and Somers, NY. The Anthony J. Enea, Esq. Elder Law Scholarship will make awards to a fifth-semester third-year student who has excelled in elder law courses in their first two years of law school at Haub Law.
“We are grateful for the generosity of esteemed attorney Anthony J. Enea in providing this scholarship,” said Haub Law Dean Horace Anderson. “Anthony has dedicated his career to elder law and this scholarship will lend support to students at Haub Law who share the same interest in protecting the rights of seniors, the disabled, and their families. We are honored to have the support of Anthony as a friend, alumnus of Haub Law, and member of our Board of Visitors.”

“I am honored and privileged to have the opportunity to establish the Anthony J. Enea, Esq. Elder Law Scholarship at the Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University,” said Anthony J. Enea. “The Law School taught me the importance of giving back to our legal community. My decades of involvement in both the State and Westchester County Bar Associations, as well as the lectures I give and the articles I write, are directly attributable to my desire to give back and help mentor.”
An “AV” Rated Preeminent Attorney (Martindale-Hubbell) and strong leader in Westchester’s legal community, Mr. Enea is president of the Westchester County Bar Foundation and chair of the New York State Bar Association’s 50+ Lawyers Section.
