About Alex Pagnotta
Alex Pagnotta’s personal experience with the problems that can result from an inadequate estate plan along with his interest in helping others drove his desire to pursue the areas of estate planning and estate administration. He counsels individuals and families to preserve wealth and ensure that
their hard earned assets are passing to the correct individuals when they want and how they want. He does this by analyzing all of the assets and understanding the particularized needs of each client. He then makes a
recommendation regarding the best estate planning tools to meet and exceed the goals of the client. That recommendation could be establishing a trust, constructing a last will and testament, creating a tax plan, drafting
Power of Attorney Documents with healthcare directives, or some combination of these estate planning tools. Separately from estate planning, he also understands that handling the estate of a deceased relative or friend can
be a difficult time for all involved. As a result, Alex provides caring guidance through the probate or trust administration process. He
assists clients with claim forms, gathering an inventory and accounting for all of the assets, and making distributions to beneficiaries after
all expenses have been paid and all taxes completed. His guidance in assisting clients through this process in invaluable.
Alex is admitted to practice law in the state of Maryland. He is a member
of the Estates and Trusts, Tax Law, and Disability Rights Sections and recently joined the Prince George’s County State Bar Association. Before joining SinclairProsser Law, Alex worked as an intern for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
