Queens County Attorney Dominick A. DeRiso

I have more than 43 years of experience practicing trust and estates law. I greatly enjoy working with clients to solve their problems, putting decades of knowledge to use when crafting or executing estate plans. My range of experience includes both small and large complex estates.

I also provide other legal services in connection with estate planning and estate administration matters. I have a thorough understanding of commercial and residential real estate and leasing, limited liability company law, business law, partnership law, corporate law, transferring and selling assets, and buying and selling businesses.


I graduated with a B.A. from Fordham University in 1964. I then went on to receive my J.D. from St. John’s University in 1967.

Admitted to practice law in New York in 1968 and the District Court for the Eastern District of New York in 1972, I am a member of the:
