KIMBERLY J. GALLO
Senior Associate Attorney


Kimberly knew she wanted to be a trust and estates attorney at an early age. When her father passed away unexpectedly while she was in college, she was left to handle his estate. The following year, Kimberly took a college course in trust and estates law which solidified her desire to pursue a career helping others with trust and estate matters. And the rest, as they say, is history.

Kimberly prides herself on developing close relationships with our clients at Lavelle and Finn. Understanding first hand that they are going through one of the most difficult times in their lives, Kimberly provides her clients not only with knowledgeable legal advice but, just as important, a compassionate listener. Throughout her career, Kimberly’s compassion has helped clients with both the emotional pain of losing a loved one, while also handling the financial and legal challenges of an estate.

Her work experience serving as a bank trustee and executor at a major local community bank provided her with invaluable hands on experience. This wealth of knowledge allows Kimberly to provide practical guidance to our clients who are often left with the responsibility to serve in these critical roles, with little or no background in the task.

On a personal level, Kimberly resides in Gansevoort with her husband, Anthony, who she started dating in high school. They have two young daughters, Giuliana and Gabriella, who fill their days with lots of soccer, dance, smiles and laughs.

Demonstrating her compassion for others, Kimberly administers a volunteer clinic through the Adirondack Women’s Bar Association and meets with victims of domestic violence monthly and provides free legal advice to apprise them of their rights.
