Albert Pirro is a lawyer and lobbyist and is the ex-husband of American-born television host, author, and former New York State Judge, Jeanine Pirro.
His ex-wife Jeanine was the first woman to serve as a Westchester County Court judge.
His former boxer father worked as a truck driver while his mother worked as a waitress.
Marriage, Infedilty, And Divorce
Pirro met his ex-wife at Albany Law School. Pirro approached Jeanine, although he knew she was seeing someone else at the time.
Jeanine described him as the most generous and hardest-working guy she ever met.
They got married the year she graduated in 1975 and moved to Westchester.
As a hardworking man, Pirro soon became a leading estate lawyer in Westchester. He even represented Donald Trump in his attempt to purchase an island off New Rochelle in Long Island Sound.
At the same time, Jeanine went on to work in the Westchester district attorney’s office, where she became the head of its domestic violence unit.
The marriage, which seemed perfect from the outside, was not what it was like from the inside.
In 1983, he fathered a child with another woman while he was still married to Jeanine.
Pirro initially denied it, but later after the DNA test, it proved that he was the child's father. Their two children were born after that.
In 1999, when Pirro was charged with four counts of tax evasion and 28 counts of filing a false tax return for hiding over $1 million in personal income, Jeanine stood by his side, criticizing the investigation as invasive and hostile.
It became clear that she benefited from it as he financed her career. He was sentenced to 29 months in federal prison but served only 17 months as he was released early for good behavior.
In 2006, Jeanine was accused of wire trapping his boat to catch him cheating with his defense lawyer’s wife but claimed no tapping was done.
She then went on to explain that she was tired of having to justify her relationship with Pirro, which were personal choices she had made that required no explanation.
The couple announced their separation in 2007 after 32 years of marriage. Their divorce was finalized in 2013.
His ex-wife is 71 years old.
As a businessperson and a lawyer, Albert earns a hefty amount. His net worth is estimated to be more than $10 million.
His then-wife, Jeanine, has a net worth of $14 million. Her salary is $3 million per year.
A Last-Minute Pardon
Donald Trump issued a last-minute pardon in early 2021 as his final act as president.
The decision was taken 45 minutes before Joe Biden was sworn in office.
Trump pardoned 73 individuals and commuted the sentences of the other 70.
Albert was some of the lucky men who got a last-minute pardon.
The list included former campaign chief Steve Bannon, charged with defrauding political donors; rapper Lil Wayne; Australian politician Paul Erickson, who was accused of wire fraud; and former Mayor of Detroit Kwame Kilpatrick, who was charged with racketeering.
Father Of Three
Pirro is the father of three. His firstborn child, a daughter, was from his alleged relationship.
Pirro was ordered to begin child support in 1998 after a DNA test proved him to be her father.
He shares two children, a son, and a daughter, from his marriage to Jeanine.
Their firstborn child, daughter Christine Pirror, was born in 1985, while their son Alexander Pirror was born in 1989.
Jeanine, in an interview, said Pirro is a great father to her children.
