Any recommendations I live in NJ. 

I have a S&W M19 and wanted to lighten the DA trigger.

I do not have a gunsmith recommendation but this is something you could do yourself if you are inclined.  I have had good results with changing out springs with lighter versions by Wolf.  I have also stoned all of the internal parts that rub together.  I DID NOT touch the sear/trigger/hammer parts where they mate together but just things like pivot points and rub points.  There is a video on YouTube that walked me through it and it was pretty simple.

Proper revolver trigger job not only lightens the pull (and smoothness) but also removes friction on components for a better smoother trigger return. This way you can use lowest trigger return springs and still have a fast consistent return. Doing that while not messing up timing is where experience comes in. In a revolver polishing pins, holes and pivot points does nothing but introduce slack
Youtube videos give a good start and OK job. Nothing wrong with that. Excellent job, however, takes a lot of time and several cuts not shown in the videos (as they don't want you to mess up the pistol and blame them).

I prefer the Wilson or Jerry Miculek spring kits to the Wolf.

I did a couple M14s in years past.  I have the Jerry Miculek video for working on the action which is very easy to follow, it made a great difference in smoothing the DA.  I've great results using Wolff power rib mainspring and their rebound spring kits.  A good gunsmith can certainly lighten and smooth the action further but found doing it myself provided very good results.

My brother is searching for a gunsmith to lighten the trigger on his new Colt Python.  Any suggestions?   He doesn't like my idea, of shooting it as-is for a while, so he hasn't yet shot the gun at all with live ammo.

I live in Cranford, Ironically the former home town of Austin Belhert. Belhert did amazing trigger jobs. No too far from Paramus.
