I am a solo practitioner who provides personal and detailed attention to individuals and companies who either seek approvals from government or who must defend themselves against enforcement action by government.
My main concentrations are:
Land use & zoning law: I appear before government agencies to obtain approvals for property owners
Administrative law, trials & hearings: I represent individuals and companies who must appear at hearings or trials scheduled by government agencies
Licensing & disciplinary proceedings: I defend licensed individuals and companies who the government is trying to discipline
Landlord & tenant and co-op and condo law: I provide representation in disputes and advise both owners and boards
I have a diverse professional background, having worked in the legal staff of a labor union (NYSUT), as Deputy General Counsel of the NYC Buildings Dept. and in several law firms prior to starting my own private practice in 1991.
