Claimed Lawyer ProfileSocial Media

Many of my clients operate large companies. Normally they need a personalized approach that they cannot receive in a large law practice. I listen. I give options. I try to give realistic expectations. I believe success is proper execution after a client makes an informed decision. Examples of reported decisions: Hill v. Estate of Avnet, 13 Misc.3d 1210(A), 824 N.Y.S.2d 754 (Defeated partners' claim against deceased client's estate), Archdeacon v. Town of Oyster Bay, 12 Misc.3d 438, 813 N.Y.S.2d 289 (Suffolk Sup. Ct. 2006) (Reversed town on Article 78), Glazer v. AA Premier Realty, Ltd., 294 F.Supp.2d 296 (E.D.N.Y. 2003) (Judgment under 9 USC§10(b) security fraud), Gehm v. New York Life Ins. Co., 992 F. Supp. 209 (E.D.N.Y. 1998) (Removal of ERISA claim under All Writs Act), Lamm v. Stevenson, 276 A.D.2d 531, 716 N.Y.S.2d 576 (2nd Dep't. 2000) (Reverse lower court on Adverse Possession claim), Novis v. Benes, 268 A.D.2d 464, 701 N.Y.S.2d 914 (2nd Dep't. 2000), Shawmut Bank, N.A. v. Lapidus, 209 A.D.2d 684, 619 N.Y.S.2d 946 (2nd Dep't 1994). Specialties: I operate a New York law practice concentrating on corporate transactions, contract litigation, real estate transactions, real property litigation, eviction proceedings, wills and related probate litigation, ERISA and insurance litigation, construction and commercial litigation.
