My primary areas of practice are: commercial leasing; purchases, sales and financings of commercial properties; and purchases and sales of individual coop and condominium apartments and homes.

Practice areas also frequently include: construction contracts; contracts for the supply of goods and services to hotels and restaurants, and representation of coop and condo sponsors
and boards.

My clients include landlords and tenants of commercial properties (offices, retail stores, restaurants, etc.); real estate developers and investors; hotel owners; and individual purchasers and sellers of homes. New clients generally are referred by existing clients, other attorneys, and real estate brokers.

I maintain offices in midtown Manhattan, and I live in the Clinton Hill section of Brooklyn and Head-of-the-Harbor, Long Island. I handle matters throughout New York City, Long Island and beyond. I look forward to meeting you and helping you with your transaction.
