Affordable, Accessible And Effective

Our focus as attorneys is to provide effective and accessible legal services to individuals and businesses; our focus as individual attorneys and what sets us apart is that we take the time to listen.

No two cases are the same. The slightest variation in facts can have a bearing on the legal outcome. It is a priority then for us to delve deeply into the nuances the facts present. We work with our clients closely to arrive at a workable solution as quickly and efficiently as possible.

We fully understand the stresses and strains —be it financial or otherwise—that are part and parcel of confronting messy legal issues. We approach our clients with the personal care and concern they deserve. Though we are a small firm, the breadth of our collective legal experience that we can tap into is enormous. Our specialties extend to many areas of the law including real estate, real estate financing, commercial litigation, commercial financing arrangements, personal injury litigation, General Municipal Law Section 205 (a) and (e) actions, workers compensation, disability and social security matters, and ERISA/employee benefits.

We welcome the opportunity to achieve the best possible outcome for you. We look forward to serving you!
