Biography

Background and Legal Experience

I was granted the honor and privilege of attending the Bronx High School of Science, where I truly began to enhance the development of my left-brain logic and analytical skills to work in tandem with my right-brain creativity and expression. Thereafter, I graduated cum laude from The City College of New York, majoring in political science. That served as a springboard to obtaining a Juris Doctor degree from Columbia University Law School.

I went on to work diligently for more than three decades in a small Manhattan law firm, achieving full equity partner status and evolving into a transactional real estate attorney handling a wide variety of residential and commercial matters. For 24 years, I worked closely with the President of the New York Council of Cooperatives and Condominiums, and was entrusted with primary responsibility for shepherding and closing refinancings of multiple underlying coop mortgages. I have handled hundreds of coop and condominium transactions throughout the greater New York metropolitan area, and have developed a reputation as a problem solver who succeeds in closing often complicated deals. I am a member of the New York State and Nassau County Bar Associations and a member of the Nassau County Bar’s Real Property Law and Animal Law Committees.

When the time came that the law firm sadly ended its existence, I decided to boldly go where I had not dared to venture before. I struck out on my own as a sole practitioner, relying in part upon client relationships and professional friendships established over time, and have continued in that role for more than 6 years. Since my 2011 shift to sole practitioner status, I have closed on transactions aggregating over $100,000,000 in value.
