I have been practicing law since 1982 and focus my White Plains-based practice on real property transactions, land-use, zoning and real estate law, general and personal injury litigation, not-for-profit and religious corporations law, commercial and business-related transactions, mediation, and arbitration. I represent a variety of clients including individuals, developers, property and business owners, prospective purchasers and sellers, and not-for-profits throughout the Hudson Valley and Metropolitan Area.
The first 18 years of my career were spent as a trial lawyer and managing attorney for a boutique personal injury firm in New York City representing clients with severe personal injuries, including those involving medical/dental malpractice claims and traumatic brain injuries.
My commitment to community is a value that I hold dear. I am an active participant in community and civic affairs and presently serve on the Village of Rye Brook Ethics Committee. I sit on the Board of Directors of the Westchester Jewish Council where I chair its Combating Racism Committee. I previously served as Rye Town Prosecutor and was elected to three consecutive terms as a Trustee of the Blind Brook School District, Board of Education, serving two years as its President. Over the course of my 9-year tenure as a member of the Board of Education, I personally oversaw the creation of $40 Million operational budgets and multiple $15+ Million facility construction projects.
