Biography

My practice is a holistic one. Rockaway is a small exurban town. As such, a certain neighborly attitude is required which includes pro bono work, volunteerism and maintaining ones reputation as a fair, just, and equitable advocate among clients and the community. There is also time to play and enjoy doing things that are of interest. I volunteer in a local soup kitchen, shoot skeet (but not hunt), and study Americana. I especially enjoy my six grandchildren who reside nearby. I am a graduate of Boston Latin ('60), Boston University ('64), Rutgers Law School ('67), and studied ASL (American Sign Language) and Deaf culture at Union County College.
For the convenience of my clients, I may be reached 24/7 by dialing (973) 479-3794.

Q. I want to break my lease early....and dont have anything in the lease explaining and management is not telling me
A: A lease is a contract between the owner of property and the party who wishes to occupy or utilize the premises for the purposes and duration agreed to in the lease. The lease then is a contract. Inherent in every contract is the potential of one party to refuse, for whatever reason, unilaterally to adhere to the terms. Every right has a corresponding obligation which give the other party to seek to enforce the terms of the lease (contract) to seek money damages so compensation is received for the losses suffered. As a tenant your potential damages can be determined by the number of months remaining until maturity times the monthly rental. If you choose to unilaterally to vacate the premises, the landlord has an obligation to attempt to mitigate (lessen) damages by finding a new tenant. Should the new rent is greater than your current rent, you receive none of the overage. If less, you will remain responsible for the difference.
