Legal Experience

Whether it is helping a client navigate the purchase or sale of their home or helping a client launch their business, I enjoy working with my clients to achieve their legal objectives.  My practice includes representing clients on a diverse array of legal matters, from litigation disputes to business and real estate transactions to guardianship applications.  My primary areas of focus include:

Commercial and Estate Litigation

I regularly represent clients in various litigation matters, including will and estate contests, contract and partnership disputes, and construction, real estate, and invasion of privacy cases, among others.

Guardianship Matters

As a result of disability, disease or injury, individuals may be unable to manage their personal or financial affairs and a guardian may be needed to assist them.  I represent clients in pursuing guardianship applications and am regularly appointed by courts as an attorney for alleged incapacitated persons, tasked with advocating for them.  My experience extends to contested guardianship cases where there is a dispute either over capacity or over the person who should serve as the incapacitated person’s guardian.

Real Estate & Land Use

I represent both buyers and sellers in residential and commercial real estate transactions throughout Northern New Jersey.  In addition, I represent landlords and tenants with lease drafting and negotiations, and with landlord/tenant evictions and ejectment proceedings.  Further, I regularly appear before land use boards in Bergen County for variance and site plan applications.

Wills, Health Care Proxies/Living Wills, Power of Attorneys

A Power of Attorney is a document that allows someone else to make financial decisions for another person.  Similarly, a Medical Power of Attorney, also known as a health care proxy, allows another person to make health decisions for someone in the event they are unable.  A Living Will instructs next of kin on end-of-life decisions.  Finally, a Will outlines how a person’s assets should be distributed upon death.  I work with clients to draft these estate documents, so they have the necessary documents in place in the event of their disability or death.

Business & Non-Profits

I work with startups, established businesses, community groups and social activists to start and grow their businesses and non-profits.  My corporate and general counsel related work includes reviewing and drafting contracts, negotiating employment agreements, addressing privacy and Internet matters, and advising clients on regulatory compliance issues.  I also represent clients with both the purchase and sale of businesses.
