I have represented clients regarding the full range of New York Trust and Estate issues including Probate and Intestate Administration proceedings, Estate Administration, Kinship matters, Will Contests, Fiduciary Accountings, Trusts, and Estate taxes. I have also assisted clients with New York Surrogate’s Court proceedings relating to problems such as a spouse’s elective share, discovery of decedent’s assets and breach of fiduciary duty. It is very common that a relative dies and the family needs immediate help to probate a Will to obtain the appointment of an Executor or an Estate Administrator. Other frequent concerns involve the protection of a decedent's assets where there is a breach of fiduciary duty or a Will needs to be contested. As a New York estate planning attorney, I am always appearing in the Surrogate's Court throughout New York to represent my client's interests and promote the settlement of estate affairs.

Estate PlanningWhether you are a first-time home buyer or more experienced in the real estate world, I provide guidance as to all aspects of a real estate transaction such as contracts, closings, title insurance and mortgage financing. I have represented clients in matters involving cooperatives, condominiums, single and multi-family homes and leases. As a New York real estate attorney, I have represented clients in Court on matters such as the validity of deeds, encroachments, constructive trusts and landlord-tenant eviction issues such as primary residence, non-payment proceedings, hold-over proceedings and other lease disputes. I speak with clients all the time regarding the issues they are facing when buying or selling a home or other property. I understand the importance of reviewing papers with clients concerning cooperative or condominium units such as offering plans and financial statements. When a client is involved in a real estate deal, I discuss with them the details of the contract regarding such matters as a mortgage contingency clause, the closing date, and property conditions. I also analyze all financial requirements so that a closing will occur smoothly and efficiently.

With regard to landlord-tenant cases, I represent my client's interests in the landlord-tenant courts throughout New York City. Non-payment proceedings and holdover actions can be complex. However, I work with my clients to try and simplify these matters and obtain a quick resolution whenever possible.

Article 81 of New York’s Mental Hygiene Law grants authority to the Court to appoint a Guardian to assist in situations where an individual cannot manage personal or financial needs due to incapacity. Guardianship matters under Article 81 can become litigious since family and friends might contest:

  1. the need for a Guardian;
  2. the scope of the Guardian’s power;
  3. the individual chosen to be the Guardian.
  4. a Guardianship accounting.
