My law firm represents clients with confidence, skill and expertise. We concentrate on resolving business and bankruptcy problems--including many types of commercial contract disputes and debtor and creditor-related lawsuits and adversary proceedings--in the federal and state courts of New York and New Jersey. Whenever possible, the firm's attorneys explore alternative means of conflict resolution, including arbitration and mediation.
Our goal is to help clients achieve the best possible results when dealing with complex legal challenges coming from business transition, loan defaults, M&A, breach of contract, partner, shareholder, and LLC control contests, and other challenges. We are crisis managers and trusted advisors.
Weltman & Moskowitz, LLP leverages resources and connections to serve lenders, credit unions, property owners, developers, managers, contractors, business owners, executives, investors, professionals, practice groups, and individuals in court rooms and board rooms throughout NY, NJ and LI.
I bring to Weltman & Moskowitz, LLP my personal commitment to do the right things in the right order with the right people. On target and on time.
Client service begins with active listening. I trained as a journalist and writer and know the importance of asking the right questions. Communication skills enable me to create sophisticated legal solutions, just as I used to develop marketing and PR programs for food and apparel brands, hospitality chains and nonprofits.
Solid writing skills translate to winning legal arguments made persuasively and creatively, while always watching the budget.
