I am a solo practitioner with a general practice in Rockland County.
My areas of practice include Criminal Defense, Traffic Tickets, Debt Collection, Civil Litigation, Real Estate, Landlord Tenant matters and more.
I started my legal career as a prosecutor at the Rockland County District Attorney's Office. As a Senior Assistant District Attorney, I gained experience handling a wide array of criminal matters, from petty offenses to serious felonies. I also supervised drug cases and was the ADA assigned to the Rockland County Narcotics Task Force.
I left the RCDA to become a Special Agent with the FBI, where I was awarded the Fidelity Bravery Integrity award. I investigated White Collar Crime in the New York City office.
In 1999, I entered private practice as a solo practitioner. I have over 11 years of experience handling many different areas of law.
I can bring Experience, Integrity and Advocacy to your case.

It is without hesitation that I endorse Jay Golland. He is an extraordinary attorney that possesses vast knowledge on the areas he practices. I have worked with Jay on many cases, and he handles the majority of my real estate matters. He is a top-notch attorney, who communicates well, and is very influential in our legal community.
