About me

Since 1977, my practice consisted of representing and assisting people and businesses in all matters, including public and private corporations, on both a civil and criminal level. My services have included public offerings, proxy fights, securities regulation, all phases of civil and criminal litigation, family law, estate law, guardianships, negotiation and drafting of a wide variety of agreements and transactions, in addition to general advice with regard to the customs and practices within various industries. I was also a Guest Commentator on COURT TV and an arbitrator. I am admitted to practice in New York and the federal courts, Southern and Eastern District, as well as the Second Circuit Court of Appeals.


 


Currently, I am special counsel to law firms in Los Angeles and New York, as well as operating my own office in Nassau County. When possible, I regularly perform pro bono work for the Volunteer Lawyers Project, Nassau/Suffolk Law Services, Inc. and the NYS Unemployment Insurance Appeals Board. I am also a member of the LAP Committee of the Nassau County Bar Association. I have several websites of interest:


1. A blog that discusses common legal problems which you can visit at http://jmpattorney.blogspot.com/
