About Me

I focus my practice on complex litigation with a concentration in commercial and industrial real property tax assessment law. I have represented numerous business clients and several municipalities with respect to real estate tax assessment challenges. The type of properties involved include shopping centers, office buildings, apartment complexes, banks, factories, warehouses, public utilities including hydroelectric plants and reservoirs, medical buildings and substance abuse rehabilitation facilities. I have  lectured on this subject for various groups including the Business Owners Management Association (BOMA). I also handle complex commercial, estate and corporate litigation matters.  I'm also the managing partner  Cooper Erving & Savage LLP one of the oldest law firms in the United States.

On a personal note I am an avid book collector of modern first editions.

I have an extensive collection of the works of John Steinbeck and several other prominent  20th century authors.  I have presented at international conferences relating to John Steinbeck and his works.
