About me

I am a commercial real estate attorney who represents businesses and individuals in court litigating business disputes, contract enforcement actions, replevins for commercial lenders, summary dispossess matters in a commercial setting (representing landlords or tenants), commercial collection matters,  construction liens, disputes in connection with the sale or purchase of commercial real estate, and other real estate related matters. I have extensive experience trying cases in State and Federal courts in New Jersey. In addition, I have substantial experience in residential and commercial real estate transactions including contract and lease negotiations, and land use and zoning applications. Having this combination of transactional and litigation background is invaluable in advising clients who are trying to stay out of court, and representing those clients who happen to find themselves in court.
