I enjoy helping individuals solve financial problems. The rules and regulations in bankruptcy, and the requirements of residential real estate, make sense to me after years in the finance industry.
I encourage clients to learn about legal issues. It helps them decide whether they need professional assistance, and what services to expect from an attorney.
I have not had occasion to review documents prepared by a client.
I am not available to coach pro se litigants.
I served as the Chairman of the New York City Industrial Development Agency when David Dinkins was Mayor. When George Pataki became Governor, I served for two years as Deputy Commissioner of the Division of Housing and Community Renewal. For ten years, I was Vice President of Corporate Finance at Salomon Brothers, Inc
I have significant experience in the financial services industry and in government. I have even more experience in life, in general. I have experienced many of the personal challenges presented by my clients.
I enjoy assisting clients directly and handle nearly every client contact personally, employing assistance of an in-house paralegal for document preparation and marketing.Personal interests:
I have traveled widely, especially in South America. I enjoy downhill skiing and swimming. I am learning to play golf.
