Ganz & Hollinger A Professional Corporation

Ganz & Hollinger,P.C., Attorneys and Counselors at Law, is a two partner, full-service law firm with a general civil practice stressing several different areas of expertise and many facets of offering legal advice.

Firm Overview

Founded in 1980 by David L. Ganz, Jerrietta R. Hollinger and Teri Noel Towe, the firm outgrew its midtown office location and purchased space in a century old townhouse located in Yorkville on Manhattan's Upper East Side.

Because the firm is small, it specializes in personalized service. Each partner is almost always fully aware of what all the other lawyers in the office are doing. That way, it's easy for each lawyer to step in and help--without worrying about whom is familiar with a file. Partners in the firm work closely with associates, who are encouraged to work directly with clients to minimize costs and advance their professional development.

All attorneys and support staff at Ganz & Hollinger, P.C. have computer terminals to assist in doing computerized research, rapidly changing documents through the network file server, or sending electronic mail within the office to have an inquiry answered.
