A welcoming hand to international clients:
Having practiced law for almost 29 years in Bergen County, New Jersey, in the immediate proximity to New York City, the center of international commerce and diverse demographics, I have broad and extensive experience in representing international clients and handling transactional matters on behalf of individuals working for foreign companies doing business in the United States, foreign business entitites, immigrants and dual nationals from Japan, Korea, China, Taiwan, Central and Eastern Europe and many other foreign countries. As an immigrant myself, born in Prague, Czech Republic, I have a special affinity for the dreams and aspirations of immigrants who want to succeed in America. I have seen first hand the entrepreneurial spirit in our local Asian community and have had the pleasure of assisting in their domestic and international business ventures. My experience in the nuances of international trade, along with my European roots, make me uniquely well positioned to assist individuals, institutions and business entities seeking an international presence.

Real Estate Negotiator:
Some disputes are better solved outside of the courtroom. As an effective mediator, I can guide negotiations to best protect your interests. By retaining an experienced mediator to strategize the contract negotiation process, you can often avoid disputes from arising at a later stage in the real estate transaction, and so save time, money and frustration.
