Updating Note on 5/26/14: My practice today and since 2008 or 2009 has been centered on defending residential (1-4 unit) and commercial foreclosures in various counties in New York State as well as in other states.

My prior experience in a variety of commercial and other litigation fields enables me to defend foreclosures with a variety of defenses, including my substantial experience in cases involving antitrust, securities, trusts, fraud, distribution systems, usury, civil rights, chapter 11 bankruptcy and adversary proceedings, business torts, breach of contract, unjust enrichment, and appeals in the federal and state court systems, just to name some of the fields of my prior experience.

The legal fields in which I have this prior substantial experience:

  • representing plaintiffs in federal and state courts in contingent-fee litigation as to antitrust, civil rights, fraud, libel, predatory lending and employment cases.
  • representing defendants in federal courts in trademark, copyright, maritime, business tort, contract, fraud, defamation, and other commercial cases
  • representing defendants in federal courts as local counsel
  • representing plaintiffs or defendants in various other types of litigation the outcome of which is important to the clients - in other words, I was interested in handling almost any type of civil litigation except negligence, malpractice, small claims, matrimonials, and filing of bankruptcy proceedings
  • I did not and do not do transactional work such as setting up corporations, filing of copyright or trademark applications, or real estate closings
