I have significant experience as an attorney handling all aspects of real estate, from commercial and residential transactions to real estate disputes.
I am experienced in the full range of commercial real estate transactions, from purchases and sales, including 1031 transactions, to rentals on behalf of both lessors and lessees. Whether I represent a seller or buyer, or a landlord or lessee, I bring many years of experience to the transaction. Commercial transactions are not simple. You need to enter such transactions carefully and conduct full diligence before making any commitment.
For the past 10 years, I have acted as legal counsel and managing agent of a shopping center in Hillsborough, New Jersey. I negotiate and draft leases on behalf of the landlord, ensure the landlord meets maintenance requirements, negotiate and oversee capital improvements, and see that the center operates properly and profitably. This experience has proven invaluable to my commercial real estate clients.
Let me guide you through the thicket of commercial real estate transactions in New Jersey.
This office has handled thousands of residential real estate closings, on behalf of both buyers and sellers. We have seen just about every issue that you can imagine, and many you cannot. If you are buying or selling your home, you deserve the same attention required of larger commercial transactions. This is precisely the service I can provide. You can trust me and my experienced staff to bring your transaction to a successful and satisfactory conclusion.
Real Estate Disputes
I am often asked to resolve disputes arising out of real estate transactions. My experience with transactions provides me invaluable insight into how transactions can go wrong. Whether you have just entered a lease for your business or bought a home, you can rely on me to provide competent and timely assistance if you believe you have been wronged.
Land Use in New Jersey
Developing Your Property
It has become increasingly difficult to pursue even minor development projects in New Jersey. Do you require use or bulk variances? Does your property present environmental challenges, such as wetlands? Will your proposal increase traffic in the area? Do you face resistance from neighbors, competitors or others? Are you familiar with the land use boards, their members and how they are likely to treat your application?
Any site plan will require the assistance of engineers. If you are seeking a use variance in your zone, you will most definitely require a planner. If you face environmental issues, you will need an environmental consultant familiar with New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection regulations and regulators. If your proposal will generate significant traffic issues, you will also need a traffic consultant familiar with New Jersey Department of Transportation regulations and personnel.
Who puts all this assistance together? A competent land use attorney who has these contacts and a solid reputation with local land use boards. I have good contacts with any number of land use experts and consultants. I also have a solid reputation in the Somerville area as a no-nonsense land use attorney. Whether you are seeking approvals for a single-family home, a multiunit residential development or a commercial development, I can help.
Objections to Development
Do you feel that a proposed development in your area will generate negative impacts on you and your neighborhood? Is a developer in your area overreaching? Are you even aware of the proposal in its details? All too often, those without real grievances appear as objectors, while those with real grievances remain unaware of proposed development until it is too late to object.
I am willing to represent objectors with real grievances. I do not and will not represent objectors when I believe proposed development is appropriate and proper. In raising objections, you will require not only the review and representation of an attorney, but a committed effort. This may involve developing grass-roots campaigning, organization into a bona fide entity and collection of dues for payment of legal fees and other costs.
