Somerville, NJ Real Estate Attorney

Whether you are purchasing, selling, developing or occupying real estate, I can assist you in identifying and navigating the myriad of legal issues that will inevitably arise. My extensive experience representing owners, contractors, and developers in complex real estate and land use matters will deliver you a successful strategy for your real estate or land use needs. I understand what is important to my clients and it is my aim to keep you informed of and involved in each and every aspect of your matter.

Real Estate Practice Overview

The Real Estate and Land Use legal practice represents both residential and commercial clients in the following areas:
  • Purchase, Sale and Financing
  • Leasing
  • Landlord-Tenant
  • Land Use / Zoning / Permitting
  • Condominium / Homeowners Associations


I have substantial experience in closing real estate acquisitions and development, and secured loan transactions. I can advise you regarding construction and/or permanent financing for commercial, residential, and condominium developments. My clients include borrowers, sellers, developers, businesses, property managers and builders.


Leases are long and complex documents that determine the relationship between a landlord and tenant for many years. Lease terms are often disregarded as “boilerplate” but have a substantial impact on the rights and obligations of both the landlord and the tenant. I understand the nuances of lease language and will lead the landlord or the tenant through the process of negotiating and/or enforcing ground, retail, office, restaurant, warehouse and office leases.

Land Use / Zoning / Permitting

I represent landowners, developers and lenders in connection with all aspects of land use and permitting for the development of commercial sites, retail complexes, and residential neighborhoods. I also represent individual homeowners who need assist through the permitting and approval process with their local municipality. I strive to creatively and efficiently move the property owner, developer or builder through the complex zoning and permitting process. My aim is to obtain timely approval on realistic terms that will maximize the development potential of your property.

Condominiums / Homeowners Associations

The common ownership of land by an association of unrelated people presents unique opportunities and challenges. I have substantial experience in the formation and administration of condominiums and homeowners associations and the processes related thereto.

Landlord / Tenant

Landlord tenant law is mandated by specific statutory requirements that can often be difficult to understand. I have the experience necessary to properly institute legal proceedings under the statute. I work with landlords to make certain that all statutory requirements are met in order to ensure a timely and effective outcome. Commercial landlord tenant law is guided mainly by lease agreements. I am experienced with all sides of commercial landlord tenant law. I will work with you to ensure that your rights are protected, no matter what side of the deal you are on. In all landlord tenant issues, time is of the essence and you can rest assured knowing that I will litigate your issue in a timely and effective manner.
