- Successfully represented developer of a luxury subdivision in Westchester County, defeating an Article 78 action brought by neighbors seeking to stop the development. Won summary judgment on a separate fraud claim brought by nearby property owner seeking to further stall the development after the Article 78 proceeding had been dismissed.
- Successfully represented step-granddaughter in a will contest where blood relatives challenged the decedent’s will, under which decedent bequeathed a majority of her estate to step-granddaughter. Successfully steered the parties into a mediation resulting in favorable resolution for our client.
- After stepping in for prior counsel, who failed to seek and obtain a Yellowstone injunction, we obtained a preliminary injunction on behalf of a major supermarket chain which prevented the landlord from moving forward with eviction proceedings, thereby saving the assignment agreement contract that the client had just entered into with another large supermarket chain.
