Since becoming an attorney in 1985, I have experienced the field of real estate become what was once a routine transaction into a complicated, stress-filled ordeal. Underground oil (leaking and not leaking), septic systems, mortgage issues, short sales, all involving government officials, overly detailed regulations and expensive remediation procedures. I have experience with them all, and can save you time and money which are essential in any transaction.
With the "graying" of America, real estate features a prominent role in asset preservation, Medicaid rules and standards of care. The issue of "should Mom and Dad transfer the house to the kids?" is often raised. I can help answer that question and more.
I have been a member of the New Jersey Bar sicne 1985, when I graduated Temple University School of Law. There, I was an Associate Editor of the school's Environmental Law & Technology Journal. My undergraduate degree is from the William Paterson College of New Jersey.
I am a Past-President of the Hunterdon County Bar Association (2010-2011). In addition to memberships in the New Jersey State Bar Association and its Elder Law and Disability Section, I am a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys.
