Significant Legal Accomplishment
Our success comes from our ability to not only win at trial or obtain favorable settlement results but from being able to see potential problems in advance. That prevents litigation and can save thousands of dollars. One of the advantages of our firm is that we practice in many areas of real estate law, allowing us to represent cooperatives in many capacities. One of our greatest accomplishments is the ability, mostly through correspondence, to obtain monies from delinquent shareholders and sponsors. As landlord-tenant lawyers, we quickly evict.foreclose on delinquent shareholders. One of the more sophisticated issues that we have been forced to address in the courts is the rights of a sponsor or unsold shareholder and we have been successful in each of our cases in that area. Another issue that we have battled in the court is a shareholder’s rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act. The following letter from board president Adam Horowitz is an example of our clients satisfaction: “I am the president of the 931 Park Avenue Condominium Association and for the last five years Mr. Bailey has represented us as our attorney. He has handled multiple cases for the association including stolen property, slander, liens, and misuse of common space. Adam’s hard work and dedication to our association has saved us thousands of dollars in the last few years and his thoughtfulness to spend time in our condo meetings has given everyone a better sense of the law and how we can use it to our advantage. We will continue to use his services because he has made our building a better place to live.”
