As the managing partner of this firm since its formation, I have been frequently asked why it has been so successful over the years. When answering, I think of Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes' famous quote, "... A page of history is worth a volume of logic."

When the firm was formed in 1976, it was a three-lawyer, general practice firm representing local businesses and individuals. To establish our standing in the legal community and to better serve our clients, we decided to develop an expertise in Real Estate, Land Use and Zoning, and Commercial Litigation. As the firm began to establish its reputation in these practice areas, our clients took notice.

From the late 1970's to the end of the 1980's, the firm changed and grew to further accommodate the needs of our clients. Attorneys experienced in the firm's particular practice areas were added to handle complex matters for the major real estate developers and national corporations that had become part of the clientele. New specialized practice areas such as Tax Certiorari and Environmental Law were provided to offer a wider range of representation. By the end of the decade, the firm had more than 20 attorneys, each concentrating on a particular area of law. Our reputation was solidly established and the firm's practice extended throughout the Long Island region.

The firm continued to grow during the 1990's by strengthening its existing practice areas and adding new ones. By the year 2000, the firm's more than 30 attorneys included experienced Corporate, Bankruptcy, and Trusts and Estates practitioners. Since then, the firm has continued to grow to over 60 attorneys and incorporate new practice areas such as Banking, Construction and Elder Law.

This brief history illustrates that the firm's success has always been based on providing the best possible representation for our clients through the efforts of talented attorneys who are trained and experienced in particular practice areas. Following this legacy of providing outstanding service, the firm will continue to be successful throughout the new millennium.
