I consult on issues related to the United States Supreme Court, as well as on cases involving property law, with a special interest in the law of adverse possession and prescription. I currently represent a group of elderly homeowners in a dispute with Norfolk Southern Railway Co. concerning the railroad’s closure of a grade-level rail crossing in Lansing, New York. We recently won a reversal in the Appellate Division of the trial court’s grant of summary judgment for the Defendant. I have also served as a consultant to a Long Island cooperative board in a multi-million dollar adverse possession lawsuit in New York state court.
