Tax Certiorari & Condemnation Law
Property Tax Assessment Law Services - Garden City, N.Y.
The tax certiorari and condemnation practice comprises attorneys with more than 20 years experience in real estate tax reduction and eminent domain proceedings. Our partners include a former deputy chief of the Tax Certiorari Bureau of Nassau County and the New York City Condemnation Bureau as well as former chairs of the Nassau and Suffolk Bar Association Tax Certiorari Committees.
Our attorneys are well versed in determining the value of property throughout New York State. We review assessment records to determine if errors or inaccuracies exist, if abatements or exemptions are available and if market value estimates are correct. The team moves expeditiously to recover any real estate tax over-payments and to ensure that future assessments are reduced to the fullest extent of the law. We prepare for administrative hearings, consult with appraisers, engineers and other valuation experts and appear on behalf of clients at administrative hearings, at trial and in the appellate courts.
Those who seek our counsel include owners or net lessees of commercial and industrial property such as rental properties, office buildings, hotels, banks, movie theaters, shopping centers and warehouses. We also represent homeowners and condominium or cooperative properties.
In condemnation proceedings, the group acts on behalf of both owners and tenants. Our goal is for clients to receive the highest possible award for their loss of real property and fixtures. We handle a range of issues-from properties affected by street widening to complete governmental takeovers. Our attorneys have a reputation for relentlessly pursuing every available means to represent our clients' interests.Service Areas:
