Property Tax Appeals

I regularly appear before the local County Tax Boards, including the Bergen County Tax Board, Hudson County Tax Board, Passaic County Tax Board, Morris County Tax Board, Essex County Tax Board, and the Sussex County Tax Board, as well as the New Jersey Tax Courts and have successfully reduced assessments and property taxes for many property owners in New Jersey.

If I accept a tax appeal, my success rate is in excess of 96%. My experience in negotiating over 1,000 settlements allows me to achieve outstanding results without the need for an expensive and time consuming trial. Where no settlement can be reached, my experience in the Courtroom allows me to back up my demands to the adversary with winning trial results.

I have been certified as a New Jersey Civil Trial Attorney, by the Supreme Court of New Jersey. Only a small percentage of all attorneys licensed in New Jersey are certified as Civil Trial Attorneys. This certification is given to attorneys whose qualifications and experience have been reviewed by senior Certified Civil Trial attorneys to ensure the applicant has a sufficient amount of courtroom experience, and who have passed a lengthy written examination. Only Civil Trial Attorneys can advertise their specialized experience in handling civil trials.

If I accept your case, I will perform the legal work personally. Your matter will NOT be given to an associate who lacks experience in the courtroom. I will work together with you to choose the best legal strategy to win your court case.

I can also answer your questions regarding: farmland assessments and appeals, senior freeze act, veteran’s property tax deductions, tax exempt property and homestead rebate.
