Suzanne opened her solo practice in New York City in 2010, where she concentrates on real estate litigation and transactions, as well as commercial litigation. She is qualified by the New York State Office of Court Administration for appointment as a receiver and as counsel to receiver.
From 2006 through 2010, Suzanne was counsel to Newman Ferrara LLP, a boutique real estate and litigation firm, where she handled a variety of complex state and federal real estate matters, as well as numerous real estate transactions. Before that, she spent 12 years at Borah, Goldstein, Altschuler & Schwartz, P.C., (n/k/a Borah, Goldstein, Altschuler, Nahins & Goidel, P.C.), beginning there as a senior associate, and eventually becoming partner, and then counsel, to the firm. As an attorney in the Supreme Court Division of this major New York City real estate litigation firm, Suzanne handled a wide variety of complex state and federal court cases, including declaratory judgment and injunctive actions, commercial foreclosures, workouts, representation of cooperative and condominium boards of directors and representation of real estate owners in all phases of bankruptcy litigation, we well as real estate transactions.
From 1985 through 1988, Suzanne was a senior associate at the law firm of Baron & Gleich (n/k/a Gleich, Siegel & Farkas), a general litigation and real estate practice. In that role, she supervised a large landlord-tenant practice, and managed all types of real estate transactions.
While at New York Law School, Suzanne was a member of the Moot Court Association and, as a 3L, was the chairperson of the Robert F. Wagner National Labor and Employment Law Moot Court Competition, which is described by the law school as “the nation’s largest student-run moot court competition and the premier national competition dedicated exclusively to the areas of labor and employment law.”
While still an undergraduate at The George Washington University, Suzanne co-authored an article that appeared in the March 1980 issue of the Policy Studies Journal entitled “Public Information on Social Change: TV Coverage of Women in the Workforce.” She also presented her findings at a Women’s Caucus for Political Science panel at the 1979 American Political Science Association Annual Meeting, Washington, D.C.
When she’s not working, Suzanne is an avid volunteer in her community. She is a past president of the JCC of Central New Jersey and currently is a national board member of the Jewish Community Center Association of North America.
