Over fifty years ago, my father, Ed Braverman, recognized that New York City co-ops and condominiums require an attorney who is well-versed in the myriad legal issues faced by boards and founded what is now Braverman Greenspun.  I am proud to have continued and further build upon his legacy.

Since joining the firm in 1993 and overseeing its exponential growth, my partner Scott Greenspun and I have maintained the basic principles on which the firm was founded—hardworking, innovative and compassionate counsel who provide the firm’s clients with an unparalleled level of service and commitment.

Having provided legal counsel to boards for over a quarter of a century, there is unlikely to be an issue that I have not encountered.  In fact, I view my in-depth knowledge of co-op and condominium law as just one of the things I bring to the table.  Equally important, is my understanding of how best to practically approach the legal issues faced by co-ops and condominiums.  I understand that while the legal issues are important, so too are the practical “real life” ramifications of a Board’s decisions. It is for this reason that the advice I give to my clients not only takes into account legal rights and obligations, but also the fact that people’s homes, communities and personal relationships are likely to be affected by the guidance I provide.  There is nothing more rewarding to me on a professional level than working with a client to attain a successful, cost effective outcome to a legal issue, no matter how big or small.
