We represent both property owners and municipalities in challenging real estate tax assessments on properties to reduce the properties assessed value and subsequently, as a result their related real estate taxes.

Representative clients include residential property owners as well as owners of commercial properties such as office buildings, factories, warehouses, retail stores, restaurants, shopping centers, hotels, hospitals, and major educational institutions.

In addition to assessments, the department also focuses on tax exemptions and payments in lieu of taxes, for our clients to gain back as much as possible. The strict deadlines and detailed procedures are seamlessly handled by our firm who handle an average of 50 assessment matters a year. We advocate for our clients throughout the entire process, commencing with the filing of a grievance complaint, appearing before the assessment review boards, the filing of a petition, negotiations, at trial and on appeal.
