david-j-aronstam-real-estate-attorney-nycAdmitted as a Barrister in South Africa in 1980, I have been practicing law in New York since 1984.  From 1984 to 1992, I was an associate at McLaughlin & Stern, a prestige boutique engaged in a general civil practice which was formed in 1896.  While at McLaughlin & Stern, I worked in all the departments of the firm and gained hands on and in depth experience in all areas of the firm’s practice which included civil litigation, real estate, securities law, corporate law, trust and estates and health care law.

In 1992, I started my own firm as a solo practitioner and have practiced without interruption since that date.  I was counsel to Mandell, Freedman & Mandell, the premier commercial leasing boutique in New York City from 1992-2000.

I believe that the integrity of my law practice is based solely on putting my client’s interests above all others.  I am fully responsive to all my client’s needs and requests and base my fees around what will work for the client in the long term.  I believe in building solid long-term relationships, rather than doing single items of work for each client.  I am working hard to change the negative image so justly earned by the legal profession in this country.
