Fox & Lefkowitz, LLP is a progressive firm well suited to handle a variety of personal, business and commercial legal matters. We pride ourselves on offering personal service tailored to the needs of our clients. Fox & Lefkowitz LLP firm consists of four practicing attorneys, each involved with specific areas of the law.

With respect to our real estate practice, we represent clients purchasing or selling new and existing residential and commercial properties including houses, condominiums, cooperatives, buildings and stores. We perform closings on behalf of our clients and represent cooperative corporations and condominium boards. We represent clients in matters involving commercial and residential leasing and other finance-oriented and secured transactions.

Wills, trusts, and probate of estates are a big part of our practice area. With respect to estate planning, we represent clients on matters involving estates, wills, living wills, revocable and irrevocable trusts, living trusts, marital trusts, children trusts, life insurance trusts, special needs disability trusts and testamentary trusts. Importantly, we represent clients in the probate and administration of an estate of a deceased family member or loved one as well as estate litigation and will contests. Our representation in estate planning also includes strategies to cut the effect of federal and New York State estate taxes. Absent proper planning, estate taxes can approach and exceed fifty percent of an estate.

We represent clients on matrimonial and family law including divorce, child support and custody matters. We represent clients in both contested and uncontested divorces. We review mediation agreements by divorcing couples and act as mediators to ease divorces and separations. We prepare both prenuptial and post-marital agreements.

Our practice includes negligence and personal injury law. We represent clients involved in automobile, bus and train accidents; slip and fall accidents; wrongful death; defective products; construction accidents; and job-related injuries.

We advise and represent clients in reference to different business entities including corporations, limited liability companies, limited liability partnerships, partnerships and sole proprietorship.

We practice in both State and Federal Court in the New York Metropolitan area including New York City and Long Island.
