Challenging Your Property Tax Assessments

Property taxes often are the single greatest expense involved in owning or managing commercial and residential real estate, aside from mortgage payments. An incorrect assessment can drastically affect the profitability, or marketability, of any property.

I have spent the nearly 30 years helping individuals and businesses ensure that property tax assessments reflect accurate values.  I am a past chairperson of the Erie County Bar Association Committee on Tax Assessment and Eminent Domain.

In addition, I spent four years representing the City of Buffalo, and six years representing the Town of Cheektowaga as sole special counsel handling hundreds of cases. My experience working on all sides of assessment cases allows me to thoroughly evaluate each case and take appropriate action on behalf of my clients.

From my law offices in Amherst, I help clients throughout western New York. To discuss your case with me, please call 716-856-0400.

Time Is Limited. Act Now To Challenge An Incorrect Assessment.

There is a very specific administrative and legal process to challenge assessments and reduce property taxes. Deadlines are short and strict. Contact me if you suspect your assessment is incorrect. I provide the following services:

  • Draft and file your grievance complaint
  • Attend your grievance hearing
  • Commence small claims assessment review, and attend your hearing (residential cases)
  • Commence and handle supreme court proceedings (commercial cases)
  • Represent you in property tax appeals

This process is often complex, with traps for the unwary. That is why it is important to work with an experienced lawyer who understands the complexities of property tax assessment challenges.
