He also has substantial experience concerning estate planning, probate administration, and wills and trusts preparation. He has worked directly with hundreds of clients over the years, helping them see that their personal and economic goals, plans and wishes are accomplished. He also handles real estate and contract matters.
Mr. Herschkowitz is proud to note that he previously co-taught classes at New York Weill Cornell Medical Center, focusing on various legal, contractual and insurance issues affecting medical doctors and the practice of medicine.
