Up Close & Personal

     We are pleased to highlight Daniel Braff, who joined the firm as Counsel last fall. Dan focuses his practice in land use and zoning matters involving real property located within the City of New York and Long Island, and also advises clients on a variety of transactional real estate matters. Dan is an active member of the Land Use Planning and Zoning Committee of The Association of the Bar of the City of New York and is very proud to have recently joined the New Leadership Division at North Shore-LIJ Health System, which raises funds for Cohen Children’s Medical Center. Dan and his wife live in Greenwich Village with their dog Beckett, and recently celebrated their one-year wedding anniversary. They enjoy traveling and will be spending a week in June in Glacier and Yellowstone National Parks, camping, fishing and hiking among the nation’s most beautiful scenery.

     Congratulations to Michael Sahn, and his wife, who recently became proud grandparents to a baby grandson. Michael’s son, a highly accomplished pediatric physician, and his wife, a physical therapist, live in Philadelphia. We wish them all the best.

     We welcome to the Firm our newest staff members, Joanne Bardarson and Tiffany Marachilian, our summer associate, Jenna Gallagher and summer intern, Meredith-Anne Kurz.

     We are also pleased to highlight our stalwart receptionist, Jean Birone, who Michael Sahn likes to call, “The Captain of the Ship.” With great patience and dedication, Jean manages the Firm’s telephone traffic, greeting all visitors with a warm, familial, but professional manner, and keeps track of all of the Firm’s attorneys and staff as they move about between the 6th and 7th floors, and attend their various appointments, in and outside the office. Jean recently traveled to London, England, and had a wonderful vacation.
