Case History

Jersey Gardens Lodging Associates ERGG Grant — I am representing Jersey Gardens Lodging Associates in obtaining what will be the first or second State Incentive Grant Agreement in New Jersey.  Jersey Gardens is about to construct a hotel in Elizabeth, NJ. In this transaction, pursuant to a new statute, a portion of the state hotel tax to be generated by the new hotel, will be paid back to to JGLA, which it will then assign to its construction and permanent finacing lender to fill a project fiancing gap created by the lender''s lending limts.
Paks Fast Service, Inc. v. New Jersey Department of Transporation et al — I represented Paks Fast Service, Inc., a neighboring property owner and competitor of a Pilot Service Station on State Route 17.  Paks challenged the New Jersey Department of Transportation''s grant of a state highway access permit to Pilot.  This case, before the New Jersey Superior Court, Appellate Division, established that Paks, a neighboring property owner and competitor, had standing to challenge the NJDOT''''s grant of the access permit to Pilot.
Parbrahm v. City of Trenton et al — I represented Parbrahm  in its challenge to the City of  Trenton''s blight designation of  Parbrahms'' service station.  The 45 day appeal period in which to challenge the designation has expired 2 years earlier and I was able to obtain a two year extension of the appeal period from the trail court based on the intersts of justice standard; because of constutuional deficiencies in the City''s notice of  its blight designation.
