Abrams Fensterman opened its doors in 2000 as a firm primarily positioned to meet the legal needs of health care providers, from regulatory and corporate compliance to mergers and acquisitions and, of course, litigation. But its founding partners had a broader vision.

Sixteen years later, Abrams Fensterman is a full-service firm some 80 lawyers strong, with practices that run the gamut from corporate and securities law and white-collar criminal defense to real estate and elder law. Through each practice runs one common thread: dedicated attorneys whose experience, judgment, and skill gives clients a distinct advantage—regardless of their legal needs.

It also means that clients benefit from the collective experience of the entire firm, especially useful in practices such as family law or elder law, where multifaceted cases can touch upon many legal disciplines. The legal community has taken notice. Its family law group has been ranked Tier 1 in New York City by U.S. News – Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” in 2017, while three of its partners have been named to the Best Lawyers list: Certified Elder Law Attorney Ellyn S. Kravitz, executive partner Samuel J. Ferrara, and Sharon P. Stiller, a fellow of the College of Labor and Employment Lawyers and director of the firm’s Employment Law group.

But at Abrams Fensterman, it’s always been about how the whole is always greater than the sum of its individual parts—with clients set to reap the benefits. “Our exceptional attorneys are leaders in their respective practices,” says Managing Partner Howard Fensterman. “We put that experience to work for our clients every day.”
