Upon graduation from the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University in New York, classmates Evan N. Pickus and Howard S. Landsberg sought to fulfill a vision- the formation of their own law firm. Originally intending to concentrate in the areas of tax and estates, Mr. Pickus opened his office in East Brunswick, New Jersey, and Mr. Landsberg opened his office in Long Island, New York, with the intention of working together to serve the needs of residents of the respective areas.
Having a prior background in accounting, Mr. Landsberg felt after a period of time that his aspirations could be better fulfilled in the area of taxation and advisory accountancy. He therefore left the practice, and went on to a very successful career in those areas. With his practice already established in New Jersey, Mr. Pickus decided to maintain the firm, and has continued practicing under the Pickus & Landsberg name since 1994.
Circumstances often dictate the direction of business. Contacts and clients needing real estate services tended to gravitate to the firm, and Mr. Pickus found his niche in the area of real estate law. Over the past nineteen years, however, real estate clients developed other needs, requiring the firm to expand its areas of practice. We currently serve our clients, not only with real estate matters, but in the areas of bankruptcy, family law, corporate matters, civil litigation and estate planning.
We have two goals in our practice. The first is to be a true “family practice” – to have the ability, in most situations, to serve the legal needs of our clients. Certainly, circumstances arise where clients require representation outside our expertise, and in such cases we have a wide network of colleagues with whom we can entrust the representation of our clients.
Our second goal is to do our best to insure that our clients are satisfied with our representation. We know that we can’t always give clients the answers they want to hear. But we strive to provide the right answers, anticipating that at the end of the process, most will realize that we truly had their best interests at heart.
So, if you are looking for attorneys who are good at what they do- but more importantly, attorneys who care about what they do, you’ve come to the right place. At Pickus & Landsberg, we specialize in client satisfaction.
