Judge and Prosecutor add new dimension to Real Estate firm’s services.

Jack Jaffa & Associates, NYC’s best-known and largest property violation removal firm added two new associate attorneys to its staff. The firm proudly welcomes former Environmental Control Board Judge Linda March, Esq., and former Environmental Control Board prosecutor Dawn Falco, Esq., both dedicated and celebrated professionals within their fields, who will help serve NYC property owners as the firm continues to grow.

Judge Linda March’s legal career spans over 25 years, serving the last 8 of those years as an Administrative Law Judge at ECB. Judge March held positions with NYC Department of Finance and NYC Taxi & Limousine Commission as an ALJ as well. In addition, Ms. March has served as a legislative attorney for the NYC Department of Consumer Affairs. Her experience within the diverse realms of law administration ranged from conducting hearings on violations issues, adjudicating violations and drafting decisions, as well as adjudicating appeals and drafting appeal decisions.

Dawn Falco has established herself as an exceptional hearing attorney in NYC’s Department of Buildings Administrative enforcement unit. Throughout her half-decade tenure at DOB she has effectively participated in proceedings where property owners were charged with a wide range of infractions. Her experience has earned her an unparalleled success record in representing the City’s interests. In addition, Ms. Falco consistently performed investigative research for the agency and presented oral arguments relating to the NYC Administrative and Zoning Code Draft. Throughout her career she prepared numerous appeals for the NYC ECB Appeals Unit dealing with building code and zoning violations. She prepared witnesses, analyzed violation documentation for hearings, in addition to supervising and training Building Department attorneys.

“We are honored to welcome these esteemed individuals to our team of resident experts,” said Chief Operating Officer Michael Jaffa in a statement. “With the addition of such seasoned veterans, our clients can expect to have even greater advantages in presenting the most victorious defenses structured with the multi-angled perspective of a judge, a prosecutor, and experienced attorneys. Their broad expertise should bring extensive value to Jack Jaffa’s clientele.”

Combined with their acclaimed violation tracking software, Alert Service, Jack Jaffa & Associates now has all that any NYC property owner can wish for when dealing with their violations - a “one-stop-shop” using the latest technology, employing a seamless process, and a defense strategy constructed with the help of a “dream team” of litigation experts. Recent technological breakthroughs and the hiring of additional experts has propelled the company’s reputation to even greater heights, with the majority of large New York City management companies employing Jack Jaffa & Associates for their litigation services in one form or another. According to Jaffa, most landlords find it convenient to use the alert software in tandem with the company’s other professional services. Whether the client needs assistance in ECB hearing representation, managing their DOB, HPD, and FDNY violations, settlements, or navigating through the complexities associated with 421-a tax exemptions, J-51 abatements, MCI rent increases and ICIP/ICAP tax incentives, lead-paint testing, or property related Criminal Court proceedings, the firm’s staff is well equipped to deal with any challenges that arise.

Lewis Barbanel from Barberry Rose Management attests to the claim, stating that “for us, the many benefits of using Jack Jaffa & Associate’s Alert Service Plus is a no brainer. By bringing all city agencies’ sites onto a single, easy to use platform, our organization can extract the beneficial information required for timely and cost effective administrative compliance - this reduces paperwork, headaches, and phone time with unhelpful city employees. Most importantly, Jack Jaffa & Associates’ up-to-date emails ensure that we catch the complaint before it turns into a violation.”

With the addition of Judge March and Dawn Falco to its current staff of more than 45 professionals, Jack Jaffa & Associates solidified its title as NYC’s premier real estate consulting firm, saving New York’s landlords time and money all the while keeping the city’s tenants the safest they’ve ever been.
