Areas Of Practice

Residential & Commercial Real Estate

As a residential tenant, it’s in your best interest to see counsel if you have issues with your building’s management as the law offers excellent protection for residential tenants.

When it comes to commercial real estate, the restrictions may be tricky in terms of lease terms, rent increases, and security deposit repayments which is why its important to seek legal counsel.

Civil, Commerical & Business Litigation

Our firm handles complex litigation and arbitration for plaintiffs and defendants in every business area.

Some of these areas include securities, corporate law, real estate, contracts, business torts, partnership disputes and dissolution, shareholder disputes, corporate management, limited liability companies, consumer protection, and construction.

Personal Injury Litigation

When another person’s negligence causes you an injury, you need an experienced personal injury attorney to advocate on your behalf.

Corporate Governance

The purpose of corporate governance is to keep corporations, markets, and financial institutions reputable and honest.

We strive to protect our clients by balancing interests among a business’s different stakeholders. 

Condominium Law

In the state of New York, if you own real property which will be defined as independent/individual units in which the owner has claim over the title of the property then he/she purchased within. 

It’s important to note the distinction between a condominium and a normal residence is that when you own a condominium you own the property and airspace as well as giving you the ability to own the unit outright.

Cooperative Law

There are 4 main types of cooperatives which are

  • General Cooperatives

Great Experience w/ CP Law Firm.

I had a great experience with this firm. I was able to have my cervical procedure done thanks to the help of all the people from this office. Since my residence is in Florida, I had to fly into New York. They were able to accommodate my hours, refer me to great clinics and doctors, and expedited my case in a great manner. I’ve recommended Cherny & Associates to other people and they have been very happy with their service.

Patient and Response Law Firm!

Had a very pleasurable experience at CP Law Firm. I had a personal injury case that needed attention and I dealt personally with Steven Podolsky. He was informative and patient and made me feel more confident about my case. I definitely appreciate not being forced to rush when explaining or feeling as if this was a money grab. Would definitely recommend this firm.

Great value for the service!

Good negotiation tactics that the team possesses. Would recommend. Updates take place when inquire. Fees are slightly higher than an average law office. On the other hand if you pay for average you receive average. Overall would recommend
