In 1989, he joined Rosenberg & Estis, P.C., where his practice focuses on commercial real estate transactions. In recent years, he has expanded his work in financing transactions and distressed loan workouts, helping both lenders and borrowers find creative solutions to debt restructuring. Since 2001, he has maintained a practice in insurance assessment and defense in cases of complex valuations, rental income loss claims, and soft cost claims.
Mr. Lefkowitz has been instrumental in building the commercial real estate division of Rosenberg & Estis, P.C., and is proud to have spent his entire career dedicated to the growth of one firm. Outside his legal practice, Mr. Lefkowitz is the principal of a family-owned real estate portfolio of more than one million square feet of commercial and office properties. He attributes his success to hard work and strong communication skills and finds the most satisfaction in finding ways to guide clients to positive outcomes in complex transactions.
