Every attorney in the firm is thoroughly trained to optimally handle tax appeals (also known as tax grievances) for our clients, with the objective of reducing their taxes. In addition to representing clients in the state of New York, we also represent clients in the states of New Jersey, Connecticut, and Florida. While the majority of our clients own or lease property on Long Island in Nassau and Suffolk Counties, we litigate appeals throughout the entire state of New York – which has over 1,000 separate taxing jurisdictions, including a vast number of villages.
The attorneys at Schroder & Strom, LLP are fully committed to achieving the most expeditious and favorable resolution of our clients’ appeals. We aggressively advance pending appeals and provide taxing jurisdictions with financial data required to evaluate the merits of the appeal. We carefully analyze all matters for negotiations and bring decades of expertise to the settlement conferences in order to maximize pre-trial results. While out-of-court settlement of over-valuation claims is always preferable, being ready, willing, and able to conduct a valuation trial has a positive impact on our ability to enter into meaningful negotiations. While most appeals will, in fact, be settled without a trial, the firm’s attorneys have an excellent track record of obtaining results at the trial court as well as the appellate level.
