Romer Debbas LLP, a New York City-based law firm specializing in commercial and residential real estate transactions, announced attorney Daniel Gershburg has recently joined the firm as a partner specializing in bankruptcy law.
Gershburg will also head Romer Debbas’ new Brooklyn office in Williamsburg that will open April 1.
“Romer Debbas has had a good presence in Brooklyn, but as the real estate market there continues to grow, we wanted expand our presence in the borough,” said Romer Debbas founding co-partner Pierre Debbas. “Bringing in an attorney of [Gershburg]’s pedigree to be our firm’s face in Brooklyn and plant our flag there is the perfect way to go.”
Prior to joining Romer Debbas, Gershburg ran his own practice, which he started directly out of law school, where he focused on representing both purchasers and sellers in New York real estate transactions and consumer bankruptcy. He represents a diverse group of clients: from first time homebuyers to foreign entities and developers across the New York City area.
He has also represented hundreds of individuals and corporations in filing for Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy, resulting in the discharge of tens of millions of dollars in consumer debt.
“[Gershburg]’s passion for technology allows him to create a client experience that allows his clients to know what is happening in their transaction every step of the way,” said Romer Debbas founding co-partner Michael Romer.
Gershburg frequently lectures and teaches a variety of continuing legal education classes for attorneys on both real estate and bankruptcy, as well as continuing education courses on topics related to residential real estate.
He has been named a Rising Stars by Super Lawyers for the past three years. Rising Stars lists the top 2.5 percent of lawyers under the age of 40 in their respective practice areas as nominated by their peers. He also holds a Superb and Client’s Choice rating from AVVO.com
Gershburg earned his law degree from New York Law School and a bachelor’s degree in political science and philosophy from Rutgers. He is licensed to practice law in New York State and New Jersey and is a member of the New York State and New Jersey Bar Associations.
He also volunteers for the Brooklyn Bar Association Volunteer Lawyers project, where he helps low-income individuals gain debt relief and is on the board of Queens Community House.
