"When I started the firm in the early sixties, the office consisted of one room above the old Loews movie theater on Main Street in White Plains. We now occupy approximately fifteen thousand square feet with offices in Westchester and on Long Island. We have twelve first-class lawyers and a fine staff of actuaries, pension administrators and support personnel. I couldn't be more proud of what we have accomplished."

"When I first started with Joel Danziger in 1967, the firm had three attorneys, Joel and me and a third attorney, and four secretaries. Forty-nine years later, we still have four secretaries but also a staff of fifty and 50 computers. I also advised Joel in 1967 that any tax attorneys over the age of 30 had questionable judgment and knowledge. I have since then advanced the 30 year age every ten years.
It is a rewarding experience to practice law with eleven other attorneys, two of whom are our respective sons. Now that I am past the age of 30, I realize that judgment and knowledge increase as one ages."
