Maintaining expertise in many areas of law, allows clients the freedom from concerns that their lawyer is learning on their dime. Having a team of versatile attorneys within one firm allows for in-depth research from interdisciplinary counsel. SDG attorneys have experience in family and matrimonial law; estate planning, including elder law, asset protection, and special needs planning; business law; commercial and residential real estate, including banking and secured lending; personal injury; criminal defense; reduction in land tax, municipal law; liquor licenses; and hospitality issues. SDG tailors their counsel to each client’s immediate needs and long-term goals.
They pride themselves on having three exceptional partners — Kenneth M. Stenger is a 2022 Top Lawyer in the Hudson Valley for Real Estate Law and excels in civil litigation and land use; Stephen E. Diamond is a 2022 Top Lawyer in the Hudson Valley for Business Law and is also well known for estate planning, elder law planning, and asset protection; and Jessica J. Glass is well revered in liquor licenses, real estate, and business transactions.
Larger firms have the legal resources and insight to understand the deep scope of each case. SDG is big enough to have attorneys with the expertise to manage client’s needs, but small enough to provide the individual attention a client deserves. Even when legal situations appear to be simple at first, not all are best handled by a direct route. A diversity of lawyers allows for optimal results. SDG wholeheartedly boasts, “We don’t practice law because we HAVE to, we practice law because we WANT to.”
