A HUDSON VALLEY INSTITUTION SINCE 1936
In almost a century, our firm has grown from a solo practice law firm to a team of lawyers handling matters ranging from environmental and land use law to estate planning to complex litigation. We encourage you to follow these links to learn more about our firm:
- Firm History: Our firm was born in 1936 when Albert A. Rapport, Esq., opened his law office in Hudson after two years of practice in New York City.
- Our Clients: Our list of clients includes many prominent municipalities, school districts, authorities, corporations, banks, land trusts, and not-for-profits.
- Community Involvement: Several of the members of our firm are active in public service as elected officials and board members of not-for-profit organizations.
Some of us spent our formative years as attorneys in the Hudson Valley, while others came to the region from elsewhere, bringing a broader range of experience to bear on local issues. All of us are equally committed to the community's growth and quality of life.
