New York, NY According to Ditchik & Ditchik, PLLC, the law firm has welcomed real property tax attorney Steven Tishco to the position of partner. Tishco will serve in a leadership capacity alongside managing partner Joel Ditchik.
Tishco brings a decade-and-a-half of NYC real estate tax litigation experience and will serve Ditchik & Ditchik’s established client base of developers, landlords and hoteliers.
“I was attracted to Ditchik & Ditchik because it is an established practice with a demonstrated history of success. It’s also a youthful firm that approaches this field of law in a unique and innovative way,” said Tishco. “I’m excited to be part of the next generation of tax certiorari lawyers, and Ditchik & Ditchik is the emerging player in this area of the law.”
Tishco was previously an associate attorney for real estate tax litigation at Marcus & Pollack LLP and served as senior counsel at the New York City Law Department’s Tax and Bankruptcy Litigation Division. Tishco earned his J.D. from Benjamin Cardozo School of Law in 2004 and was admitted to the bar in 2005.
“I think of Ditchik & Ditchik, PLLC as a niche firm within a niche part of the law: we represent property owners who have high-value assets and we’re able to spend the time each case requires efficiently,” said Ditchik, who has managed the firm for over 10 years. “Steve’s experience makes him uniquely qualified to join our firm as a partner, to help our team of three lawyers and two paralegals continue to grow and to take on new cases that require significant attention, without sacrificing the service we’ve provided to our current clients for decades.”
Ditchik and Ditchik was founded by Alan and Joel Ditchik in 2000. Prior to that time, Alan and Joel were tax certiorari lawyers at Kurzman Karelsen & Frank.
