Offit Kurman Welcomes Six Attorneys Across Four Offices
Offit Kurman is pleased to welcome one counsel and five associates to the firm in the areas of Distressed Real Estate, Real Estate, Landlord Representation, Insurance Recovery, Family Law, and Estates and Trusts.
Thomas Halm joins the firm as counsel in the Distressed Real Estate practice, resident in the Metropark, New Jersey office. He advises secured and unsecured creditors, financial institutions, mortgage servicers, investment firms, distressed debt asset funds, receivers, landlords, trustees, and asset purchasers.
Mr. Halm represents his clients in state and federal courts in commercial litigation and transactional matters, including commercial and residential foreclosure actions, bankruptcies, receiverships, evictions, collections, workout proceedings, insolvency and other complex creditors' rights matters. He has extensive experience with New Jersey receivership law and has acted as a court-appointed receiver and lead counsel in several of the state's most significant Ponzi scheme cases.
Mr. Halm received his B.A., cum laude, from Seton Hall University and his J.D. from Seton Hall University School of Law.
Associate Ahmad Ahmadzai joins the Real Estate practice in the Bethesda, Maryland office. He represents borrowers, lenders, buyers, sellers, and franchisees/franchisors. Mr. Ahmadzai assists in drafting and negotiating primary loan documents, title and survey clearances, third-party agreements for purchases, refinancings, and change ownership or operation transactions for multifamily apartment complexes and assisted living facilities.
Mr. Ahmadzai received his B.S. from Virginia Commonwealth University and his J.D. from Howard University School of Law. He received his L.L.M. from Georgetown University Law Center.
Associate Robert Donahue joins the Landlord Representation practice in the Bethesda office. As a litigator, he focuses on delivering efficient solutions for property owners and managers.
Mr. Donohue received his B.S. from Kenyon College and his J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center.
Associate Richard Dunne joins the Insurance Recovery practice in the Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania office. He counsels business owners and individual policyholders on a range of insurance coverage and risk management issues, including first-party property damage, commercial liability matters, directors and officers liability issues, and losses related to employee theft, and has analyzed coverage under a wide variety of primary and excess policies.
Before becoming an attorney, Mr. Dunne worked as a claims analyst, a role that positioned him to help policyholders navigate the insurance industry — from policy selection and claim preparation to dispute resolution and, if needed, litigation.
Mr. Dunne received his B.S. from Rider University and his J.D. from Drexel University’s Thomas R. Kline School of Law, where he served as a Lead Editor of the Drexel Law Review.
Associate Jacqueline “Jackie” Mitchell-Koromah joins the Family Law practice in the Bethesda office. Ms. Koromah advises and represents clients in matters of divorce, child custody and visitation, child and spousal support, settlement negotiations, property division, modification and enforcement actions, and other domestic relations matters. She works with her clients to develop solutions to the legal issues they face and supports them in what is frequently one of the most stressful times of their lives.
Ms. Koromah received her B.S. from George Mason University and her J.D. from George Washington Law School.
Associate Michelle Yeung joins the firm's Estates and Trusts practice in the New York office. She concentrates her practice on estate tax, trust, Medicaid and Special Needs planning. Ms. Yeung prepares wills and various types of trusts, such as generation-skipping tax trusts, credit shelter trusts, life insurance trusts, Medicaid asset protection trusts, and supplemental needs trusts. She advises clients on complex estate planning, including tax saving plans, document drafting, and credit shelter trusts.
Ms. Yeung received her B.S., cum laude, from New York City College of Technology and her J.D., cum laude, from SUNY Buffalo Law School, where she received the 2015 Judge William J. Regan Award for demonstrating excellent proficiency in estates and surrogate's law.
