Most Impressive Case Victory

The nuances of the legal field are challenging enough to navigate for those at larger firms who benefit from a sophisticated support network. But for independents and small firms, principals are required to attend to all the facets of running a business as well as staying abreast of ever-changing laws. In the case of this attorney, she also fills her days with constant networking and joining the causes of local charities. Recently, her clients faced a battle over the intricacies of tax law. A married couple moved from Manhattan to Long Island, remaining employed in the city and keeping a home there. Despite these continued ties, Tenenbaum successfully showed that the couple should not be treated as NYC residents under the tax laws—an argument that saved them approximately half a million dollars.
