Ezra N. Goodman devotes his practice to cooperative and condominium law, real estate, and land use matters, in addition to construction law. He works out of the firm’s New York City office.

Ezra’s practice includes the representation of numerous cooperative, condominium and rental housing developments.

Ezra’s rich and varied experience in these fields spans more than 40 years. It encompasses the sale and purchase of commercial, as well as residential properties; industrial, commercial, and retail leasing; construction contracts of all scopes and types; major service contracts; and counseling the boards of directors, managers, and owners of the housing developments regarding governance and all facets of their operations. In the course of his practice, Ezra has developed many forms and procedures for dealing with the problems faced by his clients in a manner which is efficient and cost effective, yet customized to each client’s needs.

Ezra strongly believes that effective legal representation, especially in the housing field, requires him to be proactive rather than reflexive. “I enjoy being an advocate for the good of my clients and not just a mechanic. We helped create the very concept of cooperative housing in New York City and we are dedicated to promoting and strengthening it in whatever way possible.”

Ezra has lectured on cooperative housing law at many forums, including the Coordinating Council of Cooperatives.
