About the Firm

In 1997 the firm of Collins & Dobkin merged with the law office of Seth A. Miller to form Collins, Dobkin & Miller LLP. The partners bring decades of housing law experience to the firm.  The goal of our practice is to provide quality legal representation to the tenant community of New York City. Individual partners have developed areas of expertise including real estate closings, commercial disputes, cooperative and condominium law and loft law.  The firm has represented clients in Housing Court, Civil Court, Supreme Court, all state appellate courts, federal district and bankruptcy courts, the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and before state and local housing agencies.  Over the years the partners, attorneys of counsel and associates have represented thousands of individual tenants and scores of tenant groups and associations.

All of the partners, associates , attorneys who are of counsel to the firm and paralegal Jon Lilienthal have been vigorous advocates on behalf of tenants rights, publishing articles, making television and radio appearances, participating in impact litigation, supporting key groups like the Metropolitan Council on Housing, Tenants and Neighbors and P.A.’L.A.N.T.E. Harlem.
