He does so with a keen understanding of the financial pressures many companies and individuals face today. Eugene approaches his matters with urgency and a meticulous attention to detail. His clients appreciate his responsiveness and value his thoughtful, common-sense advice which is specifically tailored to their needs.

Whether in a court, before a regulatory or administrative agency, in an arbitration, or at the negotiating table, Eugene provides compelling, high-quality legal representation for his clients at a fraction of what larger law firms charge. Eugene takes a hands-on approach to his clients’ matters. Eugene personally handles every aspect of his cases, from drafting pleadings and motions to attending court conferences, efficiently managing discovery, and conducting depositions, hearings and trials. Eugene also conducts internal and external investigations on behalf of boards of directors, special committees, and human resources and compliance departments, and represents clients in state attorneys general investigations.

Eugene is an active member of several bar associations, including the New York American Inn of Court, where he served as Executive Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer for ten years. The New York American Inn of Court is a local chapter of the American Inns of Court, a national organization whose mission is to foster excellence in professionalism, ethics, civility, and legal skills.
