Meet Edward Alper
EDWARD ALPER, ESQ., is a highly experienced attorney whose practice includes commercial and real estate transactions and disputes, including all aspects of litigation, from commencing the actions, through the taking of discovery, the conducting of trials, and the prosecuting or defending of appeals.
Mr. Alper’s career highlights include: defending a civil action which protected the legal interests of the developer of the Secaucus Junction station (New Jersey Transit) in the U.S. District Court of New Jersey, against the Town of Secaucus, which sought an injunction intended to stop development of the transit station; and prosecuting a civil action in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, the U.S. District Court, the U.S. Court of Appeals and the New York Housing Court, focused on the issue of whether a tenant continues to have an interest in his leasehold subject to the protections of bankruptcy laws after a warrant of eviction has been issued against the tenant.
