About Our Firm

Cronin & Cronin specializes in Tax Certiorari, protesting the real property tax assessments and condemnation for commercial properties throughout New York State.

Our success in the field of Tax Certiorari is due to our reputation for honesty, integrity and excellence. Because of our reputation, as well as our extensive knowledge and years of experience in property matters, we have established a positive relationship with the various municipalities. We aggressively negotiate cases in order to achieve maximum reductions in real estate taxes and substantial reductions in future tax burdens.


Our priority is outstanding service to our clients. We are committed to addressing the individual needs of each property. We make the process of protesting, negotiating and settling a case as easy as possible and take the time to explain the procedures and intricacies of the law.

Our lawyers have obtained some of the most dramatic reductions in assessment in New York State, resulting in the largest refunds issued by the taxing municipalities. We have established legal precedent on various issues, including the valuation of cooperatives, tenant standing, school district intervention, and expert testimony.

Our staff is knowledgeable in all areas related to property tax. We consult with clients on purchasing or remodeling a property by projecting future property taxes and values as well as aid in obtaining any eligible exemptions. We manage all steps in a condemnation case to ensure our clients are treated justly as well as aid in any contamination/environmental issues a property may have.
