Lawyers Representing the Jewish Orthodox CommunityJewish Orthodox Community

OrthodoxAmong his diverse client base, Sanford F. Young has close ties to and represents members of the Jewish Orthodox and Hasidic communities who need a seasoned litigator or appellate attorney to represent them in the state or federal courts in the New York metropolitan area, including New York City, New York State, Northern New Jersey, and Central New Jersey.

Business, commercial, and real estate disputes can and do occur involving members of the Orthodox and Hasidic communities. Often, these disputes highlight differing styles and customs for conducting business, such as the use of less formal contracts. By contrast, the secular community and civil court system are used to seeing detailed, written, and lawyer-drafted agreements. Accordingly, when disputes or lawsuits arise -- whether between two or more members of the Hasidic or Orthodox community or with the secular community – the skill and finesse of a seasoned litigator who understands the needs and customs of both communities are needed.

Secular Law and Halacha

Sanford F. Young, who thinks of himself as a Talmudic thinker with a Yeshiva background, has successfully taken on cases by or between members of the Hasidic community involving disputes over the ownership or use of real estate or religious buildings, breach of contract, and the foreclosure of mortgages. In many of these cases, Mr. Young has to navigate between the application of civil law and jurisdiction of the civil courts, as compared to the strictures of Jewish Law, Halacha, and the intervention of a Rabbinical Court or Bet Din.

Mr. Young has written for Hamodia Magazine and one of his current cases, where Mr. Young's successful handling of a case involving the transformation of a Brooklyn synagogue, was reported in Jewish Week.
