Contesting Commercial Property Valuation
Albany, New York, Tax Abatement Attorneys
The law office of Hacker Murphy, LLP, maintains a strong practice in real estate litigation, with a special focus in property valuation and tax assessment disputes.
Based in Albany, we have served the Capital District, Upstate New York, Central New York and the Lower Hudson River Valley since 1990. We represent commercial property owners seeking to reduce their tax burdens, as well as a select number of municipalities, and occasionally handle large residential property tax appeals.
In addition to Albany, Troy and Schenectady, Hacker Murphy serves clients from Saratoga Springs to the Plattsburgh, from Utica to Binghamton, from Syracuse to Rochester, and in Poughkeepsie, Newburgh and south to Westchester County. We have represented a diverse range of businesses: shopping malls and retailers, office complexes, condominiums and cooperatives, golf courses and farming operations, private utility companies, and manufacturers.
Proven Results in Property Tax Litigation (Certiorari)
We have been successful in challenging tax assessments at the local assessor level, before Boards of Assessment Review and in appeals to the New York State courts. Led by founding partner David R. Murphy, a veteran trial lawyer and well-known authority of commercial property valuations, our Albany tax challenge attorneys have had notable results on both sides of these disputes, including tax reductions of more than $1 million.
