Sad news: Our Attorney Jacques Rose has died.

We learned with great sadness that the tenants' association's attorney Jacques Rose died suddenly on May 26, 2008.

Jacques represented us - victoriously so far - in our dealings with DHCR on "unique or peculiar" increases and on garage rents, and in court on both issues.

With representatives of the two other buildings whom Jacques represented, we will be meeting with another partner of that firm who does court work and investigating all our options in terms of representation.

We extend our condolences to his wife and law partner Carol Ule, who represented us as we went through the Mitchell-Lama buyout.
