We are pleased to announce that Robbin E. Sweeney has joined Allyson Lanahan, of Lanahan Law, LLC and Anne R. Aicher, of Hollis Laidlaw & Simon, as Co-Chairs of the Real Property Committee of the Westchester Women’s Bar Association.
Robbin’s concentration includes the purchase and sale of residential real estate, estate and trust planning, and estate administration and settlement. Her clients are located throughout Westchester, Queens, the Bronx, New York, Kings, Putnam, Orange, Rockland, Dutchess, and Sullivan Counties. She has over 35 years’ experience in real estate, commencing as a real estate agent and working for Merrill Lynch Mortgage Corporation before becoming an attorney in 1987. Her clients range from first-time home buyers who appreciate her ability to supply emotional support with her legal expertise, to seasoned and high-end buyers and sellers, to sellers who are at the down-sizing stage of life. Her legal experience, combined with her Masters in Mental Health Counseling and certification as a Professional Coach, have honed Robbin’s calm, focused, solution-oriented and organized approach. Robbin works hard to create an attorney-client relationship which also gives her clients practical guidance, support and confidence needed during one of life’s typically most-stressful transitions.
Allyson, Anne and Robbin are looking forward to the coming 2020-2021 year, commencing with the first Real Property Committee Meeting scheduled on September 15, 2020 at 1:00 PM. Although the pandemic has created challenges for many of us, both personally and professionally, they hope that the continuation of the Zoom meeting format, whether for all meetings or in part, will increase the ability of their real estate colleagues to participate in future meetings with ease and obtain the benefits intended by membership. They are pleased to announce that the first meeting will be presented by WWBA member, Jean Partridge, Chief Counsel and Managing Member of Benchmark Title. Jean will be focusing on many of the overlooked or misunderstood title issues that, whether representing a buyer or seller or conducting a residential or commercial transaction, attorneys should be prepared for. Jean will be answering questions too.
