Mr. Carone is also a lifelong Brooklyn resident. He is currently the Law Chairman of the Kings County Democratic Party and was recently appointed by Mayor Michael Bloomberg to the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission.
“We are extremely excited about joining the Abrams Fensterman firm,” says Judge Seddio. “Abrams Fensterman’s talented and well regarded team of seasoned attorneys will significantly extend the range of services we offer our current clients. I’m confident that our enhanced borough-wide and regional footprint will be attractive to the broad array of new businesses and industries that are moving into Brooklyn, which is quickly becoming one of the most exciting residential and commercial districts in New York City.”
