Debbie Hamerman is an experienced attorney with a diverse range of expertise across various legal areas. She began her legal career working for HUD (the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development), where she focused on the transactional side of law, representing HUD in insuring construction loans and dealing with low-income housing issues. During her time at HUD, Debbie also negotiated and reviewed co-ops and condos, prepared mortgage documents for reconstruction and refinancing, and handled the closing process from beginning to end for multifamily projects, hospitals, nursing homes and assisted living facilities.

Debbie’s legal experience extends beyond her work at HUD. She has worked at several law firms where she reviewed co-op and conversion plans, represented purchasers and sellers of residential properties, dealt with hazard insurance, real estate taxes, abatements, and zoning issues. She has also reviewed and negotiated leases, prepared lease abstracts, reviewed extensively title reports, and resolved title issues. Debbie has expansive and comprehensive experience in representing healthcare institutions, including hospitals, nursing homes, and assisted living facilities. In this role, she represented these healthcare institutions and negotiated with lenders, federal, state, and city agencies, in connection with construction and renovation projects. She also handled tax-exempt bond sales and leaseback agreements and obtained Certificates of Need to allow these facilities to operate.
