Spitalnik & Spitalnik is a boutique firm focusing on Construction and Commercial law. We handle all business-related law matters from the creation of the business (drafting partnership agreements, LLC operating agreements) to corporate dissolutions and all issues in between.
Josh Spitalnik has devoted over a decade to the practice of construction and commercial law. He received his Bachelor of Science in Human Development from Cornell University and went on to earn a law degree from Brooklyn Law School. Following graduation, he became an associate at Cohen & Krasner with a concentration in construction law, commercial law, and consumer debt collection. Later, Josh became a partner at the Law Offices of Melvin J. Kalish, PLLC, representing construction clients in all matters of the industry and commercial law.
Prior to law school, Josh worked as a senior buying assistant for Loews Cineplex Entertainment, handling purchasing for the construction of new movie theatres throughout North America. This background allows him to bring a real-world perspective to his clients’ legal matters and to remain proactive to avoid litigation.
When he is not in the office, Josh loves spending time with his two rambunctious boys and beautiful wife. He is also a life-long baseball fan who travels around the country in an attempt to see every baseball stadium.
