Francis J. Hoegen, Member

Year Joined Firm


For the past 31 years Frank has represented National, Regional and Local business entities in cases involving Real Estate Tax Assessment Appeals or obtaining other forms of real estate tax relief (LERTA-PILOT). During that same period of time, Frank assisted clients with the purchase, zoning, developing, financing, leasing and other real estate needs. When the national economy has declined or when a company has encountered unexpected change in its financial status, Frank has assisted those companies with their debt workout/restructuring arrangements. More recently, Frank has advised and guided local developers with the acquisition and repositioning of former commercial building into mixed use residential and commercial facilities.
