A Personal Note From Nancy Chillag on Her Retirement:

As you may know, I have always been passionate about real estate. I am a real estate broker and have invested in real estate for decades and have never grown tired of it. 

When clients would come to me to review a commercial lease, the first thing I would ask them is “Have you considered buying a building instead of renting?” Recently I have been spending more and more time with real estate investing and I realize that I cannot continue to properly serve my clients without my full attention on my law practice. 

I, therefore, have decided to retire from the practice of law and devote my full time efforts to real estate. I am quite excited about this new direction for my life, but at the same time very sad about leaving my law practice and all my wonderful clients.

I have loved working with you and am truly honored that you trusted me with your legal needs. For many of you I have provided services not only to you, but to your parents, children and friends.  I have felt like a member of your family. I will always treasure that special bond.

I know this comes as a surprise to many of you, and you are thinking “What am I going to do now for legal advice?”  I made sure that you would be well cared for in my absence.  My associate, Gary Brainin, whom you may know, will be taking over the practice and will continue to offer all the legal services we have provided in the past.  

Gary has been with Chillag & Associates since 1997 and is intimately familiar with all of our clients and procedures. He has been involved in every client case in our office. He is excited about the opportunity to head his own firm and is looking forward to continuing a relationship with our clients for many years to come. I have no doubt that you will be in good hands.  Gary obtained his undergraduate degree at Brandeis University and his law degree from Stanford University, where he was a member of their prestigious Law Review. His research skills are impeccable and he is passionate about finding the best legal solution for our clients.
