HMGDJ proudly welcomes our newest partner JESSE GRIBBEN

Jesse has a long distinguished career as tenant attorney and employee-side labor attorney. He has been with the firm since 2016 and during that time has won many victories for tenants and employees, including a game-changing decision that bars a landlord from collecting rent when a building does not have a valid Certificate of Occupancy and an important victory for immigrants seeking succession to regulated apartments. Jesse's strong commitment to tenants and employees, sharp intellect and energy, will add immensely to the firm in the years to come. Jesse is also the son of William Gribben, a long-time partner at the firm and we are all thrilled to have the best father-son tenant attorney team in NYC.
