Welcome to the LI Law Podcast.  We feature legal issues and developments which affect Long Island residents and business owners.  The podcast focuses on Long Island law topics and includes greater New York court and legislative happenings.  If you are one of the approximate 8 million residents of Long Island (Nassau, Suffolk, Queens, and Kings counties), or want to enjoy all law-related matters on Long Island, this podcast is for you!

Your host, Zehava Schechter, is an attorney admitted to the New York Bar for 30 years.  She concentrates her private practice in estate planning, administration, and litigation; real estate law; contracts, and business formation and dissolution.  If you like this podcast, you may want to look for Zehava’s monthly articles in the Malverne/West Hempstead Herald and the Beacon newspaper.

Our guest on this 5th episode is Thomas Casill, who started his career in the New York Title Insurance industry in January 1976 when he accepted a job with First American Title Insurance Company.  Tom left First American in 1986 to start MacGregor Abstract Corp, which has issued since then hundreds of thousands of title insurance policies that cover every type of real property: homes, commercial buildings, resorts, marinas, houses of worship, and farms.
