Bonnie Link, Esq., practices in the areas of real estate and wills and estates. She is an exceptionally thorough and accessible attorney who has maintained her client base for the past 34 years of practice. The fact that most new clients are referred by existing clients speaks volumes to the caring and attentive manner in which Bonnie approaches all clients.
Bonnie was Of Counsel to Kardisch Law Group PC and its predecessor firm between 1996 and 2016. She maintained her own litigation and transactional practice between 1994 and 2002, concentrating on personal injury matters and trials (both for plaintiffs and defendants), real estate, and wills and estates. She was a senior trial attorney with The Law Office of Jerrold Cohen, Esq. (House Counsel to Interboro Insurance) from 1990 to 1994, handling all phases of personal and commercial lines, jury and non-jury trials, mediations, examinations under oath, and arbitrations through the American Arbitration Association and private panels, and she participated in training programs for risk and claims managers on insurance coverage and fraud issues. Bonnie held a similar position with Royal Insurance from 1989 to 1990 and was a trial attorney at Rivkin, Radler & Kremer from 1981 to 1989. Bonnie has authored several articles on insurance issues, has been a Faculty Member on the Hofstra University School of Law Trial Techniques Program since 2002, and has served as a common law and Federal Court arbitrator. Ms. Link also volunteers her legal services to homeowners in foreclosure actions at State-required Settlement Conferences in a Nassau County Bar Association program.
Bonnie Link has been a No-Fault Arbitrator for the past three years, an appointment bestowed upon her by the NY State Department of Financial Services (formerly, the Department of Insurance).
Bonnie graduated from St. John’s University School of Law in 1980, and while in law school, she interned at the Nassau County Attorney’s Office, Appeals Division and Corporation Counsel, Queens Family Court. She is admitted to practice in the State of New York and in the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York.
When the owners of a home-based day care center wanted to expand, they purchased a mixed-use (commercial/residential), building in a financially-distressed section of Long Island. They took out two loans to do so and began the renovation and permit application process. But before they could extend their day care into the building, a fire destroyed enough of it that the Town rescinded the Certificate of Occupancy. The only tenant, a church, continued to operate in an undamaged portion but the Town soon levied fines against the owners who, unable to collect rent, began to fall behind in their mortgage payments.
The owners retained KLG, and Bonnie Link, Esq., negotiated with the bank to keep the clients out of foreclosure and with the Town to get a final Certificate, and she appeared in court to answer the violations. Bonnie also helped the clients find private investors to provide capital for unanticipated renovations and to refinance the outstanding debt at a more current and highly desirable rate. When the arduous process was done, Bonnie had helped the clients fulfill their goals and made a larger day care center in a community which sorely needed one a reality.
