The new office will provide greater access to immigrants who live in New York City but outside Manhattan. The Bronx location can be accessed via bus through the BX1-LTD, BX1, BX2, BXM4, BX32, BX18, BX11 routes, and subway (D, B and 4 trains to Fordham Road Station).

The Bronx location also holds special meaning to Kerry Bretz, Partner, Bretz & Coven, LLP, having grown up in the area and attended Cardinal Spellman High School and Herbert H. Lehman College of the City University of New York. He is also involved at Bronx Judo and Martial Arts, a nonprofit martial arts studio where he teaches judo to local children.

“The new Bronx office will provide a more centralized location for the immigrant community who lives outside of Manhattan,” said Mr. Bretz. “It will also allow us to expand our clientele to more non-citizens living in the Bronx — as well as New York City — who seek to obtain work visas or permanent residency.”
