Steve Weiss in Buffalo Law Journal

May 10, 2016 Fortunate Timing Helps Weiss Make His Mark How did Steve Weiss get started and what drives him? He was recently featured in a Buffalo Law Journal article. “Steven Weiss is comfortable admitting that some of his success as an attorney and enjoyment of the practice he took up is a byproduct of fortunate timing. Like anything else, it took hard work and commitment, but the timing of his 1991 graduation from law school helped him be on the cutting edge of the creation of the Low- Income Housing Tax Credit for affordable housing. It had been five years since the federal government introduced the tax credits as part of a 1986 tax law overhaul, so it was still new to most in the legal industry.” Read Michael Petro’s full article on Steve Weiss by clicking on the link above....
