Alan Bernstein has been practicing for over 40 years. He received his B.A. from C.W. Post College (Long Island University) and J.D. degree from American University. While still practicing law, he was Vice President and Chief Lending Officer of a savings and loan, and was the CEO of a successful boutique securities firm he co-founded with Jerry Feldman. The firm dealt not only in real estate securities, but also managed public offerings, including that of a local bank.
Jerry Feldman has always been passionate about business and helping people. Both his parents and grandparents ran local businesses, and he spent his summers as a young man working at those family-run establishments. He grew up in Murray Hill and after earning his B.A. from the University of Maryland and his J.D. from the University of Baltimore School of Law, Feldman returned to Annapolis to start his career. For him, Annapolis is home; he wouldn’t think of practicing anywhere else.
