Jeffrey L. Saltiel - MANAGING PARTNER

Super Lawyers, 2018 and 2019 New York Metro

Jeffrey L. Saltiel is an influential litigator who for many years has aggressively represented residential and commercial clients in complex multi-faceted cases in landlord/tenant and real estate litigation throughout the Housing, Supreme, and Bankruptcy Courts.


In addition to his talents as a trial attorney who endeavors to leave no stone unturned, Mr. Saltiel has served as a Guardian Ad Litem in over 200 proceedings before the Housing Court and Supreme Court on behalf of individuals who were unable to represent themselves, often challenging administrative agencies to compel them to provide needed services. Having served as Vice President or Treasurer of the Kings County Housing Court Bar Association most years since 2002, he has often been called to testify as an expert in Housing Court proceedings on various issues. Mr. Saltiel is a sought-after lecturer, and has taught several continuing education courses for attorneys and real estate agents.


As a partner in Wenig Saltiel LLP, Mr. Saltiel works to make sure all clients of the firm are given the best representation possible and collaborates with partner Meryl Wenig to create strategies with the clients' best interests in mind using a client first approach. Mr. Saltiel’s practical business experience, his expertise as a real estate developer, and his sensible approach and knowledge of the law contribute to the success of Wenig Saltiel LLP on behalf of their clients.

His activities as a real estate investor provide him with different perspectives on real estate disputes, including the renting, repair, maintenance and operations of properties, thereby allowing him to anticipate the arguments of adversaries.


Mr. Saltiel regularly donates his time to serve as a Small Claims Arbitrator and in 2005 was honored by the New York City Civil Court as Arbitrator of the Year. When he is not practicing law, he has volunteered with various chapters of the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity, with Congregation B'nai Jeshurun and as a Judge with the NYC Urban Debate League.  He is currently a Trustee of the Jewish Lawyers Guild.

Jeffrey L. Saltiel has been selected as a SuperLawyer in the New York Metro Area since 2018. This is an honor that is awarded to top rated lawyers and outstanding attorneys. No more than 5 percent of lawyers are recognized in the New York Metro area. ​
