Schneider Buchel

About Us


From Passion to Practice

Our Story

Started more than 20 years ago by Managing Partner Marc H. Schneider, Esq., Schneider Buchel’s roots grew from Schneider’s own experience as the board president of his co-op in Great Neck, New York.

“I remember having to deal with residents knocking on my door at midnight when there was a flood or other problems,” recalls Schneider, “and being faced with how to practically handle these emotional issues. I think my experience as a board president really differentiates our firm from other attorneys in our area of law because I know what it’s like to sit on both sides of the table.”

Schneider has been practicing community association law for nearly three decades. His partner, Justin Buchel, joined the firm in 2009. Buchel, who graduated with a degree in physics from Emory University, previously worked as a patent attorney. Buchel’s skills in reviewing engineering drawings and specifications come in handy in his representation of community associations, which often have large construction projects (e.g., roof replacements, Local Law 11 work, etc.).
