Mary Aufrecht is a partner at Clair Gjertsen & Weathers PLLC. She started her legal career as a personal injury and maritime law attorney in New Orleans, Louisiana. However, having been a native New Yorker, Mary returned to practice in New York and was fortunate to gain the experience of working under Ira S. Clair, Esq., the founding member of Clair & Gjertsen, Esqs.
Since her return to New York she switched her legal focus to foreclosure defense, bankruptcy, and real estate transactions while also engaged in civil litigation, estate work, appellate practice, and loss mitigation. She has honed her legal skills in these areas since 2013 by appearing in thousands of court appearances ranging from local to state to federal court. During this time, she has carved out for herself a place of respect within the New York State legal community. Mary has had her case law frequently cited in many of her peers’ arguments, and due to her efforts in zealously defending her clients, she has assisted in ensuring the rights of borrowers are upheld within the judicial foreclosure process with her winning legal arguments.
