Dov was involved in the private practice of law for fifteen years before devoting his principal time to the collecting, editing, writing, and publishing of scholarly research materials in landlord-tenant law. His writings include numerous articles in the New York Law Journal and the New York Times. He has written some eighty law books and some other works of nonfiction and fiction and is currently a partner in a Wall Street law firm where he manages the firm’s landlord-tenant department from his desk at his home in Berkshire, New York where he lives with his husband, FCC member, Tom Treiman, and their rather large cat, Macavity.

He has served as the principal consultant to the New York Times for landlord-tenant matters. Dov is the Chair of the Board of Advisors of the Apartment Law Insider.
