She has growing experience in the areas of trusts and estates, employment, and construction litigation, including work on behalf of clients in the building industry and academic sector.

  • In December 2017, Ms. Hsieh testified before the New Jersey Senate Community and Urban Affairs Committee regarding proposed legislation (S3499) that would allow a full or partial credit to be applied towards a water/sewer connection fee payment based upon a previous payment of a connection fee and/or history of service charge payments, as well as establish a reduced connection fee for all affordable housing projects. The purpose of the legislation is focused on facilitating redevelopment by mandating that only the delta of fees should be paid where there was a prior use of property and the property had been paying into the sewer or water systems. Hsieh and GRSD partner Robert Goldsmith worked closely with the New Jersey Builders Association and the Association of Environmental Authorities for over two years to draft this legislation.
