Leader in NJ SBA Lending
Ms. Perdoni-Byrne is one of a few attorneys in the State of New Jersey to become a Designated Attorney under the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) 504 Loan Program. She has spent the past several months educating firm banking clients and contacts as to how the program works, how it is beneficial to their institutions and how it helps stimulate economic growth.
