Giants Kicker Has Memorable NFL Debut Day on and off the Field

A cum laude graduate of Boston University School of Law, Marc Rovner is an award-winning attorney with nearly 30 years of experience. He serves as senior staff attorney at BETA Abstract LLC, where he oversees the title insurance company's entire legal department. In his free time, East Rockaway resident Marc Rovner enjoys following his favorite National Football League (NFL) team, the New York Giants.

Despite the Giants losing the opening game of the 2017 regular season, it was a memorable day for the team’s rookie kicker, Aldrick Rosas. In addition to making his first career field goal in the NFL, he witnessed the birth of his daughter, albeit through a video-chat session. His girlfriend was scheduled to be induced the following day in California and he was going to make the cross-country trip, but instead she went into labor late Saturday night and had the baby early Sunday morning, hours before Rosas' first career game. On Monday, he hopped on a private jet with Giants co-owner Steve Tisch to meet his newborn daughter.

An alumnus of Southern Oregon University, Rosas went undrafted in the 2016 NFL Draft and eventually signed with the Tennessee Titans. He was among the team's final cuts last season and later signed a reserve contract with the Giants. In college, Rosas converted 97.7 percent of his extra point opportunities and made 25 field goals on 32 attempts.

The Two Basic Types of Title Insurance

For nearly 15 years, Marc Rovner, an experienced title insurance attorney from East Rockaway, New York, has served as general counsel and director of business development for BETA Abstract, LLC. As senior staff attorney for the company, Marc Rovner oversees business development in five offices in New Jersey, Florida, and New York.

Title insurance is divided into two basic types: a loan policy and an owner’s policy. The latter type protects the buyer and is often issued in the amount of the real estate purchase price. With this type of title insurance, homeowners’ rights are protected for as long as the owner or his or her heirs maintain an interest in the property. In some cases, this is true even after a property has been sold. Depending on the area, an owner’s policy is bought by either the buyer or seller of a property.

A loan policy protects a property’s mortgage or lender as long as they maintain an interest in a property. Most of the time, this interest continues until a mortgage is paid off. While a loan policy is in place, the validity and enforceability of a mortgage are maintained. When issued, loan policies are in the amount of the loan. A new policy is needed whenever an existing real estate loan is refinanced.

Rangers Sign Defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk

A native of East Rockaway, New York, Marc Rovner serves as a senior staff attorney for the multi-million dollar insurance company BETA Abstract, LLC. When he isn't working as an attorney for the firm, Marc Rovner enjoys attending New York Rangers games.

The Rangers have reached the National Hockey League (NHL) playoffs in 11 of the past 12 seasons, but have failed to win the Stanley Cup during that time. Last season, the team lost in the second round of the playoffs to the Ottawa Senators. In an effort to improve its chances at winning its first Stanley Cup since 1994, the Rangers made a splash in free agency by signing highly-coveted defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk to a four-year contract with an average annual salary of $6.65 million.

Expected to join Ryan McDonagh on the Rangers' top defense pairing, Shattenkirk gives the Rangers an element of offense from the blue line. The 28-year-old recorded a combined 56 points in 80 games between the St. Louis Blues and Washington Capitals in 2016-17. He has 298 points through 490 career games and has recorded at least 25 power-play points in each of the previous four seasons.

Puppy Love Pet Rescue in New Jersey - Adopt One, Save Two

An attorney from East Rockaway, New York, Marc Rovner serves as general counsel and managing director for Beta Abstract LLC. Outside of his work as an attorney, Marc Rovner is active in local animal rescue efforts. He and his daughters have helped save approximately 100 puppies through Puppy Love Pet Rescue, a completely volunteer-run animal rescue organization in New Jersey. 

Puppy Love Pet Rescue provides foster care services to adoptable cats and dogs in order to save them from neglectful situations or prevent them from being euthanized in crowded municipal shelters. Animals in the care of Puppy Love foster parents receive veterinary care that includes immunizations and sterilization before being adopted by loving homes. 

The volunteers behind Puppy Love Pet Rescue remind the public that for each pet rescued, the lives of two animals are saved. This is because in addition to the animal that is leaving the shelter, adopting a pet instead of buying one opens up space for another animal to be rescued. In this way, adopting one pet saves another from abuse or euthanasia.
