Personal Injury / Negligence

We have developed a high quality personal injury practice which allows us to help seriously injured clients obtain fair and just compensation for suffering caused by the negligence of others. We have recovered millions of dollars for our clients, and as personal injury cases are generally handled on a contingent fee basis clients only pay legal fees if there is a recovery.

Consumer Protection & Class Action

New Jersey consumer protection laws are among the strongest in the country, allowing us to pursue cases for individuals who have been damaged as a result of misrepresentation and fraud. Our class action practice includes cases in New Jersey and throughout the country.

Commercial / Business Litigation

We handle all aspects of commercial disputes, matching the necessary resources to the needs of our clients. Our approach is to gain a thorough understanding of our client’s objectives in order to achieve their goals through litigation, mediation or arbitration. We pride ourselves on working out economical ways to solve complex business disagreements.
