A Legal Team Here To Fight For You!

As a rule, our firm refuses to settle cases before pursuing litigation. If taking your case to a jury is the best way to get results for you, that is what we will do. This involves thoroughly investigating your case and developing an aggressive strategy to pursue the compensation you deserve.

As a civil trial attorney, certified by the National Board of Trial Advocacy, our law firm knows what to do to assert your rights in and out of the courtroom. Our father and daughter legal team understands how issues related to comparative negligence in New Jersey may affect your case. In New Jersey, the defendant must be over 50 percent responsible for the accident in order for you to recover monetary damages. Let us explain to you what this means for your right to recover damages.

As a law firm committed to fighting for the rights of the injured and disabled, we will exhaust every available option to help you obtain monetary damages related to:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • Pain and suffering
  • Out of pocket expenses
