Our experience helps us see the underlying issues that other firms overlook and find solutions that may not be obvious.


We have been recognized as leading trial attorneys, litigators and mediators in New Jersey by our peers and multiple legal evaluation publications, including The Best Lawyers in America® (Woodward/White, Inc.) and Thomson Reuters, Super Lawyers®. We are members of invitation-only associations such as the American Board of Trial Advocacy, Litigation Counsel of America, and Inner Circle of Advocates.

Many of our attorneys are certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as Civil Trial Attorneys and Matrimonial Law Attorneys. Certification means that we have demonstrated an exceptionally high level of experience and skills in these areas, meaning that our clients can retain us with confidence that their case will receive the high level of service it deserves.


We have built our firm on a simple foundation – delivering client-focused representation with the primary objective of achieving the best possible results. Our client-first focus guides everything we do, from the first meeting until the case is resolved.

Helping you

Resolve Your Most
Difficult Issues


Family Law

Familial conflict can be emotionally devastating. Whether you are embroiled in conflict or simply trying to find a solution to a difficult issue, we understand that family law issues are among the most deeply personal and therefore require a high degree of sensitivity coupled with compassionate advocacy. We help individuals and families navigate whatever issues they may be facing to help them get to a better place, whether it’s obtaining a divorce or getting a fair child support order in place. In other situations, we help our clients manage the potential for conflict using tools such as a prenuptial agreement or guiding them through the implications of a civil union. 


Medical Malpractice

We place tremendous trust in our healthcare professionals to care for us when we need it most. But, unfortunately, mistakes happen—some due to simple negligence and others due to indifference or recklessness. But because there are no guarantees regarding medical treatment, proving medical malpractice can be incredibly difficult and practically impossible for non-lawyers. You need a knowledgeable, experienced medical malpractice lawyer on your side who can help you hold the person or entity accountable for the harms and losses you have suffered. We begin with a careful assessment of your case to determine whether malpractice occurred and then work with you side-by-side to develop a strategy focused on getting the justice and maximum compensation you deserve.


Personal Injury

An unexpected accident can change your life forever. The law recognizes your right to be made whole, from medical bills to lost income to pain and suffering. Unfortunately, getting the compensation you need to rebuild your life can be extraordinarily difficult. Insurance companies focus first on their bottom line, meaning they want to pay as little as possible on your claim. In many cases, litigation may be your best option for getting the compensation you need, but the legal system can be nearly impossible for non-lawyers to navigate. You need someone on your side, someone who knows how to get justice and the maximum compensation for your injuries. We handle all aspects of the injury claim process, both inside and outside the courtroom, so our clients can focus on making a full recovery.

Compassionate Advocacy, Aggressive Litigators

We take the time to understand the problems you face, personal, practical, and legal. But our adversaries see us only as zealous advocates and aggressive litigators who work tirelessly to get the results our clients deserve.
