Litigation

The firm regularly represents plaintiffs and defendants before state and federal courts, administrative agencies and in alternate dispute resolution forums, including arbitration and mediation. Our litigation practice group recognizes that a lengthy litigation is sometimes necessary and cannot be avoided but we also employ tactics and techniques aimed at obtaining a favorable disposition without a trial. Where a settlement cannot be reached, our attorneys have the expertise, experience, resources and commitment to prepare and try a case successfully before a judge, jury or arbitration panel.

In addition, our firm has substantial experience in handling matters where a client’s business relationships and public image are at stake. We work closely with our clients to select experts, control costs, and develop effective and efficient litigation and settlement strategies.

Some areas of law in which our firm litigates disputes include:

  • General Corporate, Commercial and Business
  • Construction
  • Employment
  • Land Use and Real Estate
  • Environmental
  • Wills, Trusts, and Estates
  • Insurance Claims
  • Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice

The firm has successfully represented a diverse group of clients including construction, pharmaceutical, trucking and transport, product testing, telecommunications, insurance, and land development companies.

Appellate Practice

The firm’s litigation group also has extensive experience before appellate courts and agencies in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and the surrounding areas.

The attorneys in the appellate practice group work diligently to develop a strategy for success on appeal and make certain that the right issues are raised on the record while the case is at the trial level. Our attorneys also regularly prepare and submit petitions for appellate review, research and write persuasive appellate briefs, prepare and present compelling appellate arguments, handle public and quasi-governmental agency appeals before regulatory bodies, and prepare amicus curiae briefs.
