A Professional Corporation for the Practice of Law

Specifics of General Practice

Real Estate Transfers.

We represent buyers and sellers of both residential and commercial real estate. We draft contracts, negotiate terms and conditions, review title searches and obtain surveys and compare and approve all aspects of a transfer. We also represent lenders who wish to secure their loans with real estate mortgages. We prepare all documentation and record all necessary securities. Many realtors refer their transactions to us as we are widely known to keep them in the transaction and copied on all interactions along the way to closing. We know that the parties want to make the transfer occur and we work hard to achieve your expectations.

Land Use and other Realty.

We represent individuals and companies before the Planning or Zoning Board or before the Municipal Council in order to address issues arising in connection with the use of real property or boundary issues or the vacating of municipal property. Settling gore, gap or overlap boundary disputes has us producing boundary line settlement agreements.  Adjusting Real Estate assessments using the process of Tax Appeals brings us regularly before the County Board of Tax Commissioners or the New Jersey Tax Court directly on properties.

Business Transfers

We represent buyers and sellers of small and medium size companies. We draft contracts after assisting in the establishment of terms and conditions. We satisfy all applicable state and federal laws and produce documents for title company and lender and construct the closing documents on schedule in satisfaction of our client's interest.  Our experience helps to keep the transaction on target and provides many alternatives to solve common problems.

Estate Planning

We review the desires and requirements of individuals seeking to establish a ground work for leaving assets to children, grandchildren and specific bequest beneficiaries. We produce simple and complex Last Will and Testament documents. Often we draft Living Trust and Irrevocable Trust documents to hold additional assets outside the terms of the Last Will and or make the life insurance to be obtained recognized as owned outside the taxable estate of the grantor. We produce Living Wills (Advanced Medical Directives) and also General Durable Powers of Attorney.

Collection

We represent a variety of individuals and companies entitled to receive money on account or as a result of a contract breach. We bring actions in the Superior Court of New Jersey, both in the Law Division or Chancery Division but also in the Special Civil Part in order to obtain a more prompt resolution in matters involving amounts of less than $15,000.

Domestic Relations

We represent individuals either plaintiff or defendant who wish to be divorced and need to have a complete property settlement and separation agreement developed. We negotiate the terms of the agreement and pursue the action in the Superior Court of New Jersey, Chancery Division.

Municipal Court Defense

We represent individuals who have received Summons and Complaint from a law enforcement officer due to an alleged violation of state or local law. We either require the prosecutor to present a trial of the charges or we negotiate a reduction of charges which may be accepted by the defendant.
