Types of  NJ Litigation Cases We Handle Nearby Your Area:

Breach of Contract

A contract functions as a private law governing the relationships between two or more parties. Those parties can be individuals, businesses, or the government. If and when necessary, the courts will enforce these private laws. Knowing that contracts will be enforced by our courts allows America’s commercial system to function.

Consumer Fraud

It’s very common for unsuspecting consumers in New Jersey to be victims of exploitation or deception by a service provider, product, or company. In short, they are victims of consumer fraud. New Jersey has one of the best consumer protection laws in place to secure consumers’ rights and receive what they pay for.

Insurance Claims

Often, innocent people struggle to get the fair compensation they deserve after filing insurance claims for their losses caused by property damage, personal injuries, etc. That is because insurance companies are typically not on your side, but rather focused on protecting their bottom line.

Whistleblower Claims

New Jersey laws encourage employees to report and avoid illegal activities in the workplace. New Jersey’s Conscientious Employee Protection Act, commonly referred to as “CEPA” or New Jersey’s Whistleblower Claims Law, is in place to help protect those who do.

NJ Conscientious Employee Protection Act (“CEPA”)

The New Jersey Conscientious Employee Protection Act (CEPA) is New Jersey’s version of a whistleblower statute that protects employees from retaliation by employers when those employees engage in certain protected activities. The protected activities under CEPA include:

  • Disclosure of illegal activities or, in the case of a health care professional, malpractice to a supervisor or a public body.
  • Providing information or testimony to a public body investigating any violation of law or regulation or, in the case of a health care professional, malpractice.
  • Providing information relating to deception or misrepresentation to shareholders, investors, clients, patients, customers, current or former employees, retirees, and pensioners, of any employer or governmental entity.
  • Providing information relating to perceived criminal or fraudulent activity that the employee reasonably believes may defraud any shareholder, investor, client, patient, customer, employee, former employee, retiree, or pensioner of the employer or any governmental entity.
  • Objecting to or refusing to participate in any activity, policy, or practice which the employee reasonably believes:
  • Violates a law, rule, or regulation, or for a healthcare professional, constitutes improper patient care.
  • When is fraudulent or criminal
  • It’s incompatible with a clear mandate of public policy in New Jersey concerning public health, safety, or welfare.

The protection against retaliation, when the employee makes a disclosure to a public body, only applies if the employee has previously reported the matter to the attention of a supervisor in writing and given the employer a reasonable opportunity to correct the problem. However, such written notice is not required if the employee reasonably believes that the issue is already known to one or more supervisors or where the employee fears physical harm due to the disclosure and the situation is an emergency.

Judgement Enforcement

When you have been injured or suffered damages and been awarded a judgment, in an ideal world, you will receive what the court has ordered the opposing party to pay you in full, and you could move on with your life. Unfortunately, this is not always the case, and in many instances, parties that have lost a judgment will do all they can, which sometimes is absolutely nothing, towards paying their debt to you. When this happens, you could use the assistance of an experienced judgment enforcement lawyer who knows how to move your judgment from a court order to money in your pocket. 

Legal Fees for Civil Disputes

Unlike other civil legal matters, typically you will not be able to hire a civil litigation lawyer on a contingency basis. This means you will pay as you go. Be sure to understand the lawyer’s fee structure clearly. Ask, what’s the retainer fee, and hourly rates? You can even ask to see a sample bill, so you know what to expect. At your consultation, a lawyer will discuss with you the fees associated with our representation. As with any business decision, it is important that the cost outweigh the benefits to your unique situation so that our representation most efficiently balances this consideration.
