Consumer Disputes and Consumer Fraud
Consumers are often unaware of their rights, and can feel helpless when treated unfairly in the marketplace. John and Jesse will provide you with an opportunity to explain your situation to us, and we will advise whether our legal representation might be appropriate for you.
New Jersey's Consumer Fraud Act and New York’s Consumer Protection Law protect consumers from unconscionable and deceptive business practices. So, in addition to whatever rights are spelled out in your consumer contract, you may have additional remedies available to you.
As the nation makes its way back from the depths of the COVID-19 crisis, there is a struggle to negotiate the balancing act between the collective good for the country and an individual’s freedom.
As late Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall wisely said, “The measure of a country's greatness is its ability to retain compassion in times of crisis.” This has never been more true than it is today.

Estate Planning, Administration, and Litigation
Do you have a current will, medical power of attorney, living will, durable power of attorney? If you hesitated for even a moment to think, what does “current” mean, the answer is no. We can help with your scalable needs.
Acting as a loved one’s Executor or Trustee is a powerful and meaningful way to honor someone’s memory. It is also confusing, time consuming, and full of pitfalls. What returns do you need to file and when? Does it matter which bills you pay in what order? What does an estate asset accounting look like and how do I get it approved--or do I even need to? Do not founder while beneficiaries ask why it is taking so long, get help.
We also have years of experience litigating complex estate issues from all sides: representing executors in disputes with creditors and beneficiaries, challenging a will or codicil offered into probate, prosecuting or defending against claims of conflicts, or administration. We will fight to protect your interests.
