Why hire a local New Jersey lawyer
We are lawyers who pride ourselves in delivering top quality legal services to local New Jersey clients in Passaic County, Bergen County, Essex County, Hudson County, and Union County. We appear very regularly in the Superior Courts in those areas, as well as the municipal courts in many of the towns and cities in those counties. We also represent certain clients in Middlesex County, Morris County, Sussex County, and the surrounding areas, as well as New York City. If you are looking for a lawyer, you should know the advantages of hiring a local attorney.
Judges always strive to be non-biased and fair. Please do not think that ANY lawyer can persuade a judge to favor your case because the attorney is friendly with the judge. But a local attorney is often able to deliver better services because they are more familiar with the local customs of each court. We are better able to handle scheduling and shorten the length of time that you may have to wait in the courthouse. We are able to file court papers quickly. Being familiar with a judge will give us clues as to the types of arguments that the judge may find more persuasive and the types of things that judges in the local area like to see when making applications, filing motions, or arguing at trial. It is a big advantage if your local attorney can better estimate how a judge will likely rule on a motion or application, and how much time a certain matter may take. Also, many courts have very different policies and procedures regarding adjournment requests, request to extend time for discovery or motions or other filings, scheduling trials or hearings, etc. Since we are familiar with these areas, we are better able to handle a case in a way that is least intrusive and inconvenient for the client.
