Offering a Variety of Legal Services Since 1944:

Matrimonial and family law — Our ultimate goal is to resolve child custody, child and spousal support, property division, and other family law issues in a timely, cost-effective and amicable manner. At the same time, if a fair out-of-court settlement is not possible, we are prepared to aggressively litigate to protect our clients’ interests. Our Monmouth County attorneys are also proud to provide sound legal guidance and support throughout the adoption process.

Real estate and land use — We handle both complex commercial real estate transactions and residential closings, and clear zoning or permitting hurdles for developers. We also provide sound legal advice on avoiding and handling foreclosures, property disputes and related concerns.

Bankruptcy — Due to recent changes in bankruptcy law, many individuals and businesses who are seeking relief from overwhelming debt must weigh their options carefully when deciding whether to pursue Chapter 7 bankruptcy, Chapter 11 bankruptcy or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Our experienced bankruptcy attorneys will work hard to help you keep your business afloat or protect your family home from a foreclosure. We also represent creditors in bankruptcy proceedings.

Criminal defense — From traffic tickets and DWI to serious felony charges, our Monmouth County criminal defense attorney can help maintain your innocence or minimize penalties for conviction. We have significant experience and a proven track record of success in high-stakes cases, including:

Estate planning and probate — We provide comprehensive estate planning services, including drafting wills to prepare for death or incapacity, trusts to manage and preserve assets, and assisting executors or personal representatives in settling the probate estate of a loved one who has died.

Business and commercial law — Our veteran business attorney has helped hundreds of start-up companies choose the best entity for success, and assists with business transactions to assure a smooth conclusion.

Landlord-tenant law — We represent commercial and residential property owners in lease negotiations or eviction proceedings, and protect the rights of tenants in recovering security deposits or challenging illegal lockouts.

Civil and commercial litigation — Our experienced trial lawyers handle lawsuits for damages, or seek judicial relief, for any dispute involving breach of contract, divorce, negligence, real estate and business transactions.

Personal injury — If the negligence of others caused physical harm or emotional distress, we aggressively pursue compensation through settlement or trial. Our Monmouth County personal injury lawyers handle car accidents, slip-and-fall accidents, product liability claims, intentional acts, and other personal injury claims.

  • Amy Harris was the divorce lawyer for a family member.  My family member does not speak English and we supported them through the process while having extensive contact with Amy.  Though divorce is a difficult, cumbersome, and stressful time in someone's life, Amy and her office helped elevate the burden by supporting my family member through the entire process.  Amy's quick communication, professionalism, and patience were imperative in helping my family member get a divorce and feel cared for throughout the process, particularly with the language barrier.  I additionally appreciated Amy's willingness to often explain in layman's terms what each step of the process was to help us and our family navigate and be available to talk to us anytime.  We thank Amy and her office for her work and help to our family.
