South Jersey lawyers offer years of varied experience.

When you meet with an attorney, you should ask very specific, detailed questions about his or her experience prosecuting malpractice cases and insist upon seeing a complete résumé. Make sure your attorney has the credentials, reputation and experience to handle a complex malpractice case.

We focus solely on personal injury law. Our attorneys have aggressively protected the rights of our clients for more than 30 years. When you retain us, you become more than a client; you become part of our family.
Nursing home residents are often unable to communicate for themselves. Family members should be alert to the signs of physical abuse:
• Any unexplained injury
• Bruises, cuts, black eyes, welts
• Broken bones, sprains, dislocations
• Open wounds
• Broken eye glasses
• Sudden change in behavior
To learn if we can be of assistance to you, please contact us to arrange a free initial consultation and case evaluation. You will pay no attorney fees unless we win. In many cases, we are able to get legal fees and costs paid for by the opposition.

A class action is a court device that simply allows a case involving many people who have been aggrieved or harmed in a common or similar way to bring a mass case in an efficient, economical manner. The class process is used, for example, in cases alleging or concerning: product defects and false advertising (consumer fraud), employment disputes such as the failure to pay overtime or illegal deductions from pay (employment), residential construction defects such as stucco defects or mass design defects (construction defect), overcharging in real estate transactions and Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act violations (RESPA), and oil spills (mass tort). In a class case, one or two named people stand in for the entire group of similarly aggrieved persons during the course of the litigation. These persons are referred to as lead plaintiffs or representative plaintiffs.

In family law, the slow real estate market and economy have caused an increase in the divorce rate. At the same time, it has decreased the amount of money that parties can spend to take their case to a judge. I see a move toward meeting with a mediator. The initial costs are similar, but the end results are achieved in a shorter time period. It is helpful to be able to offer that alternative.
Capehart & Scatchard
Amy C. Goldstein, Esq.
Mount Laurel
(856) 234-6800

We offer collaborative divorce, a new approach where the goal is resolving all issues in a non-adversarial manner, without going to court. Private information is kept out of the public record, children are better protected and the parties have greater control over the end-result, without leaving it up to a judge who may not understand your goals and needs. The parties are represented by collaboratively trained attorneys. Often, collaboratively trained financial advisors, child psychologists, family therapists and other experts assist with the process.

Musulin Law Firm, LLC

Today’s jurors can be cynical of you and your potential claim. Documenting negligent acts when they occur is crucial. Use your smartphone to take photographs of an accident scene, defective product or dangerous condition before this evidence disappears. Jurors are often most persuaded by this “early” evidence at the time of trial.
Rossetti & DeVoto, P.C.
Lou DeVoto, Esq.
Cherry Hill
(856) 354-0900

Much of your carefully crafted estate planning may be rendered null and void by a divorce. The law in New Jersey operates to automatically revoke any dispositions made to your former spouse in any “governing instruments.” While this includes your will, it is also much broader in scope. With that in mind, after a divorce, it is important to reconsider your estate planning, and then revise your will and update your beneficiary designations for any non-probate assets. Taking these important steps will give you peace of mind and ensure that your assets are handled and, thus, loved ones taken care of, in accordance with your wishes.
