New Jersey Litigation Attorneys for Civil Disputes
Civil Litigation is broadly defined as any dispute between parties which could end in a formal lawsuit or any other alternate dispute resolution forum like arbitration or mediation. The term “Civil Litigation” is distinguishable from criminal defense work which will always involve the “State” as a party pursuing an individual for a violation of a criminal statute or ordinance. The civil litigation attorneys at Einhorn Harris have significant experience in all types of matters and have tried cases in federal, state and administrative law courts.
Consumer Protection & Fraud
New Jersey law offers extensive protection to consumers in their dealing with commercial entities through the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act. Consumer fraud is “any unconscionable commercial practice, deception, fraud, false pretense, false promise or misrepresentation” in connection with the sale of goods, services or real estate. The Einhorn Harris litigation team is familiar with the Act and has invaluable experience presenting such cases to a jury. They advise consumers of their rights and counsel them on the three Consumer Fraud Act violation types; Affirmative Misrepresentation, Knowing Omissions and Violation of Laws. The Einhorn Harris litigation attorneys are also experienced in representing commercial entities accused of violating the Consumer Fraud Act.
Chancery courts are considered courts of equity. Matters are properly venued in the Chancery courts when monetary damages alone will not resolve the dispute. Business disputes in Chancery often involve employment contracts and issues of competition and solicitation. The matters are often initiated by a mechanism known as an Order to Show Cause in which one party seeks to restrain another party from taking certain actions. Parties litigating a matter in Chancery are not entitled to a jury trial. Often, business disputes with issues other than money are best decided solely by a Judge. The litigation attorneys at Einhorn Harris appear regularly in the Chancery Courts around the State.
Occasionally, when an individual passes away, disputes arise over the disposition of assets. These disputes are litigated in the Superior Court of New Jersey, Chancery Division, Probate Part. The civil litigation attorneys at Einhorn Harris are experienced in estate disputes and have appeared in Chancery Courts throughout the State advocating the positions of our clients.
