Accomplished New Jersey Civil Litigation Attorney

Ocean Township firm advocates on behalf of clients in a wide range of legal disputes

Disputes between individuals or entities are often litigated in civil courts. Most of these cases involve plaintiffs who seek financial compensation for the harm caused by defendants’ negligence or willful acts. However civil cases also include divorce and custody actions as well as cases in which parties petition for court relief. At The Law Office of Edmund F. Fitterer, Jr. in Ocean Township, I have more than 20 years’ experience as an attorney representing New Jersey clients in various types of civil litigation. Whether your case relates to a family matter, a tort claim, a property dispute, an injury caused by someone else or a breach-of-contract allegation, I will be an effective advocate for you.

Tort law claims

Someone who inflicts harm on someone else should be held accountable for their actions. As an experienced lawyer in Ocean Township, I handle a wide range of tort matters when someone is accused of wrongdoing in civil court. Cases can arise from negligent or intentional acts that cause damage to a victim’s property, financial interests, reputation, physical health or emotional well-being. Whether you’re seeking compensation from an individual or business or are being accused of tortious misconduct, my firm is ready to provide the effective advocacy you deserve. 

Divorces and other family law matters

Dealing with the end of a marriage or a parenting dispute is often highly emotional, but you need clearheaded legal counsel to help protect what is most important to you. In divorces, child custody conflicts, adoption proceedings and other family law matters, my firm provides skillful legal representation, tailored to each client’s situation and goals. You can rely on me to outline how laws on alimony, child support, property division and other issues apply in your case. From there, I will develop a strategy designed to achieve a resolution that is in the best interests of you and your children. 

Lawsuits seeking compensation for personal injury victims

If you suffer an injury because someone else did not act with proper care, you could face financial hardship as you try to recuperate. My firm advocates for New Jersey personal injury victims so that they can obtain the payment they need to cover their medical expenses and the lost income associated with a disabling medical condition. I also press for compensation to address the pain and suffering, permanent disfigurement and loss of enjoyment stemming from the injury. Whether your claim involves an auto accident, a fall on someone else’s property, a defective product or medical malpractice, my firm will work to maximize the amount you receive in a settlement or verdict. 

Skillful representation for cases stemming from property law conflicts

In property transactions and disputes, I draw on my wide experience successfully handling real estate issues and other civil matters. If you’re looking to buy, sell or lease a residence or commercial property, my firm will draw up the necessary paperwork and negotiate in your behalf for the best deal possible. Should a disagreement arise over a boundary, land use, vandalism, trespassing or another property-related concern, I will act quickly and effectively to champion your rights.
