Personal Injury

Our firm has expertise in both New York and New Jersey personal injury law. If you have been injured through the negligence of another, choosing the best lawyer takes careful consideration. You need a lawyer with experience. Someone who will take the time and listen. Someone who understands the effects the injury has had on your life or the life of someone you love. We have the experience. We listen. We understand, and we can help.

We have represented clients in the following types of cases:

  • Automobile Accident
  • Slip and Fall Accident
  • Construction Accident
  • Police Misconduct
  • Assaults
  • Dog Bites
  • Food Poisoning
  • Defective Products
  • Medical Malpractice

If you cannot come to our office, we will come to you. We will do whatever we can to help you recover the compensation you deserve in a timely manner.

All of our cases are handled on a contingency fee basis, which means we never charge any legal fees unless we win your case.

The faster you call the faster we can get to work on your behalf. The longer you wait, the weaker your personal injury case becomes. Witnesses forget or move, physical evidence is removed, and claim filing deadlines run out. You need to act now to protect your legal rights.

Commercial Litigation

Our firm has represented numerous businesses and individuals in complex commercial disputes both as plaintiffs and defense attorneys.

We have represented clients in the following types of cases:

  • Breach of Service Contract
  • Denial of Insurance Coverage
  • Real Estate Property Disputes
  • Failure to Pay For Goods Sold and Delivered
  • Breach of Commission Agreements
  • Breach of Contracts for the Sale of a Business

Our firm is unique in that, in addition to traditional hourly fee arrangements, many commercial disputes can be handled on either a contingency fee basis or on a hybrid fee basis. Unlike a conventional hourly fee arrangement, in a contingency fee arrangement the client pays nothing unless the firm is successful, at which point they pay a set percentage of the total recovery, less disbursements. In a hybrid fee arrangement the client pays a smaller hourly rate and at the conclusion of their case they pay a percentage of the recovery.


Our firm represents both individuals and businesses in all types of immigration matters. Our founding partner, Joseph Mann, has over twenty five years of experience in immigration law.

Our legal services are notable for rapid turn-around service and for providing follow up and tracking of all immigration cases we take on. Our staff are fluent in Mandarin, Cantonese, Fujianese and Spanish.

For individuals we handle alien relative petitions for permanent status (green card), fiancée visas, as well as citizenship and naturalization proceedings. We also handle unusual visas, such as for religious workers, self-petitions (for abused individuals) and petitions for government informants. We regularly work on complex waivers for crimes, visa overstays, and the foreign residency requirement for J visa holders.

Some of the business immigration matters we handle include petitions for specialty workers, intra-company transferees, investor and trade visas, extraordinary petitions and waivers in the national interest, I-9 reviews, H-1B, P, O and E visa petitions and labor certifications.

Our employment-based immigration clients consist of multinational shipping companies, foundations, advertising agencies, religious institutions, and other small and large businesses in various industries.
