Courtroom Success 2015-14: New Jersey Partner Christopher Martin and Associates Neil Tortora and Lina Corriston

New Jersey Partner Christopher Martin, along with Associates Neil Tortora and Lina Corriston, secured summary judgment in favor of our client in a real estate broker errors and omissions matter.
