Scott and Michael are licensed in state and federal courts in New Jersey and have decades of trial experience across all aspects of insurance defense, auto liability, premises liability, employment law, product liability, first-party property, subrogation and civil litigation.  Scott is also licensed in state and federal courts in New York. Elizabeth is admitted to practice in New York and New Jersey and handles complex matters in insurance defense and general liability.

Scott brings over 42 years of experience in insurance law, general liability, products liability, and construction litigation across the transportation, construction, funeral, and consumer products industries.  He handles insurance coverage matters and first party property claims defending lessors of heavy equipment and regularly litigates product liability claims both in New York and in New Jersey along with regulatory matters throughout New York and New Jersey.

Michael focuses his practice in the areas of general, premises, products, and auto liability defense, as well as major asbestos litigation and wrongful death actions.  With more than 25 years of litigation and trial experience, he regularly handles first-party property cases including conducting examinations under oath (EUO), fraud investigations, appraisals, and fact investigations.

Elizabeth represents national insurance companies in various litigation matters and focuses her practice on premises liability defense and auto liability. She also has extensive experience in both property tax and real estate law, and has advised lenders, borrowers, buyers, and sellers on various aspects of real estate transactions.

“One of the strengths of our law firm is our extensive trial experience, which enables us to effectively achieve the goals of our clients who face a dispute or suit,” said the firmwide Managing Partner Scott D.
