Our firm began in August 2000; however, the individuals involved have worked together under other professional auspices. The current members fo the firm, Virginia Barrett, Scott Lazar, and Michael Garrett, worked together for some time at a law firm in Parsippany, New Jersey. As a result of his exceptional work with the firm on behalf of carriers and insureds and his successful trial work, as of September 1, 2005, Mr. Garrett was made a partner in the firm. Before founding the firm, Ms. Barrett and Mr. Lazar worked at the Newark, New Jersey office of a national law firm headquartered in New York City. Mr. Schuley is also licensed in New York and New Jersey, and has spent his entire legal career in the insurance defense and coverage field. Dale E. Hibbard, a veteran New York trial lawyer, is of counsel to the firm. He is admitted in New Jersey as well. Lisa A. Lehrer joined us as an associate in April 2008. Ms. Lehrer has experience in insurance defense and is licensed in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Louisiana.

We specialize in litigation, including all aspects of insurance defense, auto liability, premises liability, employment law, product liability, first party property, subrogation and commercial litigation. Our practice encompasses the states of New Jersey and New York at both the state and federal levels. We provide legal services in property and casualty areas in litigation, involving tort claims against municipalitites; against trucking entities; in environmental lawsuits, including lead paint and asbestos litigation; and in numerous insurance coverage matters including surplus lines. We also litigate the defense of employmnet law matters, including claims of violations of the Civil Rights Act, the Law Against Discrimination (LAD) and litigation alleging wrongful termination and sexual harrassment.

The firm has been involved in several high exposure actions involving claims of adulterated food products in both the Federal and State Courts. We have worked closely with epidemiologists, vendors and manufacturers in defending these claims. These suits have included both E. coli 0157:H7 and listeriosis claims.

We offer more than 40 years of litigation and trial experience. Unlike other firms, we have a depth of actual trial experience. We have produced informative seminars for our clients, both on request and on a voluntary basis, and we have also participated as lecturers in continuing legal education seminars.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
