STILL UP AND RUNNING

Cohn Lifland has been providing legal services to our community since 1924 and we have continued to do so throughout this crisis. Beginning July 6, our attorneys and staff are returning to the office, in a limited and responsible way. In accordance with government and building guidelines, fewer than 50% of us will be in the office at any given time. The rest of us will continue to work remotely to meet your needs. If you need to meet with our attorneys, we will schedule the meeting, as appropriate.
 
Do not hesitate to contact us by email, phone (201-845-9600), and our website (www.njlawfirm.com). We remain ready to discuss your legal issues. If you want to reach any specific attorney, you may go to his or her biography, click on his or her name and send an email directly.
