Business Litigation


When disagreements with employers, businesses, neighbors, even government agencies cannot be resolved through negotiation or mediation, litigation may be necessary. At Belotta Law Firm, our attorneys investigate each client's case, consulting experts when needed in order to identify negligence and liability on the part of those who harm our clients.

In each case, we establish the legal standing of our client's complaint, evidence of harm done to them, and the financial impact of the damages involved. While we are always willing to consider a negotiated settlement, our primary objective is to restore our client to the condition they enjoyed prior to the harm done to them. In cases where a reckless disregard for the well-being of others or a brazen flaunting of the law is involved, we ask the court to consider punitive damages as well.

If you have questions regarding financial, personal, or physical harm you've suffered as the result of the actions of another, contact Belotta Law Firm today at (973) 474-2192. Available during regular working hours, our attorneys can evaluate your case and discuss the legal options available to you.

When negotiation fails, the litigation attorneys at Belotta Law Firm advise, counsel, and represent clients in a broad range of substantive areas, including:

  • Contracts
  • Creditors' rights and commercial collection  
  • Landlord tenant matters
  • Property damage disputes
  • Unfair business practice      
  • Unfair condemnations              

When to Contact an Attorney

Any time someone acts negligently or in flagrant violation of the law they are liable for harm they cause others. When businesses fail to adhere to contracts or when a property owner ignores an abandoned building that becomes an attractive nuisance, they are legally accountable for injuries and financial loss caused by their negligence. Even in cases where laws aren't necessarily violated but damage is caused, injured parties are within their legal rights to demand compensation. If, for instance, the value of a business or home depreciates substantially due to the actions of a government or city agency, compensation can be sought through litigation.
