New Jersey Landlord Tenant Leases

New Tenant, but same old lease?
You need an attorney.
Not all lease agreements are created equal. In drafting the lease, the landlord needs to look beyond the standard clauses of amount of rent owed, date it is due and the term of the lease. It is crucial that each lease is individually drafted for that individual tenant as each tenant can create their own individual set of future problems. Failure to consider this and use a template lease for all new tenants will result in future problems when it is time to evict the tenant and/or collect rent that is owed.

'Landlord should look into the tenant’s rental history, income, as well as family resources when determining what terms need to go into the tenant’s rental agreement. Not every tenant that qualifies financially is a necessarily a good tenant to have. In fact, some tenants winding up costing the landlord both financially and emotionally. 
These are the type of pitfall that can easily be avoided by using an experienced landlord-t…

Bankruptcy In New Jersey: Success After Bankrupcty

Despite the fact that we are six years after the recession. People are still struggling with their bills. We are often seeing that despite people finding work the pay is not the same. As a matter of fact people are probably making less that what they used to make 10 years ago.

I do see signs of recovery when I speak to past clients from which we keep in touch. People always have the fear that once they file for bankruptcy they would not be able to get credit or that nobody will hire them because of their credit history. These fear has keep them tramped with their debt for so many years.

I have also clients that become employed because they were not trapped with their debt and thus more appealing towards an employer. People don't realize that not having t…

Why Getting and Outside General Counsel is Cost Effective

Star Ups and Small Business are more than 50% of employers in America.  They have to maintain their inventory, their employees and the payments on track in order to succeed. Having their own in-house counsel  is just too costly.

The problem for a lot of this small companies and start-ups is when they try to do the legal work themselves. We see people with no legal background trying to file lawsuits, writing agreements and really getting themselves in a lot of trouble by not getting legal help.

For example writing non-compete agreement, is not as easy as you won't copy with me sign here. Choosing your corporate entity, bylaws, articles of formation. An attorney can help you because it would save you from a lawsuit in the future. In the construction world we see small contractors performing work without contracts and getting into a Consumer Fraud Act Violation.

Divorce Mediation in New Jersey: In looking for a Divorce Mediator.

Divorce Mediation in New Jersey
By: Marina Ginzburg, Esq.

I. What should you expect from a Divorce Mediator in New Jersey?

1) Impartiality. People that are seeking the help of a divorce mediator need to know that the mediator does not take sides. We listen to both parties positions, their expectations and their needs and make recommendations in accordance to the facts presented.

2) Fair Dealing: I am mentioning fair dealing because acrimonious process of divorce can have a painful and traumatic emotional reaction that often time one party gives up just to make the matter go away. This knee jerk reaction causes that party to put themselves in such as disadvantageous position that they may no be able to go back.

By taking out the stress and the emotion of going to court the couple can reach a mutually acceptable agreement.   I mention the word acceptable because nobody is going to get 100% of what they want that is the reality.  The fact that the couple can work together and reaching so…
