Practice/Industry Group Overview
The attorneys on our State and Local Property Tax Team are skilled in representing taxpayers in all aspects of New Jersey state and local tax matters, including real estate tax appeals. Our experienced attorneys have handled matters before the New Jersey Tax Court, the Superior Court of New Jersey, and numerous County Tax Boards. They combine their skill with the knowledge and expertise of independent appraisers and experts in handling these matters.
Our experienced attorneys understand the value of handling cases efficiently, and therefore also participate in alternative dispute resolution in an effort to resolve matters economically for our clients. For real estate tax appeals, we offer a variety of fee arrangements, including handling the appeal on a contingency basis, to make the matter affordable.
