About our Livingston, NJ: office

We pride ourselves on our ability to balance responsiveness to the needs of our clients with a professional concern for excellence and cost-effectiveness of our legal services. The Firm is able to handle the needs of clients throughout the entire State of New Jersey and the New York metropolitan area from its offices located in Livingston, New Jersey and in the Wall Street district of Manhattan.

A lawsuit does not improve with age; it just costs more. Morgan Melhuish Abrutyn is committed to the goal of effective and efficient legal representation. The Firm strives early in each matter to establish a constructive partnership with the client. The lawyers seek involvement of the client in the evaluation, strategy and disposition of a claim or suit. No significant decision is made, or expense incurred, without client consultation and approval. The foundation of a good litigation plan is involvement, management and control. The client's cases are regularly reviewed to determine if they can be resolved cost effectively, without further litigation. The Firm and the client share a common objective - the prompt and successful disposition of lawsuits.

It is the Firm's policy to vigorously defend each case without duplication of effort and without unnecessary legal activity. Toward this end, the attorney assigned to each case develops a Litigation Plan and, if the client requires, a budget. Together, the plan and budget allow the attorney and client to consider litigation strategy before each important phase of the case.

Once discovery commences, the client works contemporaneously with counsel on all major developments. As significant facts are revealed through the litigation process, the Litigation Plan is revised to reflect the changing factual and legal scenario. Usually one attorney will be assigned to a case, unless circumstances require additional help; any additional staffing is discussed with the client. Deposition summaries are kept factual, succinct and include a brief analysis of the impact of the witness' testimony. Should significant legal research be required, the attorney will contact the client and explain the need for such research. Legal research is conducted at the most appropriate level - associate or law clerk - to provide cost effective results.

Although resolution prior to trial is always the preferred outcome, some cases must be tried. Our attorneys have extensive trial experience in state and federal courts. Several are Certified Civil Trial Attorneys. Their experience ranges from the most ordinary personal injury case, to the most complex professional liability case. And, unlike other firms, many of our senior partners personally try the more significant cases. We are also particularly proud of our appellate practice. The Firm has had many significant cases decided in the New Jersey Supreme Court and Appellate Division, where we have made significant contributions to New Jersey law in the fields of insurance, professional liability, products liability, and general liability. The Firm is pleased to report similar success in the New York Court of Appeals and Appellate Division (First and Second Departments). Frequently, our appellate expertise is called on by clients to prosecute and defend appeals where the lower court matter was handled by another Firm.
