Chancery Court Attorneys in New Jersey

The law firm of Schiffman, Abraham, Kaufman & Ritter, P.C. is experienced with the intricacies of chancery litigation throughout New Jersey. Most litigation is resolved in civil courts. However, specific relief, such as an injunction or restraining order must be filed in the chancery division. Our chancery litigation attorneys, led by Lorraine A. Abraham, Robert L. Ritter, Paul N. Ambrose, Steven L. Davis, Evan L. Goldman and Daniel S. Eichhorn, represent small businesses, professionals and individuals facing disputes in the chancery court. For assistance in chancery court litigation, contact our experienced attorneys at Schiffman, Abraham, Kaufman & Ritter, P.C.

Chancery litigation is a time-sensitive, specialized and technical area of the law. Our lawyers have comprehensive understanding of chancery court procedures and can provide timely response when you need it done.

Our chancery practice is wide ranging. We assist clients seeking an injunction or restraining order over a broad spectrum of legal areas. We also provide representation to clients defending the imposition of an injunction or TRO. Our chancery practice includes cases involving:

  • Injunctions
  • Temporary Restraining Orders (TRO)
  • Protective Orders
  • Accountings
  • Mortgage foreclosure
  • Partitions of real estate
  • Receivership
  • Special Fiscal Agent
  • Shareholder actions
  • Dissolution of partnerships/joint ventures/corporations

In Chancery Court cases, the object of the litigation is to force the other side to perform a specific action or refrain from that action. Preventing someone from crossing your property when they lack an easement, or forcing an "accounting" from a business partner to accurately determine the assets of a business that is being dissolved are two examples. Injunctions generally are available only when there is no adequate remedy at law, meaning no amount of money damages will make you whole. Our attorneys vigorously represent clients and ensure their interests are protected.
