Government Agency Challenges
General Litigation

That is all that we do. No estate planning, no divorces, no probate.

At Lieberman Blecher & Sinkevich we do not try to be all things to all people. Rather, we concentrate our efforts so that we can really master our fields. Whether it is a cap-less landfill, a contaminating neighbor, a defective product, a smelly incinerator, an illegal Planning Board approval, drinking water that cannot be consumed, or a company that ignored its contract, we are the “right law firm.”

Our clients are as diverse as the cases they bring to us. They include developers, individuals, citizens groups, industries, factories and municipalities.

“Dirt Trenches to Courtroom Trenches”

Our practice often takes us from dirt trenches to courtroom trenches. To understand a wetlands cases, you need to see the wetland and evaluate the issues by seeing them, smelling them and touching them. To do what we do, you must be “hands on,” which means you need to leave your office sometimes.

Often, Lieberman Blecher & Sinkevich lawyers meet with the DEP in Trenton and with the EPA and other regulatory agencies. In many cases, disputes can be resolved through discussion — but that happens only after your lawyer understands all of the facts and legal issues.

A lawyer must be well versed in environmental law in order to properly become involved in it. Our lawyers and paralegals do this work every day of the work week. And we practice New Jersey litigation every day of the week.
