Significant Insurance Settlement for Contaminated Passaic County Commercial Property Owners

My family has been involved in an environmental action since the early 1990s when the State of NJ designated our property in Pompton Lakes as an environmental hazard. I have been extremely pleased and grateful to Lieberman & Blecher because they have located a major source of funding which has enabled my family to bear the sizable cost of the environmental cleanup which the State of New Jersey has levied on the owner of the property. With the help of Lieberman & Blecher, we received a very generous cash settlement. The money from the settlement is currently funding all of the environmental and legal costs of the cleanup and the on-going monitoring by the State. My family is very pleased to recommend Lieberman & Blecher to prospective clients who might benefit from their hard work and ingenuity. (J.R. and A.R., Los Angeles, CA; Sacramento, CA)

Monmouth County, New Jersey Commercial Property Owner Finds Relief from Environmental Concerns

After years of owning a NJDEP registered property with no real plan but a constant worry about how to get the property cleaned up, I searched on the web for a NJ law firm who specialized in environmental issues. Lieberman & Blecher was the first firm that appeared in my search so I called and made an appointment. Meeting Lieberman & Blecher finally gave me a glimmer of hope about the environmental nightmare I was living for so many years. During the initial meeting with Lieberman & Blecher I realized that I had found someone who knew exactly what position I was in, spoke the environmental language and knew what was and was not an option. In a short time, we made tremendous progress in not only having the property remediated but also having Lieberman & Blecher secure one of the large oil companies to participate in the financials of the clean-up.  (J.S., Neptune, NJ)

Princeton Homeowners Get Help Responding to a Fuel Oil Leak from an Underground Storage Tank

It was an absolute pleasure working with Lieberman & Blecher P.C.  My husband and I were dealing with an Underground Storage Tank (UST), that, despite having been certified as “decommissioned”, had leaked and had caused damage to our property.  Ms. Blecher was able explain to us our rights as property owners and walked us through the remediation process.  She coordinated efforts with our remediation company and insurance provider so that the cleanup process occurred properly and efficiently.  Ms. Blecher took what was an overwhelming issue and made the process smooth and easy-to-understand.  We truly felt that we had an advocate as we dealt with this difficult concern and would highly recommend her and her firm. (J.R., Princeton, NJ)

Commercial/Industrial Site Owner in Middlesex County, New Jersey Thanks the Environmental Lawyers at Lieberman & Blecher

I would like to personally thank Lieberman & Blecher for their help and advice to my family in dealing with an environmental cleanup issue. When it is a big company and their legal team against a small property owner, I have learned that you need an expert to protect your property and your rights. The team at Lieberman & Blecher did this for my family in a professional and cost effective manner. I would certainly recommend this firm to anyone in need of legal assistance. (C.K., Woodbridge, NJ)

Attorney Shari Blecher Fights to Recover Substantial Environmental Cleanup Costs at Former Gas Station Site

I met Shari back in 2011 during my initial meeting at Lieberman & Blecher. I was immediately impressed with her professionalism and confidence in that she could help me with the environmental issue on my property. With her experience in this field, Shari suggested a number of different avenues we could pursue as we collectively did more due diligence on the history of the property. After much discovery work it was identified that a large oil company had leased the property decades earlier.  After this discovery, Shari was not only able to track down the proper current oil corporation but more importantly succeeded in having them sign on to be responsible for a majority of the environmental clean-up of the property. Having lived for over 10 years with the fact that the property clean-up could ruin me financially, to hear the news from Shari that she had succeeded in securing financial responsibility from an oil corporation was unbelievable.  For the first time since I owned the property there was a now a legitimate path to having the property remediated.  That path was only possible due to Shari’s hard work, dedication to her clients, and her vast experience in the environmental field. 

Land Use Team Defeats Cell Tower Planned for Monmouth County Community

Members of my community retained the land use team at Lieberman & Blecher to oppose the development of a cell tower in our neighborhood. Lieberman & Blecher was thoughtful and attentive to our group’s concerns, and undertook the battle against this development as their own. It was a great pleasure to work with the team and we couldn’t be more pleased in our decision to hire Lieberman & Blecher. This is a group of lawyers who make a real difference in the lives of many people. (J.D., Holmdel, NJ)
