- Of Counsel
If you are being sued or are contemplating filing a lawsuit in New Jersey, it may be prudent for you to hire an attorney. If you don’t know where to begin your search for legal help, consider the following when looking for an attorney to represent you in your legal matter.
Experience is important when choosing a lawyer. You will want an attorney who is actively practicing law in the area in which you need counsel. For example, if your company is being sued for copyright infringement, you want a business lawyer who has experience with copyright cases. When looking to hire an attorney, it is acceptable to ask law firms about their specific experience in areas of the law and the success of their attorneys in settling and litigating cases.
Where an attorney or law firm is physically located is also an important factor to consider. Ideally, you should find an experienced law office or attorney close in proximity to you or your opposing party.

In May of this year, New Jersey joined the growing number of states to enact paid sick leave laws. The New Jersey Paid Sick Leave Act is currently in effect and below you will find certain information that is important for all New Jersey employers to understand.
Who Does it Affect?
The Act applies to New Jersey employers of all sizes, including businesses that are based elsewhere but have employees located in New Jersey. While several New Jersey municipalities already had paid sick leave ordinances, this new state law preempts them, meaning they no longer apply and employers throughout the state are now subject to one consistent set of requirements.
The Act does not apply to a few narrow categories of employees: (1) construction industry employees working under collective bargaining agreements; (2) per diem health care employees; or (3) public employees who are already provided with sick leave with full pay pursuant to any other state law, rule, or regulation.
