Dunne, Dunne, & Cohen
Compassionate Service for New Jersey Families
A Traditional Law Office
Focused on You
Our Avon-by-the-Sea office has a traditional law firm feel. We do not attempt to wow clients with unnecessary, luxury amenities. Instead, our focus is on building a trusting attorney-client relationship and winning your case.
When you come to our firm, you will meet directly with your attorney. This allows you to express any and all concerns to your lawyer and receive answers to each of your legal questions.
Our attorneys have spent their lives handling family law, personal injury, real estate, and criminal defense cases. We understand legal issues in any of these areas are life-changing. That is why we truly care about the importance and outcome of each case.
Our Commitment to Each Client
“Our mission is to zealously represent our clients in all areas of the law, helping them recover after serious personal injuries, sort out complicated matters regarding real estate, and maintain amiable relationships in the course of family law cases.”
