We worked with Chip. What can I say, when I called he called back , when I had a question he was ready with an answer, he even made himself available by text. We used Chip to settle an insurance Claim for faulty construction. We received what was due to us because Chip was smart and fought hard for the most money possible. I would highly recommend this firm, and would use them again if needed.View On Google
Commercial Real Estate Considerations
Rent DiscrepanciesIf the building owner is still working on the space you are going to rent, there may be a gap between your first payment and the actual date you move in. This can result in disagreements about how much is due and when.
Renewing a LeaseCommercial owners benefit from lengthier lease agreements and may want you to commit to the contract for several years at the start. A real estate attorney can review the lease agreement and negotiate a shorter period.
SublettingIf you have to relocate during your lease, subletting seems like the natural course of action. However, many landlords view this unfavorably. It is important to make sure the provision is in the initial agreement.
Non-DisturbanceIf the property is subject to foreclosure during your tenancy, you could be evicted and your contract canceled. A non-disturbance clause in your lease agreement allows you to remain on the property and finish your lease.
Real Estate in a Divorce Equitable Distribution of Property
Dividing real estate in a divorce can be extremely contentious. The state of New Jersey divides marital property equitably rather than a simple 50/50 split. Many disputes arise over who gets to retain a marital home as well as any rental or vacation properties. Similarly, a couple may argue about who gets saddled with any mortgage debt.
Since Dunne, Dunne & Cohen, LLC handles family law cases as well as real estate matters, our lawyers have ample familiarity with these issues and offer invaluable insight during your divorce.

Mr. Dunne III, "Chip," is an excellent attorney. He is aggressive when defending his clients, yet very patient and kind as he tentatively listens to his clients concerns. Moreover, when the other party is using delay tactics, Chip, does not take advantage to increase his billable hours. Worth every dime!View On Google
