Celebrating Over 50 Years of Service

Real Estate

The one family residential real estate closing is an opportunity to provide not only the expertise expected to insure good title but also to work in conjunction with real estate firms and mortgage lenders, etc. to provide a seamless transaction. We strive to resolve all issues prior to closing and keep our clients informed of progress and aware of all costs involved so that the actual closing can proceed in a stress free environment.

In commercial, multi-family or industrial transactions, whether existing or to be developed, there are the same considerations together with the substantial issues involved in more complicated transactions including zoning, environmental, funding, occupancy and generally the development capability of the project. We have established our reputation in the area and in the field since the firm’s foundation and have participated in representation of many of the substantial commercial, industrial and residential developments in the area.

Land Use

Land Use is a most complicated area of the law. The analysis of the uses intended by a client for a parcel of property is the starting point for any project.

Is the property to be utilized for retail, assembly, manufacturing, warehousing, distribution or any combination of these uses? How is the proposed use to be carried out? How many employees? How much parking is needed? Is there a single or multiple shifts of workers? How much and what kind of truck movements will there be and at what hours? The questions are many.

After securing the necessary information, some of which is outlined above, there must then be a review of the applicable laws and ordinances. Does the municipality in which the land is located allow the uses proposed? Does the site to be used allow for the setbacks, parking and other land and building characteristics? Are there noise ordinances? Environmental issues? There are a myriad of questions to be asked and answered.

There must then be an analysis to confirm suitability of the proposed use in conformance with state law. Here again there are a myriad of questions to be answered.

When the project goes forward, we are uniquely situated by our long history in the area, experience in the field and knowledge of local conditions, to advance the application process together with the various experts needed to bring the project to fruition.

We have addressed issues for many projects in accordance with the foregoing criteria.

I retained attorney Steve Loewenthal to handle my personal injury case. Prior to our consultation, I was nervous  and still  unsure about what to do. Steve explained  the law, my options, and addressed all my questions or concerns about going forward. He’s an extremely knowledgeable attorney  who acts in a professional, respectful, and kind demeanor. He is direct and honest, does not make any ridiculous promises, or show any sign of unethical behavior.  Before  the depositions,  he explained the process, took the time to calm my concerns/fears, but most importantly, instructed me to tell the truth. I am aware of some of the negative stereotypes assumed about personal injury attorneys; however, Steve exhibits NONE of these negative qualities.

If you are a sports fan, you will love his office! His has an amazing assistant who was also very helpful! I did not call often but when I did, she knew who I was and exchanged pleasantries. With integrity and expertise, Steve succeeded in effectively handling my case. I do not share my experiences often; but in this case, Steve Loewenthal definitely earned my trust, respect, and my recommendation!

Driver, Client of Sharon L. Freeman, Esq.

Mr. Loewenthal represented me in a civil case. From the initial consultation to the settlement, Steve provided the most professional, knowledgeable and considerate level of service. Steve kept me informed every step of the way and took his time to explain each new development in the case.

Steve’s experience gave me confidence from the outset the case would be handled with expertise. He was able to coordinate between all parties involved and his negotiating skills resulted in a most favorable outcome. His staff was a pleasure to deal with and were very accommodating. Steve and his office went above and beyond and he comes with my highest recommendation. Thank You, Steve, for everything you did in handling my case.

Banker, Client of Sharon L. Freeman, Esq.

Mr. Loewenthal took my automobile personal injury case after 2 other law firms turned me down because of car insurance reasons that couldn’t get me a settlement. In NJ, you only have 2 years after your date of accident to pursue personal injury damage. I went to Mr. Loewenthal with my case close to 3 months before the 2 year deadline to sue. He walked me through everything that was going to happen, assured me that we have a case and worked hard on my case and met the deadline to sue. When Mr. Loewenthal called me withe settlement number, I almost fell off of my chair. He got me way more than I thought was possible, for I thought I was getting nothing because of the other lawyers turning my case down. Needless to say, Mr. Loewenthal is a “Jackpot!” lawyer and I recommend him 101% to anyone who wants a real lawyer.
