Your Shield and Sword Against Unfair Business Practices

by Evan Labov

 

Most of us are familiar with the Latin maxim “caveat emptor,” translated as “buyer beware”. While that admonition remains good advice to live by, it no longer accurately describes the law in the State of New Jersey.

Defamation Law

ColinI joined Hankin Sandman Palladino & Weintrob in 2008 after starting my career first as a law clerk in the Atlantic County Superior Court and then as an Assistant County Prosecutor in the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office.
