Our Firm

For over 100 years, Morgan Melhuish Abrutyn has been solving its clients’ problems.

At Morgan Melhuish Abrutyn, we excel at finding innovative ways to reach our clients’ goals in complex, challenging matters and have the results to prove it. We have devoted our practice to representing clients – whether individuals and small businesses or large corporations and governmental entities – directly and through their insurers in a wide range of civil defense litigation.

Dynamic and Persuasive Advocacy

Our attorneys are dynamic and persuasive advocates. They draw from a wealth of knowledge in defense litigation in order to provide professional, efficient and effective representation. They are proficient in handling all types of defense litigation – from professional liability and insurance coverage lawsuits to personal injury and worker’s compensation claims. They regularly defend our clients in lawsuits throughout the state and federal courts in New Jersey and the New York metropolitan area.

Effective Disposition of Cases

We appreciate that our clients need to know what their options are – and how we plan to solve their problems – as soon as possible. From the get-go, we use our substantial experience in order to streamline the evaluation of cases and to best advise our clients about what they can expect in their lawsuit. Our attorneys pride themselves on their ability to act as our clients’ go-to counselors, as well as their knack to discover unique and specifically-tailored ways to resolve our clients’ biggest personal and financial headaches.

We are always searching for the best – and quickest way – to dispose of a case. Our attorneys work to fix their clients problems at every stage of the case – whether it is moving to get a significant case dismissed on an early motion to dismiss, searching for a key piece of evidence to support a motion for summary judgment, trying a high-profile case or arguing a significant, law-changing appeal.

Balance of Advocacy and Cost-Effectiveness

Our attorneys also understand how to balance vigorous advocacy with cost-effectiveness. While we are ready to try cases and pursue appeals when necessary, we also recognize that lawsuits do not improve with age – they just cost more. We create constructive partnerships with our clients in order to continually reevaluate our cases to determine the best way to resolve them.

As attorneys, responsibility to our clients is our number one concern. We are devoted to our clients and welcome the opportunity to be their problem-solvers. For over a century, Morgan Melhuish Abrutyn has proven this commitment to its clients.
