Newark: The Gateway City

Newark is, in many ways, the heart of New Jersey. The Garden State’s largest city and the seat of Essex County, it is the home to a diverse cross-section of residents, including newcomers and those whose families have lived in Newark for generations.

Newark is often referred to as the Gateway City, a nod to its waterfront location at the mouth of the Passaic River. It has long served as a key port in the New York metro region, among the busiest in the world.

The area was first settled in 1666 by English Puritans who moved from nearby Connecticut. A century later, Newark was incorporated among the state’s 100-plus original townships. The city’s name is believed to be a reference to England’s Newark on Trent, as well as an early local pastor who began his ministry in the U.K.

More recently, the city has been revitalized as an increasingly thriving metropolis with a rich cultural and historical tapestry. Its landmarks include the campus of Rutgers University, the New Jersey Performing Arts Center, and the Newark Museum of Art. That is not to mention Branch Brook Park, the oldest county park in the United States, known for its dazzling collection of cherry blossom trees.

More than 300,000 people currently call Newark home, along with major corporations like Prudential, Panasonic, Amazon’s Audible, and AeroFarms. Notable current and former residents include music stars Whitney Houston and Paul Simon, poet Amiri Baraka, author Philip Roth, actor and entertainer Queen Latifah, and film director Brian De Palma.

A Trusted Legal Advisor for the Newark Community

Newark litigation lawyer Daniel Silberstein has dedicated his career to helping people and businesses in the city resolve a broad array of legal disputes and related issues.

Commercial Litigation

Legal disputes are an unfortunate part of doing business in many settings. Although some fights may be unavoidable, how you handle them can have a significant and lasting impact on your business.

Disputes involving multiple businesses often raise questions under a complicated maze of federal, state, and local laws. That is particularly true in Newark, where businesses often interact with customers, vendors, and others from across the country and around the world.

Some of the most common sources of commercial lawsuits include:

  • Breach of contract
  • Employment disputes
  • Non-solicitation and non-compete restrictions
  • Partnership agreements
  • Shareholder disputes

The good news is that you do not need to go it alone. Mr. Silberstein works with a wide range of businesses, large and small, to spot potential legal issues ahead of time and resolve disputes effectively when they arise.

Consumer Law

Sadly, consumers are injured every single day by harmful and defective products, as well as deceptive business practices. 

Fraud is far too common in New Jersey and across the country. Although scams come in many shapes and sizes, what fraudsters have in common is that they use false or misleading information to lure in and take advantage of unsuspecting consumers.

The risk is not limited to dealing with shady, fly-by-night outfits operating in the shadows, however. Some of the world’s best-known corporations have been accused of ripping off the very customers on which they depend, using various forms of deception.

Fortunately, New Jersey has some of the strongest protection laws in the country. Mr. Silberstein can help you understand your rights and take action.

Personal Injury

Accidents can and do happen, whether it is an attack by a neighbor’s pet, a slip and fall in the local grocery store, or a multi-vehicle crash on a busy highway. These and other mishaps can cause serious and even life-threatening injuries.

Anyone who is injured in an accident in New Jersey has the right to seek compensation from those responsible (and often their insurers). It is vital to have an experienced personal injury lawyer in your corner.

It is also important to act quickly. State law imposes some strict deadlines, requiring people injured in accidents to file suit within the time frames or risk having their cases thrown out.

Condominium Litigation

Condos are a common form of home ownership in Newark and throughout New Jersey, but the laws surrounding them remain complex and often outdated. 

Condo boards often impose a variety of limits on how property can be used and assess penalties against those who do not comply. The problem is that individual owners’ interests regularly clash with those of their boards, which can result in protracted disputes and legal action.

An experienced attorney who understands both the law and the dynamics often at play in condo disputes can help you navigate and resolve them.


Going to trial does not necessarily mean that you will get the result that you expect or even deserve, especially in tough cases.

Appeals offer people and businesses another opportunity to get justice, but effectively trying cases at the appellate level requires a particular set of skills and experience.

Mr. Silberstein is an accomplished appellate lawyer who is pleased to be able to consult people and entities considering challenging a judge’s ruling or a jury’s verdict.
