  • More senior drivers hit the road, so federal government steps up

    December 15, 2013

    The driving demographics of Hackensack are changing. No more is driving the sport of the young; rather, there are more and more older drivers on the road.

  • Obvious negligence, no criminal charges in New Jersey bus crash

    December 13, 2013

    Criminal and civil cases may overlap in time and evidence, but the outcome of the same case in each court may turn out very differently.

  • $25,000 judgment awarded in employment discrimination hair trial

    December 11, 2013

  • New Jersey bus, truck drivers were negligent but not criminal

    November 27, 2013

    An accident liability claim is not dependent on the filing of criminal charges.
