About Christopher

Learn Christopher’s areas of practice.

Upon graduation from American University, Washington College of Law, I practiced law in the Washington D.C. area before relocating to New Jersey in 1999.     I  represent individuals, businesses and churches in the finance, purchase and sale of houses, businesses and places of worship, and in variance, zoning and redevelopment matters.   I  also represent people in divorce, custody, alimony, distribution of marital property, child abuse cases, drafting of  Contracts, Wills and general litigation. 


My clients come from all economic, racial, ethnic and social backgrounds and my practice has grown over the years mainly due to referrals from satisfied clients.  I fight aggressively to get the best results for my clients and I handle every case with individualized attention, dedication and professionalism. I take special interest in the diversity of my client base and it is a usual and frequent occurrence for me to represent wealthy clients, including attorneys, in high dollar real estate or business transactions in one day and go to court the next day to represent an indigent parent who is fighting the state to keep custody of his or her child.


I have contributed to the development of the law in the State of New Jersey having litigated and argued published (DYFS v. A.R.) and non published cases up to the appellate level and I continue to update my legal skills and knowledge through research, seminars and continuing legal education 


In my practice, my clients come first because they keep me in business.

Ms. Adeoye
I have known Mr. Ekeocha for almost 15 years, and in that time he has served as a lawyer in my real estate business, we have served as parish counsel where he was the president, and as a friend. I have lots of respect for Mr. Eheocha as lawyer,because he does undertake any case that goes against his believes.

First Time Home Buyer
As a first time home buyer, I had no idea what entails in home buying process. I approached Chris, who is a member of my church, and he agreed to represent me. Chris invited me to his office, then in East Orange, NJ, and walked me through the buying process. He explained every step of the way to me, including what would be my responsibility as a home buyer, the responsibility of the seller, and his responsibility as an attorney. His in depth knowledge about the home buying process made it easy for me to close earlier, and without complications. Chris was open about his fees, and what my commitment would be if the deal was not closed. There was no hidden fee. He kept me informed every step of the way with phone calls and e-mails. He would return my phone calls as soon as possible. I give him credit for that. Because of his diligence, trustworthiness, and commitment to client's course, I had no hesitation in referring to him two friends of mine who were also buying home for the first time. I recommend him in this course.

Client of Christopher Ekeocha.
I was a first time home buyer and needed a lawyer to take up my case. I had never consulted a lawyer for any reason till when I needed to buy a home. Christopher Ekeocha made me feel very comfortable. He was very dedicated to my case and promptly kept me informed every step of the way till the house was closed. He did not waste any time in giving me every possible legal advice that I needed to be successful in my endeavor. At one point I was struggling in finding a lender to approve my loan. One of his recommendations happened to finally approved my loan.Above all he was very honest with me and that made me totally trust him in regards to the work I entrusted him. At the end of it all I was able to buy my house and at a very good price.
