About me

I founded the Artusa Law Firm to represent people who have family law situations and people who have been injured in accidents and other personal injury cases in New Jersey. It is never easy to be in a situation where you need an attorney but when you are, you should make sure that you and your potential lawyer respect each other, trust each other, and that the lawyer believes in your cause. Without that belief, an advocate will not put his or her all in the case. When your quality of life is at stake whether in a family law context or a personal injury context, it is important not to choose your attorney solely based on price or based on incomplete information. You would not want to hire a dentist to conduct brian surgery just because he is cheaper or because you are in a rush, take your time and select your attorney carefully. You only have one chance to make a first impression with a judge, you cannot try your case again if you are not happy with the outcome, you only have one chance.  Your case is and your future are not worth gambling on, choose wisely. Aside from that, think positive and thank god for the blessings you do have even in times of stress and grief.
