About me

At our firm, we understand the importance of treating every client with compassion, dignity and respect. We take the time to listen to our clients and work hard to find solutions that fit their needs. We cultivate a close working relationship with our clients and provide them with the personal attention they deserve from the beginning of their case to the end.  We are also committed to providing well-managed, cost-effective personal service while protecting the rights and interests of our clients. We work hard to tailor our services to meet the needs of our clients and we take pride in our reputation as a “hometown” law firm.  We know our neighbors on a first name basis and they know us by ours. 


We have been serving the needs of clients in Bergen, Essex, Passaic and Morris Counties for ten years and we realize that many residents do not have the means to obtain professional legal advice. This is one of the reasons that we offer a free, no obligation consultation with the belief that everyone deserves a helping hand during those times when they need it most.  If you are facing a hardship or just need to speak with someone about options that might be available for resolving your particular problem, feel free to give us a call to set up an appointment for a consultation.

    I have known Jim Fitzpatrick since law school and continued to stay in touch professionally. He is a lawyer of great integrity and takes pride in his work. I would not hesitate to refer matters to him.

  • John Matthew Shari

    I worked with James for several years at Meyner & Landis, LLP. During that time I found that the quality of his work is of the highest caliber, he cares about the people around him (both clients and co-workers) and I have honestly never come across someone who possesses a higher level of integrity. I would recommend him to any of my friends or family members who required legal representation.
