My approach to the practice of law involves first helping clients develop and clearly articulate their objectives and then working until those objectives are either reached or exceeded.  - Kevin I. Asadi, Esq.

Kevin Asadi helps clients with transactions and other cases involving real estate, business, litigation, estate planning & administration and land development. At a time when attorneys are under enormous pressure to specialize, Kevin considers his ability to apply the breadth of his experience to be one of his greatest strengths. 
After graduating from Rutgers University School of Business and a brief stint on Wall Street, Kevin decided a career in the law would be the most fulfilling path for himself. Upon earning his Juris Doctor from Seton Hall University School of Law, and completing his Judicial Clerkship, Kevin joined Zager Fuchs in 2005, and has been a full partner since 2012.
During this time, Kevin has developed very distinct - but related - areas of practice which allow him to spot and resolve peripheral issues that a so-called "specialist" might miss, sometimes saving clients from otherwise disastrous results. In his real estate practice, Kevin has earned the confidence of many realtors who refer their clients to him trusting they will be well represented.  As a land use attorney, Kevin has been selected for inclusion as a Rising Star by Super Lawyers magazine in 2014-2017, one of only four (4) attorneys in the State of New Jersey with that distinction. His service on various planning and zoning boards over the past ten (10) years has only accelerated his experience in that field.
As a genuine counselor at law to so many of his clients, whether the case requires transactional, land use or litigation work, Kevin's "bottom line" orientation and personable demeanor helps clients reach their objectives efficiently and with a view of the big picture.

Excellent First Class Compassionate **GETS THE JOB DONE RIGHT THE FIRST TIME**
I had the pleasure of Mr. Asadi representing me in a two year nightmare sale which several other attorneys bungled to the point of malpractice. Kevin undid the horrendous damage in less than one week by working a "MIRACLE" & we closed today. He is professional, courteous, HONEST, compassionate. I definitely will retain his excellent services for my other properties. Thank you, Kevin.

My wife and I were referred to Kevin by a friend. From day one, he made us feel comfortable and confident that he would get us the best deal as our lawyer and get the job done. Even though our situation was tricky and not conventional, Kevin came through and would not let the deal fall through. Professional, friendly, relentless and reasonable. I can’t thank him enough for his services and have recommended his services to everyone I know personally and professionally.

Landlord-Tenant court
I hired Kevin last year to help with a difficult tenant. Kevin was very confident that he could get a good outcome for me and he did. It was very clear that he was familiar with the court and he was professional at all times. After that was done, he helped me get a judgement for money damages against the tenant. He is a good lawyer and he cared about the outcome. I would definitely work with Kevin again.

Kevin is the BEST!
As my fiance and I initiated our search for the "perfect" fixer upper, we reached out to our realtor and asked her for any recommendations regarding real estate attorneys, home inspectors, etc. since this process was completely new to us. She informed us that the BEST lawyer (and only) to work with is Kevin Asadi. And, she could not have been more on the money. Kevin was there every step of the way (even after our first deal fell through). He provided us with guidance, support, and put us at ease whenever we had any questions or concerns. We are truly appreciative of Kevin's hard work and dedication in making our dreams a reality. We look forward to working with Kevin in the future!

What A Pleasure To Work With!!
Kevin Asadi is exactly what you want in a real estate lawyer. He's experienced, professional, direct, and fair. Plus he's just a good guy and easy to work with. He just helped me close on my first home last week, and I couldn't be happier. He addressed all my concerns about the transaction and went the extra mile on a couple occasions to take care of some of the nuances of my home purchase. I would highly recommend utilizing Kevin as your real estate lawyer!! I'm so happy that I did.

Highly Recommend
I recently had the pleasure of working with Kevin Asadi, Esq. on a real estate transaction with mutual clients wherein he was the purchasers' attorney and I was their mortgage loan originator. My documents were submitted to processing on May 18th and the loan closed on June 15th. In this market the only way for a transaction to run this smoothly and close so quickly is through a team effort with highly skilled individuals. Mr. Asadi personally kept an open line of communication with all parties throughout the transaction, provided required documents to me on an immediate basis, and copied me on all pertinent emails. At the closing table it was clear to see the amount of knowledge he possessed. Most importantly he conducted the closing with both professionalism and humor to make the end process a most enjoyable one for our mutual clients as well as all who attended. Those are rare qualities that cannot be taught. Recommending someone to others is not something to be done lightly as your own reputation is on the line. That being said, I have no problem recommending Mr. Asadi to anyone wishing to buy, sell, or refinance a home. Anyone retaining him will be in very capable hands. Joan

Excellent Attorney
Mr. Asadi was recommended to us to use when we were buying/selling our home. He was extremely attentive, provided excellent advise and explained the process to us not using legalese. It was our first time buying and selling a home which can very stressful. He helped take the stress away. We highly recommend Kevin Asadi, Esq. if you are looking for an attorney when buying and /or selling a home.

Real Estate Tax Appeal
Kevin is a true Professional and a pleasure to work with! He represented my interests in a Real Estate Tax Appeal and successfully reduced our tax liability by over 14%!
Posted by anonymous | December 18, 2014
Great resource
We used Kevin when we bought our house last year. Kevin and the paralegal Laurie were great to deal with. A few months after we closed he called and said that he thought he could lower our property taxes for us, and he did it! Thanks again Kevin!
Posted by Susyn | December 3, 2014
Would not hesitate to use again or to recommend
Kevin listened carefully to what my situation was, asked good questions and provided options and possible results from those options. Once we decided on our course - he stayed on it and kept me informed along the way. The date of the trial, he did a terrific job of mediating in a very professional way and always with my interests in mind. While I would hope not to have to engage in legal services again - I wouldn't hesitate to call Kevin if I did.

Kevin Asadi awesome Red Bank NJ attorney
Kevin Asadi created a rental agreement and customized it for my unique problems with a current tenant. He had even included many situations that I hadn't considered. We met as his convenient office in Red Bank, had a few phone calls and emails. He is very attentive and follows through.
