Skillful, Knowledgeable, Dedicated
Armen McComber and Austin Tobin handled our case with the professionalism you would expect from a law firm of their stature, reputation, and experience. They were open and honest with us from the first phone call, answered every question and every email. We were relieved to find them as passionate about our case as we were, and they were empathetic to the stress we were under. Their team of professionals knew us by name and always made us feel like we were a priority. Armen and Austin's dedication, skill and knowledge of the law provided us with complete confidence that we chose the right attorneys.

Armen let me breathe
Armen represented me during one of the darkest chapters of my life. I was afraid. I was up against forces much bigger and stronger than myself. From the first conversation Armen got it. He was invested and interested. He went to war for me. It was a long fight. He came prepared and strong every single day. He is incredibly talented but he is also equally tough. When I came to Armen I thought I would never find someone with the fortitude necessary to handle my case. I will never forget finding Armen and realizing that I had found my attorney. I knew I could breathe and that everything was going to be OK. I knew I could trust him at a time in my life when I was deeply afraid to place my trust in anyone. I am sure it was business as usual for him, but it meant the world to me.

excellent experience with Mr. McOmber
Mr. Armen McOmber represented me in acquiring a medical practice in 2008. He is extremely responsive and diligent in all matters. The transaction went very smoothly and all my expectations were met. I have subsequently recommended him to other medical colleagues who have all been very satisfied with his practice. Best attorney in Monmouth County!!
