Experienced trial litigation attorney.   I have handled numerous trials and managed criminal and civil matters, including insurance recovery cases for policyholders and consumer fraud actions.  Over the course of my carrer my policyholder clients have been awarded over $1 billion from insurance companies.  I was formerly a partner in a large New York litigation firm and now am focusing my practice on helping businesses and individuals in a cost-effective manner. 

I am a member of the Executive Committee of the Solo and Small Firm Section of the New Jersey State Bar Association and Secretary of the Christian Brothers Acadamy Alumni Association. 

I am a proud supporter of the March of Dimes and my family has previously served as Ambassador speakers for this great organization. 

In my free time I enjoy life at the beach, spending time with my family and playing soccer.

Highly Recommended!
We were faced with two legal disputes with contractors who did very shoddy work at our home and refused to fix their mistakes. Mr. Denver filed one lawsuit in Ocean County Special Civil Part and another in Monmouth County Superior Court, Law Division. He was able to successfully resolve both matters extremely quickly, without protracted litigation, and obtained a settlement which allowed us to fix the shoddy work. Mr. Denver is not only knowledgeable about the relevant laws concerning our cases, he has a tremendous depth of experience and is an outstanding negotiator and litigator, which was clearly reflected in his dealings with the plaintiffs. He is also a brilliant strategist and tactician, a superb communicator and a sincere and caring advocate. He has a nearly photographic memory and pays attention to details. Mr. Denver had tremendous patience with us throughout the entire litigation process, keeping us up-to-date constantly as the cases progressed and explaining complex legal issues in a way we could understand and make informed decisions. We spent a great deal of time searching and evaluating attorneys that could help us, and we are ecstatic and pleased with our choice and outcome. Unequivocally, you cannot get a better, more professional, first-rate attorney than Mr. Denver, and we wholeheartedly recommend him.

Bill worked beyond the call of duty to pursue my medical insurance co. in doing their duty.
Bill worked well beyond the call of duty to pursue my medical insurance co, who simply needed to perform their obligation of approving a medication, even rejecting it. was fine to expedite the process, and Bill got them to do that through his tireless work. Nobody else was able to do that. He got me my meds and thus kept me alive.

A "bulldog" in the best sense of the word
I would have faced a severely depleted financial retirement future had it not been for Mr. Denver's patient persistence in pursuit of Insurance coverage related to the excavation and remediation required as a result of oil seepage from an abandoned oil tank discovered in the process of my selling the house in which I had lived for 40 years, The soil contamination was found to be deep and close to the house foundation, requiring multiple installations of steel foundation supports. With the cost of the remediation building close to 6 figures, and the Insurance Company I had for over 40 years denying my initial Homeowners policy claim, I had the good fortune to have a friend recommend retaining Dr. Denver at the Denver Law Firm. Mr. Denver studied survey maps, engineer's and soil boring reports, and voluminous material and documents related to the Environment Company's work. He worked with me to gather as much documentation as I could find related to past insurance policies even though in the anticipation of moving, I had shredded ancient records. He pursued the Insurance Company to conduct a policy search, established sufficient proof of coverage going back many years, and through negotiations and persistence, and without litigation which could have taken years, successfully obtained for me a significant contribution from the Insurance company toward the cost of the remediation. Mr. Denver was thorough, professional, encouraging and supportive, and I would highly recommend his company and services without reservation.

Thank you for your review. Underground storage tank situations can be feel overwhelming at first but I was very glad to help you find the insurance coverage, get the property cleaned up and enable you to the sell the home.

My wife and I worked with Bill Denver on a Superstorm Sandy insurance claim. We have the highest respect and praise for his work ethic, professionalism, attention to detail and legal knowledge. Our outcome was extremely better than anticipated. His case research uncovered information in our favor that significantly leveraged our position vs the insurance carrier. Bill was incredibly professional throughout the entire process. He explained the legal jargon to us very clearly so that we felt fully abreast of the developments. He was extremely responsive to our questions. He even reviewed our insurance documents for us going forward to ensure we are fully protected going forward. We felt like we had a friend on our side during this extremely stressful situation.
