About Our New Jersey Nursing Home Abuse Legal Team

The Justice for Seniors site is a project of the nursing home legal team at Gartenberg Howard LLP. Our goal is to bring attention to nursing home abuse that is happening in our home state of New Jersey.

Our office is in Hackensack and only accepts Nursing Home cases in New Jersey. Our practice of law is founded upon helping our clients identify, address and resolve their personal and business legal issues.

We tailor our services to meet the individual needs of each client in an affordable and attentive manner. You, our client, are always our primary concern. Helping you resolve your needs is our principal purpose.

Local Matters

We have found that when it comes to nursing home abuse cases, local experience counts. We know the courts, the long-term care facilities and the rules and regulations that govern nursing home care in New Jersey.

With several decades of experience, Amie Gartenberg, Tom Howard, Gerry Litwin, Peter Tabisz, Steve Vanderlinden, Sonya Cho  and Pamela Hulnick, have the skills, talents, knowledge and resources to represent you and your interests effectively, whether in fighting nursing home abuse or in related matters such as estate planning, handling probate, appearing in court or providing legal counsel.

Our goal is to exceed your expectations each and every day.
