Robert Neff is an experienced litigator who has defended a wide range of commercial and professional liability and negligence lawsuits in New Jersey state and federal courts.
Robert’s practice runs the gamut from general and product liability claims to construction defect and accident cases. In addition to defending claims at the trial court level, he regularly is called upon by clients and colleagues to brief and argue appeals involving a range of issues before the New Jersey Appellate Division. As mayor of the Borough of Little Silver, NJ, and a civil defense attorney, Robert also has experience with municipal liability litigation and regulations. He recently represented a residential condominium complex before the New Jersey Supreme Court, successfully defending against a challenge to the long-standing lack of liability in New Jersey for residential property owners in sidewalk tort cases, Luchejko v. City of Hoboken, 207 N.J. 191, 23 A.3d 912 (2011).
For several years before attending law school, Robert was a newspaper reporter. In addition to providing him with excellent writing skills, this experience enables Robert to view legal issues objectively and guide his clients toward an unemotional approach that emphasizes creative and cost-effective resolution strategies and seeks to avoid prolonged litigation.
Robert served as a law clerk to the Honorable William G. Bassler, U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey, from 1991 to 1992.
