Norris McLaughlin P.A.

Norris McLaughlin, P.A., has been serving the New Jersey community and New York metropolitan area since 1953. Once a humble two-man practice on Main Street in Somerville, New Jersey, Norris McLaughlin has become the largest firm in Somerset County and one of the top 20 firms in New Jersey. In response to the changing needs of our clients and the business community, the firm opened the New York office in 1999. In 2009, Norris McLaughlin merged with Tallman, Hudders & Sorrentino, the largest independent commercial firm in the Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania.

Attorneys at Norris McLaughlin come from diverse backgrounds, hold degrees from top U.S. law schools and regularly serve as leaders in bar associations and various trade groups. With many of its attorneys selected as The Best Lawyers In America each year, in addition to its active repertoire of speaking engagements and legal publications, the firm possesses large-firm talent in a small-firm setting that allows its attorneys to provide service and value to their clients on a personal level. It is the goal of Norris McLaughlin to accommodate the needs of every client through the use of experience, strategic planning, and common courtesy.

Norris McLaughlin enjoys an international reputation for excellence through its membership in Meritas, the largest worldwide affiliation of high-quality, mid-sized law firms. With Meritas, the firm is able to extend its services to clients in every state and in more than 90 foreign countries.
