6 KaUFMan, semeraro & leibman llp COMMerCIal real estate, ZOnIng, PlannIng & land Use, labor & employment, COMMerCIal litigation, COMMerCIal tax Statia Grossman at KaUfmaN, semeraro & leibman, llp, partners Paul Kaufman, mark semeraro, and marc leibman have established a diverse practice that focuses on business law, commercial litigation, employment law, commercial real estate transactions and financing, land use and zoning, and commercial tax appeals. the firm also regularly represents insurance carriers, insurance funds, public entities, individuals, and businesses in a variety of matters. the Key to our success is the fact that we are large enough to handle the most significant and complex transactions and litigation matters, but at the same time, we re still small enough to provide personalized, cost effective services, semeraro says. KaUfmaN, semeraro & leibman, llp, is one of the leading firms in new Jersey for land use matters, having handled some of the largest real estate development projects in the state. indeed, Kaufman s work for skymark and i. Park on their respective redevelopment projects in ridgefield Park and edgewater as well as his work on many other development projects has earned him a reputation as one of the top land use attorneys in bergen County. the most rewarding part of HaNdliNG land Use projects is that there s a sense of accomplishment when a substantial project goes forward, Kaufman notes. it s nice to know that you re playing a role in improving the infrastructure of the state for future generations, as well as creating many jobs. semeraro Has also HaNdled several HiGH-profile cases during his career, such as a mahwah toxic tort class action lawsuit consisting of more than 650 plaintiffs, in which he served as lead defense counsel for the borough of LegAL LeAders ringwood. in addition, he has successfully litigated a number of significant commercial, employment, and civil rights cases. mark j. semeraro david r. gelbert when you re dealing with litigation matters, you re walking clients through what s often a very difficult Seated: Paul Kaufman Standing, from left: Mark Semeraro, Marc Leibman moment in their lives regardless of whether it s a business or a personal matter, semeraro says, and being able to provide assistance during that time is very gratifying. leibman who Heads the firm s commercial property tax litigation department agrees, noting: oftentimes in an economic downturn properties lose value, which only compounds a property owner s financial issues. we are always happy to ease financial pressures on our clients by reducing their property tax liability.

7 new jersey s top rated in 2014 lawyers at.law.com/newjerseytoprated legal trends Lawmakers and lawyers in the Garden State passed bills and examined cases that touched on mandatory vaccinations, judicial retirement, and whistleblower protections, while the governor signed a bill granting new rights to adoptees. new jersey law 2014 New Jersey Nurse Who Refused Vaccine Not Guilty of Misconduct Hackettstown Community Hospital in Warren County requires that employees get flu vaccines to help curb the spread of influenza to patients, families, staff, and the wider community. Employees who refuse vaccines for religious or medical reasons are granted an exemption if they provided a note from a religious leader or medical practitioner. Nurse June Valent refused to get vaccinated but claimed no such exemption. She was fired, despite agreeing to wear a mask throughout flu season. As part of the nurse s appeal to reinstate her unemployment benefits, the Appellate Division of the New Jersey Superior Court decided in June that she was not guilty of misconduct, and so was eligible for unemployment benefits. The New Jersey Department of Labor attempted to deny Valent unemployment benefits, arguing that she was fired for insubordination and misconduct. The Appeals Court s ruling makes it clear that First Amendment protections that allow people to opt out of medical procedures on religious grounds also apply to those with secular objections. By denying appellant s application to receive unemployment benefits based only on her unwillingness to submit to the employer s religion-based policy, the Board violated appellant s rights under the First Amendment, the appellate judges wrote in their opinion. Furthermore, the religion exemption merely discriminates against an employee s right to refuse to be vaccinated based only on purely secular reasons. Some New Jersey medical professionals were concerned that the ruling might encourage employees to reject future vaccinations. With this decision, we worry that hospitals and other health care providers are receiving conflicting messages from regulators and the judicial system when, in fact, our bottom-line goal is simply to protect patients during flu season, Aline Holmes, senior vice president of clinical affairs for the New Jersey Hospital Association, said in a statement. Supreme Court Considers State s Whistleblower Law New Jersey s Conscientious Employee Protection Act (CEPA), informally known as the whistleblower law, provides protections for employees who report their employers for violating public health or safety, as well as environmental and financial wellbeing of both individuals and businesses. Some consider it the most far-reaching whistleblower law in the country. But after two lower court rulings interpreted the law in conflicting ways, it s now up to the state Supreme Court to determine the future of CEPA. The court is scheduled to hear the case sometime this fall. In one of the two appellate cases, Massarano v. NJ Transit, the lower court ruled that a New Jersey Transit employee was not protected by CEPA because her alleged whistleblowing activities were part of her job description. However in the other case, Lippman v. Ethico, the panel of appellate judges ruled that all employees were protected by CEPA. Representatives from organizations such as the New Jersey Work Environment Council, The Teamsters Union, Health Professionals and Allied Employees, AFL-CIO, GreenFaith, Environment NJ and NJ Citizen Action hope that the State Supreme Court will overturn the Massarano decision. If we lose that protection, I have a major fear my members will no longer be willing to stand up and buck the system, John Pajak, vice president of Teamsters Local 877 in Linden, said in a conference call about the case, according to the South Jersey Times. Other groups, such as the N.J. Business and Industry Association and the N.J. Employers Association, have filed friend-of-the-court briefs supporting the Massarano decision. They argue that employees who detect unsafe or unethical actions in the course of their job duties should not be protected under CEPA. Judge Rules That Ex-Gay Therapists May Be Liable for Damages So-called ex-gay therapists engage in a controversial conversion therapy that is supposed to transform gay clients into heterosexuals through intensive therapy. In 2012, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) sued one such conversion therapy provider, Jersey City-based Jews Offering New Alternatives for Healing ( JONAH), on behalf of a group of plaintiffs who accused the group of providing failed and damaging therapy. In June, New Jersey Superior Court Judge Peter F. Bariso Jr. denied JONAH s request to deny that lawsuit, paving the way for further claims. Despite the consensus of mainstream professional organizations that conversion therapy doesn t work, this racket continues to scam vulnerable gay men and lesbians out of thousands of dollars and inflicts significant harm on them, Christine P. Sun, deputy legal director for the SPLC, said when the lawsuit was filed in November According to its website, JONAH provides psychological and spiritual counseling, peer support, and self-empowerment to help its patients heal the wounds surrounding homosexuality. But the plaintiffs in the case against JONAH all former clients argue that the organization s therapeutic program is actually humiliating and degrading. Plaintiffs claim that they were forced to strip naked in front of therapists and re-enact past traumatic experiences. They are suing the group under New Jersey s Consumer Fraud Act, arguing that JONAH s claim that it can convert clients from gay to straight is false. The plaintiffs are also seeking to recover damages for failed treatment, as well as for later therapy to correct the damage inflicted by their JONAH experiences. We think it s highly unfortunate that the SPLC would attempt to misuse a state Consumer Fraud Act to basically interfere with the right to self-determination, said Charles LiMandri, president and chief counsel of the Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund. He is arguing Continued on page 16 8 \ New Jersey s top rated lawyers To See A Directory of All AV / Preeminent Rated Attorneys in new jersey visit at.law.com/newjerseytoprated To See A Directory of All AV Preeminent Rated Attorneys in new jersey visit at.law.com/newjerseytoprated new jersey s top rated lawyers 9

Your frustration may be magnified if the custodial parent is uncooperative or antagonistic. Unless a court has terminated your parental rights, however, you still have the right to limited visitation and the right to participate in major decisions affecting the welfare of your children. obeying the custody order Family courts usually encourage parents to agree on custody issues if possible. With or without an agreement, however, the court will issue a written custody order that sets out your rights as a non-custodial parent. Even if you disagree with the custody order, it has the force of law and you could face legal consequences for violating its terms. your VisitatioN rights The custody order will explain your visitation rights in detail. It will list the exact times and days of the week that your children will spend with you, which holidays you can enjoy with them, and which extracurricular and school activities you can attend. The custody order will also outline responsibility for transportation to your home or another location where you will spend time with your children. MaKiNG important life decisions Most states recognize two types of child custody: physical custody and legal custody. If physical custody is granted to only one parent, the child will live with that parent most or all of the time. Legal custody, on the other hand, means the right to make important life decisions for your children. These include matters of religious upbringing and school selection. Even if the custody order requires your children to live with the other parent, it might still grant you full or joint legal custody.

12 new jersey s top rated in 2014 lawyers at.law.com/newjerseytoprated in A personal injury case, A settlement MAy be best need to KnOw if you are injured in a car accident or other incident, someone is often legally responsible for your injury. Filing a personal injury claim could help you obtain compensation from the responsible party to pay your medical bills, as well as other losses. When you settle with the other party, you accept payment for your injury and agree not to sue that party. After an accident, you may have physical, mental or emotional injuries. Even if insurance covers your medical bills, you may (depending on the circumstances) still file a claim for damages. Damages include compensation for lost wages or lost property, disability, rehabilitation, or even future pain and suffering. While some personal injury cases are decided by a judge or jury in a courtroom, many are settled out of court. If your case goes to court, the process can take several years, from beginning to end. If you settle the case instead, the defendant pays an agreed-upon sum of money soon after everything is signed and ready. This agreement should include a statement from you releasing the other party from responsibility. If you ve already filed a lawsuit in court, you will have to agree to drop the case against the other party. YOU MUST PROVE CERTAIN ELEMENTS A personal injury case is usually based on negligence, intentional tort, or strict liability. To prove negligence, you must prove that the defendant failed to fulfill a duty to you (the duty to drive safely, for example), that this failure caused an accident, and that the accident injured you. You can prove an intentional tort by showing that the defendant acted with the intention of harming you, by punching you in the nose, for instance. In some cases you can win based on strict liability, without proving the defendant was at fault. Strict liability may apply if you were injured by a defective product. IT S EASIER TO WIN A PERSONAL INJURY CASE In a criminal prosecution, the legal standard is guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. In a personal injury case, the legal standard is a preponderance of evidence.this means all you have to prove is that the defendant is more than 50 percent likely to be responsible for your injury. These different standards explain why defendants who are acquitted in criminal cases often lose personal injury lawsuits based on the same evidence. 14 New Jersey s top rated lawyers \ DAMAGES ARE NOT LIMITED TO MEDICAL BILLS You can claim damages for many different aspects of your injury, including past and future medical bills, lost work time, and pain and suffering. Damages for pain and suffering are often several times as large as damages for medical bills and lost work time. In negligence cases, however, your damages may be reduced if the accident was partially your fault. In a few states you cannot receive any damages if the accident was even one percent your fault. Most personal injury lawsuits are resolved through private settlements rather than courtroom verdicts. WHEN DECIDING TO SETTLE Settlements can be reached at any point. Often, the insurance company will make a settlement offer after reviewing your records and medical expenses. However, some cases settle after both sides have presented evidence to the judge. In many courts, the parties are required to attend settlement conferences before starting a trial. COMING TO FINANCIAL TERMS You must provide the party responsible for your accident with information about your injuries, expenses, and your need for future treatment. Evidence might include medical records, hospital bills, pay stubs, and witness statements. The defense may ask for a medical examination by a doctor of its choosing, and may hire expert witnesses to disprove your version of the case. Your lawyer can help you estimate how much money you might receive after a trial instead of accepting a settlement. Settlements may be paid in a lump sum or in periodic payments. A structured settlement involves buying financial products called annuities that pay a certain amount every month or year until the total is paid in full. This arrangement can reduce taxes but won t allow you to buy a house or other expensive items because you re getting smaller payments over time. Personal injury litigators often accept cases on a contingency basis, meaning they are not compensated, beyond expenses, unless damages are awarded. A LAWYER CAN HELP Compensation for a claim must cover the injured party s initial medical costs, on going care, damaged property and loss of income. Courts also award compensation for damages more difficult to assign a monetary value, such as loss of social and educational experiences, emotional distress and strains on family members. Whether you re dealing with an insurance company or an individual, you ll first need to determine if you can proceed on your own or if you ll need to hire an attorney. QUESTIONS FOR YOUR ATTORNEY AS SEEN ON To See A Directory of All AV Preeminent Rated Attorneys in new jersey visit at.law.com/newjerseytoprated Do statutes of limitation apply to personal injury law? In addition to my existing medical bills, can I be compensated for any future expenses that can be related to my injury? Which percentage of personal injury cases go to trial? How could a personal injury claim affect my insurance rates?

JONAH sought a summary judgment on grounds that it was not liable for the plaintiffs subsequent therapy. Judge Bariso disagreed. JONAH s conversion therapy damaged the individuals it was meant to cure, he wrote in his ruling. [Therefore] any subsequent costs of repairing Plaintiff s mental or emotional health are the direct and proximate result of JONAH s actions and, hence, should be borne by JONAH. Regardless of profession...for some folks in terms of their intellect, [mandatory retirement at 70] is probably a bit young. - Assemblyman David Wolfe 16 New Jersey s top rated lawyers \ Debate concering Retirement Age for Judges Judges on the Supreme Court of the United States have no mandatory retirement age; they can serve into their 90s and beyond, if they so choose. The New Jersey constitution, however, mandates that judges retire from the bench at age 70 a mandate that many experts have begun to question. Leading the charge is retired state Supreme Court Justice Stewart Pollock, who retired from the bench 15 years ago at age 66. Pollock has gone on to have a successful private legal career in the years since his retirement. When the constitution was adopted in 1947, life expectancy was shorter, Pollock told the Newark Star-Ledger. Now people live and work longer. It seems to me reasonable to extend it. The state legislature is considering putting on the November ballot a constitutional amendment that raises the retirement age to 75. Regardless of profession whether you re a doctor, lawyer, schoolteacher for some folks in terms of their intellect, it s probably a bit young, said Assemblyman David Wolfe, the lead sponsor of the ballot initiative. Further complicating the issue is the state s strained budget system. Extending judge s tenure on the bench might entitle them to higher pensions, argue opponents of the initiative. Supporters counter that working longer will mean that pension terms will be shorter, thus saving the state money. However, the ballot initiative might not pass muster with voters. Similar efforts in Arizona, Louisiana, Ohio and New York have failed in recent years. New Law Gives New Jersey Adoptees New Rights Thanks to a new bill signed into law by Governor Chris Christie in May, New Jersey adoptees are now able to request original copies of their original birth certificate without getting a court order first. The new law replaces previous legislation, which will remain in effect until Under the previous law, adoptees needed a court order to view their birth certificate. This policy, in effect since the 1940s, was an attempt to protect birth parents privacy. The new law allows adoptees born in New Jersey and certain others (including direct descendants, siblings or spouses of New Jersey adoptees, as well as the adoptive parent, legal guardian or other legal representative of the adopted person) to request the records from the state s registrar. The current bill, S873, also allows birth parents to file a document with the registrar indicating whether or not they would like to be contacted. Birth parents who gave children up for adoption before August 1, 2015, can request that the state registrar redact their name from birth documents to protect their anonymity. However, they must provide regularly updated information about family medical, social, and cultural history. Adoptees now have an opportunity to know all of the things that someone from a traditional birth family possess, which is not only the knowledge about our medical history but who we are, what our ethnicity is, what our family stories are all those stories we tell around the dinner table on Thanksgiving, said Senator Joseph Vitale, one of the bill s sponsors.
